Crowleymass at The Atlantis Bookshop 2013

“Crowleymass on SUNDAY
1st December this year!

2-5pm at The Atlantis Bookshop

As you will all know, we rarely open our doors on a Sunday but this December will be different. For one day only, on the First of December, we will be opening The Atlantis Bookshop to celebrate Crowleymass, in commemoration of the passing of Aleister Crowley in 1947, one of our best-known and arguably most-misunderstood customers.

Part of the celebration will include the launch of “Aleister Crowley Wandering the Waste” — The Exhibition. The author and artist will both be present to deliver a short talk prior to the gallery opening and all the original artwork from the popular graphic novel will be for sale.

If you are able to attend, we’d love to see you there. Please just email to confirm your intention to attend, that we might ensure sufficient drinks and nibbles are provided. We look forward to seeing you for Crowleymass!” [ via email]

Aleister Crowley: Wandering the Waste

Aleister Crowley: Wandering the Waste by Martin Hayes, illustrated by R H Stewart, is a new graphic novel which may be of interest. Richard Kaczynski provides an foreword to this book.

Martin Hayes and R H Stewart's Aleister Crowley: Wandering the Waste

“‘… deftly weaves together the spiritual and the mundane, truth and rumour, into what is ultimately a human story about one of the most ambitious people ever to live … a work to savour and return to.’ — from the foreword by Richard Kaczynski author of Perdurabo: The Life of Aleister Crowley.

Know then the life and times of England’s most infamous son. Occultist, artist, poet, prophet, record-setting mountaineer, drug and free-love pioneer, spy, scholar, and legendary bad-egg. Summoner of demons and loser of friends. An explorer of many realms who conversed with gods and angels but ended his days labelled ‘The Wickedest Man in the World.’ Aleister Crowley. A foolish genius. A much maligned history. A wanderer of the waste.”
