Tarotdevil

A collection of images that I like enough to let the internet know that I like them. I am particularly fond of the occult, art nouveau, the female form, and heavy and experimental music. Sometimes the noise/drone I create makes it's way here. If you want to see what I myself create, check out my website at: www.howlingfalcon.wordpress.com

Why is it that when you go to a non-specialty book store and look at their selection of books on the occult in general, that you only find books written about famous occultists, and never any by them? I’ll happily go to the specialty stores, but….. why would you read a book about, say, Crowley, instead of just getting something he wrote himself?

Horiyoshi III, from “100 Demons”
If anyone knows the name of this demon, let me know. I can’t seem to find it anywhere. I’m fairly certain there’s a specific demon/oni who has the huge axe.
