We're big book buyers here at Necropolis Now. Some may say we are worshippers of the scribal god, Thoth, and they wouldn't be wrong. The latest book I got - just today - was a fab one called "Damned: An Illustrated History of the Devil" by Robert Muchembled (Seuil/Chronicle 2002). It's big format and glossy, but I got it quite cheap from Clouston & Hall Booksellers - they are based in Canberra. Here's a pic I like from the book called "The Devilish Temptress" by Cecilio Pla Gallardo (1900). It originally graced the cover of a publication called "Blanco y Negro". If you're interested in this sort of sinister depiction of women, I recommend checking out Bram Dijkstra's book "Idols of Perversity: Fantasies of Feminine Evil in Fin-De-Siecle Culture" (Oxford University Press 1986).
