A Day in Rennes-le-Chateau by Chris Mikul


via Blackguard on 3/23/10

Chris Mikul (BIZARRISM) recounts his visit to the site of a mysterious church in a mountainous area of southern France. In 1891 the priest, Sauniere, while restoring the church, discovers some ancient and cryptic parchments concealed in a hollow pillar. This discovery and subsequent fantastic events inspired the book The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail, which was in more recent times "pillaged" by Dan Brown for The Da Vinci Code.
The cover of this booklet depicts the devil found just inside the front door of the Rennes-le-Chateau church, installed by priest Sauniere. A devil in a church? It's the only one in France! This one originally held a pitchfork, which was later removed because of the likelihood of it poking some kid's eye out. There are also some very nice illustrations throughout, including one of the devil statue minus his pitchfork (he doesn't look happy about it, in fact he looks like he wants it back!)
This is a limited print run of one hundred, so email Chris for availability and ordering info.
