I've always been fascinated by anthropodermic bibliopegy, the practice of binding books in human skin.

Such a book links the short stories in my trilogy collection, A Thousand Fiendish Angels. It contains words that can summon great power — but at a price that echoes through three generations.

For this #1 of 1 NFT, The varieties of human skin, I used generative AI art tool, Conjure.art, with the following passage from my story:

“As the violet light touched the stone with a sickly haze, I saw the book. A visceral desire to possess it rose within me, and I lifted it from its resting place, pulling it to my chest like a long-lost lover. The cover was soft leather, a patchwork of colors reminiscent of the varieties of human skin. It smelled of ancient herbs, a heady scent of rich tombs and incense disguising the darker note of death.”

After the AI engine produced the first set of images, I iterated and filtered the finished images until I reached my creative goal.

The NFT includes a special edition of A Thousand Fiendish Angels as unlockable content.

If you find anthropodermic bibliopegy interesting, then I also weave it into my crime thriller, Deviance.

A Thousand Fiendish Angels collection image

A collection of 1 of 1 NFTs using generative art inspired by my short story trilogy, A Thousand Fiendish Angels. Inspired by Dante's Inferno, linked by a book of human skin passed down through generations.

Sins of the Flesh: When the mutilated corpse of a wealthy author is discovered, the police officer sent to investigate finds a curious diary amongst the occult objects at the scene. Will he uncover the author's secret at the ruined chapel, and is he willing to pay the price that it demands?

Sins of Treachery: On the death of their Grandfather, twin brothers are left a map covered in alchemical symbols that could lead them to great wealth and power. But they find more than they expected in the frozen wastes of the Arctic north.

Sins of Violence: In a brutal post-apocalyptic world, a young girl is about to be taken to The Minotaur for a Blessing that will end her innocence. Can her sister gain access to the fortified city of Dis in time to stop the ritual and avenge her lost youth?
