From the Teitan Press:

A Book of Sketches by Aleister Crowley

Introduction by Keith Richmond and David Tibet.  The Teitan Press, 2013. York Beach, Maine USA

First Edition.  Hardcover. Landscape format 8vo. xii + [45 plates each printed on rectos only]. Fine black cloth spine with gilt lettering, charcoal papered boards with gilt title and facsimile Crowley signature, full colour plates, charcoal end pages. Edition limited to 418 hand numbered copies. For the launch week only copies come with a special bookplate signed by David Tibet and Keith Richmond.

Reproduces in full a series of colour and black and white sketches, mostly of women, from a sketchbook utilised by Aleister Crowley from the late 1930s to the early 1940s, and now preserved in the Yorke collection.  While the 45 plates include a number of finished drawings, most are unpolished designs, possibly “roughs” for later more detailed compositions.

Although hardly examples of “high art,” they offer a fascinating glimpse of Crowley’s process of imagining his art, and the varied styles with which he experimented ( some images can be viewed at http://teitanpress.com/).

With a five page Introduction by Crowley art aficionados David Tibet and Keith Richmond. NEW book. Fine condition.
