Summary for the week ending July 26th, 2014

Here’s a summary of activity for the week ending July 26th, 2014.


Unicursal THE MAGIC IS STILL Poster

This Unicursal THE MAGIC IS STILL 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 “The Opium Smoker” in Equinox Vol I No ii.


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 not only be very much appreciated.


There are only a couple of weeks left for submissions to Magick, Music and Ritual 10 before the 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.

I also have announced a call for proposals for artwork and design for the 2014 anthology album, so consider either getting in touch or letting others know, who may be interested in that opportunity.

If you’d like to get a gratis code for Magick, Music and Ritual 10 when it releases, and another gratis download code immediately for any other released anthology, then consider becoming a Patron of the library now, before the anthology is released. That’s two albums of music this year if you act now. If you wait, then you would only get one gratis download code, not both!
