The Magical Art of Rosaleen Norton and Austin Osman Spare
A richly-illustrated study of the two pre-eminent twentieth century artist-magicians, Rosaleen Norton and Austin Osman Spare, by Nevill Drury (author of “Pan’s Daughter” and numerous studies of Western magical traditions). Drury gives a biographical overview and analysis of the occult symbolism and approaches of both artists; in his introduction the author recounts the importance of Norton and Spare in influencing his own interest and later exploration of both the Occult and Art. A well-produced volume, with numerous examples of the artists’ work and contemporary photographs.
