What is the distance that appears to us through these blind arcades and trefoils of black stone, and that would not appear anywhere else but here, in these forgotten cities of the old Europe? Within the blinking of an eye mythical beasts roam the threadbare seams between day and dream, exchanging seductive glances. At these interstices maps lose their form, borders warp and the moment devours the watchful and the unwary alike.

In Amsterdam an elderly bookseller discovers that his late wife once knew the Devil.

In the wilds of the Carpathian Mountains refugees from occupied Poland hide in a long lost museum devoted to the memory of Bruno Schulz.

In Prague a portraitist is hired to paint a countess whose appearance is never the same twice.

The Bestiary of Communion comprises three long tales of enchantment and occultism from one of the noblest ambassadors of the Sacred and Holy Underworld.
