Magick, Music and Ritual 14 cover artwork

The cover for this 2018 issue includes the work “Babalon” by Luciana Lupe Vasconcelos, for this current year count Anno Viv, which can be represented by, and thus can be seen as having correspondence to, a combination of both Atu V, the Hierophant, and Atu IV, the Emperor. For me this cover is a compelling image that reflects key themes related to the library, including those of ritual, worship, eucharist, and, of course, Babalon.

There’s also an alternate cover, included in the digital download. This alternate cover includes “The Beast of Great Desire” by Luciana Lupe Vasconcelos. I have thoughts that include Goetic entities and Assyrian lamassu arise from this visual.

Luciana Lupe Vasconcelos, or just Lupe, is a Brazilian artist and illustrator born in the middle-western town of Goiânia in 1982. Drawing compulsively since early childhood, she developed through time and practice a strong sensibility for linework. Mysterious, fluid and dark, her art plunges on the realms of the mythical, mystical and occult. Ink is her medium par excellence, but she doesn’t shy away from other materials, notedly tempera gouache and acrylics. Her visual influences include ancient art from various cultures, medieval art, painters from the renaissance and baroque, symbolism, illustrators from the Golden Age, surrealism and the US east coast art scene from the mid 20th century, particularly the circle of Marjorie Cameron and Wallace Berman. She currently resides in the mountain town of Teresopolis.

The Hermetic Library at Hermetic.com has an overall vision of Archiving, Engaging and Encouraging the living Western Esoteric Tradition. I started the benefit anthology project to help promote newer works in the Western Esoteric Tradition to the audience of the Hermetic Library and beyond. The anthology project also further raises awareness about the corpus and culture of magick and ritual. The site itself was started in 1996 and has ever since consistently been an extremely popular resource for students and researchers interested in the Western Esoteric Tradition. I encourage you to check out Hermetic Library and everything in the collection there, if you aren’t already familiar with it, as that’s the reason this project exists and may also offer inspiration to you.
