Idolatry Restor'd: Witchcraft and the Imaging of the Divine
Schulke, Daniel A
Three Hands Press
The translation of magical power to image is a matter well understood in so-called 'primitive' sorcery, in which occurs a mutual embodiment of re-presentation and the Represented.

Austin Osman Spare: The Occult Life of London's Legendary Artist
North Atlantic Books
Austin Osman Spare is the definitive biography of the controversial occultist and artist, an enfant terrible of the Edwardian art world whose work was both hailed as genius and decried as immoral decadence. As George Bernard Shaw reportedly said, "Spare's medicine is too strong for the average man."
