Summary of the week ending May 18th, 2013

This last week I worked on various improvements to the Hermetic Library. I had conversations via email, social media and others with various people about the collections at the library. I posted and shared a variety of things via Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Google+, Iconomancy, Pilgrimage to Far-Distant Countries, Thelema and the Libri of Aleister Crowley, De Profundis, and elsewhere.

Here’s another new piece of helpful propaganda from the Ministry of Information, a take on the original trilogy of British posters from WWII. Go take a gander. There’s downloadable wallpapers of each, and links to t-shirts and posters for several designs as well.

Magick, Music and Ritual 7 was officially released this month, and is available for immediate digital download. This is the Anthology Project issue for Spring 2013 and offers 10 tracks with over an hour of music from both new and returning artists who incorporate or are inspired by the Western Esoteric Tradition. I finished posting about each track and artist this week, but head on over to the anthology pages or the library’s Bandcamp site and check out this new release and all the others previous.


There are many ways to participate in the work of the library, and ways to become a supporter. Becoming a supporter, with either a one-time or recurring donation, will help the library pay hosting costs necessary to stay online, expand the collection, and develop other projects such as perhaps an actual Reading Room. In addition to feeling good about helping the library, becoming a supporter means you will be included in things such as occasional unannounced Postal Potlatch mailings as well as other regular fun such as receiving gratis download codes for the new Spring 2013 Hermetic Library Album!
