Apocalyptic Witchcraft - Deluxe Edition

A superb copy of the Deluxe "Of the Crows" Fine Edition of Apocalyptic Witchcraft, by Peter Grey. It is a gorgeous book, as are all the fine editions, published by Scarlet Imprint; but this was obviously a labour of love, so no expense was spared in the materials chosen for producing it. Bound in full gold hand-grained morocco, with black crows blocked into front and back, it has black page edges, and heavy black speckled end sheets, and is housed in a sturdy black cloth slip-case. It is a beautiful volume, and an excellent read - poetic, insightful, at times controversial, it is intelligently written, and stands as a manifesto, heralding a unique and very original vision of witchcraft. This fine edition was limited to 81 numbered copies.

Product Description

Details

The spectre of witchcraft is haunting the West, the dead giving up their secrets. This is a ritual unveiling of these mysteries. It is a vision and a revelation of the mythopoetic structure of the Art. Apocalyptic Witchcraft is a bold project which does not seek to impose an orthodoxy on what is the heresy of heresies. Instead, it suggests a way forward. Apocalyptic Witchcraft gives a compelling and profound account of the Sabbat and Wild Hunt as living experiences. These are the core of our ritual practice. Dream, lunar and, critically, menstrual magic are explored as a path to this knowledge. The wolf, the devil, and the goddess of witchcraft are then encountered in a landscape that ultimately reveals the witch to her or himself. These are not separate threads, but arise from a deep mythic structure and are woven together into a single unifying vision. Alternating between polemic, poetic and ecstatic prose, an harmonious course is revealed in a sequence of elegant stratagems. The book is threaded together with a cycle of hymns to Inanna, pearls on the tapestry of night. Seemingly disparate aspects are joined into a vision which is neither afraid of blessing nor curse. This is a daring undertaking, born from both urgency and need. It offers a renewed sense of purpose and meaning for a witchcraft that has seen many of its treasured ideas about itself destroyed. An apocalyptic age demands an apocalyptic witchcraft, and this is a book which is offered up to revolutionise the body of the craft, a way out of the dark impasse. Tradition is not static, it flows, and this work pours forth a vision for the future. Founded in pilgrimage and ritual, encountered in dreams and gleaned from the conversations of both doves and crows, a remarkable narrative unfolds. Its wings span from prehistory, through the witch panic and it emerges fully fledged into our present moment of crisis. It offers a witchcraft for our time.
