Hercules: Three Hands, 2013. Limited to 66 hand-numbered copies only. Bound in full Turquoise leather with custom end papers; A FINE VOLUME IN FINE DUST JACKET, With ten original illustrations by Carolyn Hamilton-Giles. Custom designed binding by Daniel Schulke with special text papers. This new work on magical states suggests that for the metaphysical domain to become significant it must distort its appearance so as to attract our attention. This leads not only to validating the existence of the 'Other', but also illustrates its influence on how we shape the, and our, world. Providing groundbreaking insight on the magician's actuated relationship with spirits and Gods, The Afflicted Mirror offers a pioneering examination of a topic often overlooked by scholars. As an original phenomenological model, Peter Hamilton-Giles' The Afflicted Mirror unites such diverse spiritual states as the mysticism of the Seer, the religious ecstasy of the Saint, and the spirit-conjurations of the sorcerer. 172 pages. Octavo. (Item ID: X-Amd)
