Description

York Beach, Maine USA: The Teitan Press, 2013. First Edition Hardcover. Landscape format 8vo. xii + [ 45 plates each printed on rectos only]. Fine black cloth spine with gilt lettering, charcoal papered boards with gilt title and facsimile Crowley signature, full colour plates, charcoal endpages. Edition limited to 418 hand numbered copies. Book is signed by  David Tibet and Keith Richmond on attached bookplate

Reproduces in full a series of colour and black and white sketches, mostly of women, from a sketchbook utilised by Aleister Crowley from the late 1930s to the early 1940s, and now preserved in the Yorke collection. While the 45 plates include a number of finished drawings, most are unpolished designs, possibly “roughs” for later more detailed compositions. Although hardly examples of “high art,” they offer a fascinating glimpse of Crowley’s process of imagining his art, and the varied styles with which he experimented. With a five page Introduction by Crowley art aficionados David Tibet and Keith Richmond.
