POISON APPLE PRINTSHOP

: : Midnight falls where the woodlands kiss the sea.
Steps a seer through the veil,
conjuring and tempting thee.
All is shadowed as the realm of men sleeps still,
Her nocturne not a song,
but the scratching of a quill. : :

Abracadabra by Adrienne Rozzi for Poison Apple Printshop. Limited edition handmade screen print on grey paper. 
First used in the third century C.E., Abracadabra is a medieval magic formula believed to have powers of protection and healing. Often written repeatedly in the design of an inverted triangle, it was inscribed on amulets and worn by those suffering from disease or sickness. One would repeat the incantation over and over, each time dropping the last letter and believing as the word got shorter the sickness weakened. There are many conflicting theories as to the true origin of the word but most believe it is derived from the Aramaic phrase “avra kehdabra,” meaning “I create what I speak.” Another popular theory is that comes from the Chaldean “abbada ke dabra,” meaning “Perish like the word.”
