Summary for the week ending June 14th, 2014

Here’s a summary of activity for the week ending June 14th, 2014.


Unicursal WINE WOMAN SONG poster

This Unicursal WINE WOMAN SONG Poster is another piece of helpful propaganda from the Ministry of Information, a take on the original trilogy of British posters from WWII combined with a quote from Aleister Crowley’s Liber DCCXI – Energized Enthusiasm, a Note on Theurgy, which could be said as “Dionysus, Apollo, Aphrodite” or perhaps even more contemporarily as “Sex, Drugs and Rock ‘n’ Roll”.


If you enjoy the Hermetic Library site, and any of the blogs, tumblogs and social media related to the library, then please consider supporting the Patreon campaign for the Hermetic Library. Of course, there are a variety of ways you can help support and participate at the library, but adding your voice as a Patron of the ongoing work and expansion of the library will be very much appreciated.


The call for submissions to Magick, Music and Ritual 10 has been posted with a deadline on August 15th, 2014. This will the the one and only Hermetic Library album released this year, so the time to get involved is now. Also, the best way to add anthology releases and this upcoming Hermetic Library album to your personal music collection is through the Patron campaign at Patreon.
