Lush and frothy, incisive and witty, Shola Von Reinholds decadent queer literary debut immerses readers in the pursuit of aesthetics and beauty, while interrogating the removal and obscurement of Black figures from history.

Mathilda has long been attuned to the aesthetics of her environment, and enamoured with the Bright Young Things of the 20s. Her Transfixtions culminate when she uncovers a forgotten' Black Scottish modernist poet, Hermia Drumm.

As she endeavours to unearth everything she can about this Black Princess, she enrols in an artist residency dedicated to opposing extravagance and aesthetics. From abnegating Thought Artists, champagne theft and Black Modernisms, to art sabotage, alchemy and lotus-eating proto-luxury communist cults, Mathilda takes us on extravagant escapades in her attempts to uncover systems of erasure and embody ephemeral ideals of fluidity and beauty long held captive.

Need to be discreet? No problem! Everything is sent out in plain packaging.

Deliveries in the UK seem to be pretty much back to normal since the 20th May 2021. We only send things first class and 99% are arriving in 1 - 2 working days.

International orders are still taking longer, due to different country lockdowns, the increase in online shopping and the reduction of flights carrying cargo and deliveries around the world. You should expect international orders to take longer than normal, although many are arriving on time. Some international orders take 2 weeks, some take 2 months. That's just the way of the world at the moment.

We use Royal Mail for deliveries with a tracking barcode. Once an item is with Royal Mail, we're not able to track it until it's been delivered/signed for. 

We can not be held responsible if your order does not arrive for a certain date.
