Works by Austin Osman Spare (1886-1956) – painter, poet, occultist, visionary. If u r interested in magical works I recommend u to read his The Book Of Pleasure. It explains a lot of Spare’s ideas, especially the use of sigils in magical works. As it is difficult to get/find pics on the net of him I hope I did not use a wrong one in this set – as far as I know (in all conscience), those pics in the set are made by the maestro himself.
On this very link u find the free library/site of the Hermetic Order Of The Golden Dawn – many free pdfs of magical writings, including the formentioned Book Of Pleasure.
Always reblog Spare.
What is this about?
This is my attic blog. It's an archive of old blog entries and posts on various blogs and blog-like things. When I close a project down, it goes here. This may move, the links aren't permanent, but if you're interested in reading stuff I've written over the years – go nuts!
CAUTION: it's about as well sorted as you'd expect an attic to be.
