Emerald Tablet – the book, the translation, the significance. Talk and Book Presentation.
The Emerald Tablet is one of the root texts of alchemy, a brief alchemical work attributed to Hermes Trismegistus. This publication is a collection of new translations by Brian Cotnoir of the earliest extant Arabic and Latin versions with accompanying essay and commentary.
The Emerald Tablet is not only a fresh contribution to alchemical studies it is also an example of book art at its finest. Bound in two limited editions of leather and silk, the book draws on the elements of Islamic and Western sacred geometry in the overall design, typesetting and especially in the two cover emblems.
Copies of the Emerald Tablet will be available along with other work by Brian Cotnoir.

various aspects of the art.
