10.00

The Homunculus (Latin: little man). An artificial, created “rational animal,” or human being that, according to Paracelsus, “has all the limbs and features of a child born of woman, except much smaller.” This ‘zine is a collection of excerpts from a range of texts and images, from Aristotle to the 17th century, dealing with the generation of life both natural and artificial. Included are translations from The Book of the Cow, and Jabir ibn Hayyan’s Book of the Concentration. This small work is more or less a little reader on the homunculus.

Brian Cotnoir is an alchemist, artist, and award-winning filmmaker. He was the “alchemist in residence” at Morbid Anatomy Museum. He occasionally gives talks and has presented workshops and seminars around the world on various aspects of alchemical theory and practice based on his research. His Emerald Tablet was part of the Language of the Birds: Occult and Art show in 2016 in New York City.
