Austin Osman Spare : The Valley of Fear

£150.00

Product description

Very good condition, limited edition no. 666 of 700. Dark green dust jacket and cloth hardcover in very god condition. The pages are in excellent condition.

Reproduction of the 1924 sketchbook and includes an analytical introductory essay discussing the development of Spare's magico-aesthetic.

This book is valuable and will be sent via courier at an increased postage cost.

Austin Osman Spare (1886-1956) is one of the most influential and innovative figures in twentieth century occultism. A natural artist and psychic, Spare’s explorations of the creative focus gave rise to an ontology and body of work that departs radically from conventional occultism, both then and now. Ahead of his time, he was dismissed by Crowley early in his career, but found appreciation and understanding with the next generation, who embraced his ideas with alacrity.
