Calendrier Magique, text by Austin de Croze, 1895

June: Woman embracing a dark demon; evil fairies of the smoke; frogs and owls in a night-time ritual.

No one knows why this calendar was created for the year 1896, or if the rituals it describes were real or imagined.

The address on the cover is the birthplace of Art Nouveau, Bing’s Paris gallery where artists like Les Nabis would meet.

The address on the cover is the birthplace of Art Nouveau, Bing’s Paris gallery where great artists like Les Nabis would meet. What else happened there?


February:
 The cardinal directions; angel of death with winged skull
