Hercules: Three Hands Press, 2013. Limited to 396 copies. OUT OF PRINT. Fine Cloth Volume in dust jacket. The translation of magical power to image is a matter well understood in so-called 'primitive' sorcery, where there occurs a mutual embodiment of representation, and the represented. The Fetish, for example, apprehends a reciprocal process between Object and Creator that often begins long before chisels and adzes are set to wood. Many of these eldritch forms of image-making were concerned with accessing power, and it was only later, in the context of religious devotion, that their forms densified into 'mere' idols. First published as an essay in the British folklore quarterly. "The Cauldron" in 2009, Idolatry Restor'd drew upon the experiential arenas of magical practice and Image-Artistry which came to inform Schulke's book, Lux Haeresis (Xoanon, 2011). Here substantially expanded with illustrations prepared specially for the work by the author, Idolatry Restor'd is a book that strikes to the heart of magical image-aesthesis. 96 pages. Small Octavo. OUT OF PRINT. (Item ID: X-IR)
