Luigi Serafini Codex Seraphinianus from Rizzoli

“An extraordinary and surreal art book, this edition has been redesigned by the author and includes new illustrations. Ever since the Codex Seraphinianus was first published in 1981, the book has been recognized as one of the strangest and most beautiful art books ever made. This visual encyclopedia of an unknown world written in an unknown language has fueled much debate over its meaning. Written for the information age and addressing the import of coding and decoding in genetics, literary criticism, and computer science, the Codex confused, fascinated, and enchanted a generation.

While its message may be unclear, its appeal is obvious: it is a most exquisite artifact. Blurring the distinction between art book and art object, this anniversary edition—redesigned by the author and featuring new illustrations—presents this unique work in a new, unparalleled light. With the advent of new media and forms of communication and continuous streams of information, the Codex is now more relevant and timely than ever. A special limited and numbered deluxe edition that includes a signed print is also available.” [via]

Enochian World of Aleister Crowley

You may be interested in the recently released 20th anniversary edition of Enochian World of Aleister Crowley which includes writing by Aleister Crowley (Liber LXXXIV vel Chanokh) and Lon Milo DuQuette, edited by David Cherubim.

“This is the 20th Anniversary edition of the book which contains new material by Lon Milo DuQuette!

This book gives the student immediate access to the world’s most powerful yet misunderstood system of Magick. Crowley’s work on the Enochian system was originally published in The Equinox, his 10-voulme[sic] journal of Scientific Illuminism. It was the launching pad for all that followed. Originally published in 1912, it rent the veil of the Inner Order of the Golden Dawn and revealed its most precious jewel for all to see. Lon Milo DuQuette is a recognized expert on Enochian Magick who brings four decades of practical experience in the field to show you how to start using this powerful system right now.

It is the aim of this book to offer in a practical format, Liber LXXXIV vel Chanokh, Crowley’s original presentation of basic Enochiana, and make it immediately useful for the student who wishes to make use of it now. This coupled with Israel Regardie’s fine Enochian Dictionary and pronunciation guide provides the reader with the minimum material necessary to get started. For the advanced student it offers practical instructions and the opportunity to re-evaluate the original information that the greatest magician of the 20th Century felt was most necessary to master first.”
