Summary for the week ending Jan 15, 2017

Here’s a summary of activity for the week ending January 15th, 2017.

A bunch of new subject matter in Forms and Fellows announced this week to check out, most of which I was working on for a while that went into production with the new site but a few completely new. There’s definitely a trade-off with the new site: there’s less craft and artistry to making pages, but that also means pages can be made a bit faster.

Two completely new Aleister Crowley books from the collected works are online: Oracles: The Biography of an Art and Alice: An Adultery. I also added Aleister Crowley’s essay Berashith: An Essay on Ontology. Most of the material contained in these resources was written in the curious period between Aleister Crowley’s first initiation into Golden Dawn, but before the Thelemic period that began with the 1905 reception of Liber AL. Lots of interesting things to check out there, including, to mention only one, Venus, a poem written in a temple of Crowley’s oft-forgotten Enochian-inspired pre-A∴A∴ order Lamp of the Invisible Light.
