Hercules: Three Hands Press, 2017. Limited Edition. A FINE CLOTH COPY in full color dust jacket. Profusely illustrated. Co-edited by Daniel A. Schulke, Madeleine LeDespencer, Tom Allen, Martin Duffy, and Maria Dolorosa. The figure of the Witch has haunted the margins of religion and spirituality for thousands of years, as a figure of transgressive spiritual power, outlaw magic, and alluring sexuality. Equally pervasive is her presence in art, from ancient depictions in the near east, through the European Middle Ages, down to her present representations in occult subculture. WITCH-IKON gathers a vast selection of witch images and their diabolical magic, emphasizing the range of artistic depictions that have helped coalesce this most powerful of modern supernatural icons. Numerous full color images are accompanied by several scholarly essays concerning the iconography of witchcraft, the magic of images, and the iconography used to represent witches through time. Special sections on archaeological artifacts of folk magic and malefic sorcery shed light on previously obscure symbols of the Witch's art. The book includes writings by Michael Bertiaux, Daniel A. Schulke, Madeleine LeDespencer, Martin Duffy, Lee Morgan, and Jon Crabb. Contemporary artists include: K. Lenore Siner, Mike Davis, Andrew D. Chumbley, Roberto Migliussi, Marzena Ablewska, Tom Allen, Santiago Caruso, Carolyn Hamilton-Giles, Johnny Decker Miller, Madeline Von Foerster, Benjamin Vierling, Timo Ketola, and many others. 288 pages.
