In occult literature, the Vestments of the Art Magical are poorly understood, principally because few save the body of initiates behold them. The robe, mask, hood, mantle, garter, and veil which constitutes the exterior dress of the witch, trace their pedigree back to a Number of magical sources, each constituting a mystery of form and function. These mystical underpinnings often possess a deeper Arcanum, being both emblematic of specified witch-powers and serving a hidden ritual purpose. The text is illustrated with five original drawings by Sussex artist, Steve Damerell. Octavo. (Item ID: F3-X-M2d)
