The Language of Birds

Chance, the great beloved of gamblers, lovers, generals and kings, has long held sway over mortal affairs. Whether assuming the form of the goddess Fortuna and her ever-turning Wheel, or the abstract mathematic of ‘randomness’ Her favor is universally sought, and Her displeasure feared. To the devotee of Chance, Divination may be regarded as Her secret liturgy, providing glimpses of the unknown to those she esteems.

Into the retort of the alchemist-poet, Pendell compounds portent, omen, oracle, and the art of prediction to distill The Language of the Birds, a reverie upon the nature of the Goddess of Fortune and the sacred function of Chance.

The Language of Birds is 72 pages, printed on heavy acid-free art stock, with ten illustrations. It was released in a trade paper edition, a standard hardcover edition with dust jacket limited to 250 copies, and a deluxe edition in quarter morocco limited to 50 copies.
