Emmanuel Orazi, also known as Manuel Orazi, was born in Rome in 1860. He moved to Paris in 1892, where he worked as a graphic artist in the media and advertising. He collaborated with the Maison de l'Art Nouveau gallery in the field of jewellery design, illustrated "Aphrodite" by Pierre Louis, the French epic "Huon of Bordeaux", stories by Arthur Conan Doyle and "Flowers of Evil" by Charles Baudelaire. In 1895, together with Austen de Crozet, he created the occult "Magic Calendar" ("Calendrier Magique"), published in an edition of 777 copies based on lithographs. The authors of the Calendar parodied the Christian calendars of the time by using alchemical symbols, images of demons, witches, black masses, diagrams, toads, owls and other symbols of evil spirits. Esotericism was popular among intellectuals at the beginning of the 20th century, so dark themes were common in literature and art. After the scandalous arrest of Jacques Ferzen, Orazi produced several illustrations for the newspaper L'assiette au berre. In 1921, he designed posters for the Franco-Belgian silent film Atlantis.
