Daimonic Essence

Daimonic Essence Cover © 2016 Janice Duke

This is the draft book cover for Daimonic Essence, a book about essential oils, incense and plant mythology I am currently fully illustrating for the lovely Dana Varahi. The internal images are decorative headers and footers and illustrations of plants, focussing on their mythical associations and blending these with their anatomy.

From the author herself:

The book charts my journey into researching and making Abramelin Oil and Incense. It will introduce the reader to its rich historical and multicultural background dating to ancient Babylon and Egypt.  It will present the wide array of possible ingredients and their botanical identities. It includes plenty of hands on instructions and recipes as well as an abundant plant section presenting folklore and different uses for the plants.

Watch out for sneak peeks and updates!
