The ideal associate is a book.

Of course a book is not the only ally wanted in this world — but arguably the best. Portable. Stackable. Focused. Infinitely reliable and wholly self sufficient. What else in this world speaks as much and keeps as quiet. A book is more patient than any friend. More ready with “mystic truths” than any artist.  No living high-priest or scholar fits into an architectural niche like a book. No witch knows as many spells as a book. Books are even above influence and bribery. Suffice it to say, a book is a ridiculously good tool in this muck of a world — and risking redundancy — an ideal companion.

Please note:

  • Keep books away from open flame or sparks.
  • Books are prone to mold and mildew under damp conditions.
  • Isolate from caustic substances such as acids and bases.
