With The Ocult Bookstore hosting, members of the NU BLK Lodge helped produce the Chicago launch of Michael Bertiaux’s Ontological Graffiti last month. Already the fastest selling pre-order in publisher Fulgur’s history, all copies provided for the launch event sold out.

Yesterday, Fulgur announced the DELUXE Edition of this title, and it sold out within 12 hours!

BLK Lecture Series Featuring Michael Bertiaux

Black Lotus Kult is launching a filmed lecture series, and our first entry comes from our NU BLK Lodge Patriarch, Most Reverend Michael Bertiaux.

Leading up to the launch of his new book, Ontological Graffiti (Fulgur, 2016), we will be releasing some of his lectures that we have recorded over the years. These will cover a wide range of topics, but often include talks of specific artworks, many of which will be featured in O.G..

Here is a very brief preview, with much more to come!

Michael Bertiaux’s Ontological Graffitti coming soon (for real)

In a bold awaking from a short slumber, the infamous publisher Fulgur has completely updated their website. They are, as the expression goes, back with a vengeance, and have announced a (very) long-awaited title:

Michael Bertiaux’s Ontological Graffitti will be published later this year.

A heavy book (in every sense of the word), covering a very important period in the development of Bertiaux’s magical universe, OG will be Fulgur’s most ambitious title published to date. Over 400 pages of lucid text, fully illustrated in full-colour with Bertiaux’s amazing artwork, this title will cover the period between his return from Haiti and his eventual leadership in various occult orders such as the OTOA/LCN and the Monastery of the Seven Rays.

This book gets our highest possible recommendation, both in terms of it’s content, and in Fulgur’s planned presentation.
