Summary of the week ending Jul 20th, 2013

Here’s a summary of activity for the week ending July 20th, 2013.



The Unicursal SEX IS THE SACRED SONG OF THE SOUL Poster is another piece of helpful propaganda from the Ministry of Information, a take on the original trilogy of British posters from WWII. There’s downloadable wallpapers of each, and links to t-shirts and posters for several designs as well.


The deadline for submissions to Magick, Music and Ritual 8 has passed and I’m working on getting this ready for release at the beginning of Aug, around astronomical Lughnasadh. While you’re waiting for that head on over to the Anthology Project pages or the library’s Bandcamp site and check out all the previous releases in the series.


In addition to the Hermetic Library itself, do consider checking out the many ways you can participate in the work of the library, and ways you can 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 each new Hermetic Library Album and more!


You may also be interested in the other blogs in the Hrmtc Underground network, including Iconomancy, Pilgrimage to Far-Distant Countries, Thelema and the Libri of Aleister Crowley, and De Profundis.

Other things you may wish to gander at are the opportunity to help create shared wisdom about the materials collected at the library at the Hermeneuticon Wiki and the web hosting services offered by the Hermetic Library at Hermetic Hosting.
