CLAVIS JOURNAL, Number Two; Journal of Occult Arts, Letters, and Experience.
Xoanon / Three Hands & Ouroburous Press, 2013. A FINE COPY IN A CUSTOM STOCK ART PAPER. Small quarto. Clavis 2 features more than twice the content of our inaugural edition, with an international fellowship of contributors. Author and scholar Henrik Bogdan discusses the nature of Secrecy in Occult Orders, and Dr. Gordan Djurdjevic explores both the perils and allure of sex magical workings with Our Lady Babalon. In its first major English manifesto, the German magical order Fraternitas Saturni entreats the magical gnosis of Saturn. Esoteric Astrologer Austin Coppock explores baneful celestial powers in his essay "Death From Above", and Michael Howard writes of the Freemason's Artificer. We are also pleased to include an unpublished ritual with art by Andrew D. Chumbley; research on Arabian magical Talismans; a rite from Cornish Witchcraft practitioner Gemma Gary, and the Faustian essay "Theatre of Personality" by Aaron Piccirillo examines the magic of self-fashioning. New contributors in this issue are Carlos Melgoza, Robert Hull, and AR Craig. Occult imagery of Madeleine Von Foerster, Billy Davis, Brigid Marlin, Jamie Sweetman, Richard Kirk, John Kleckner, Jose Luis Rodriguez Guerra, Benjamin Vierling, Joseph Uccello, Raven Ebner, and a host of others illustrates the text. Over 200 pages. (Item ID: X-C2)
