Brief Notes on Book

Risograph printed zine

Essay

Two of my most passionate collecting interests are occult texts and books with lavish illustration; Daria Tessler’s “Albertus Magnus” zine embodies both. It contains magical recipes from 13th century occult philosopher Albertus Magnus alongside full-bleed psychedelic illustrations on every page. Printed by Chicago’s own Perfectly Acceptable press, this risograph edition boasts neon colors and sumptuous texture that the later offset edition just couldn’t match. To me, this work exemplifies the union of historical research and contemporary illustration — produced here in Chicago by masters of independent art book publishing. It’s very dear to my heart!
