SIRIUS LIMITED ESOTERICA presents Hoodoo Pilot, a hardcover volume in 2 editions collecting 16 esoteric essays and 31 magical works of art by Gnostic writer and artist, Kyle Fite. With an Introduction by Michael Staley, Hoodoo Pilot covers a wide range of topics, including Freemasonry, Buddhism, the Typhonian Tradition of Kenneth Grant, the Voudon-Gnostic Tradition of Michael Bertiaux, the mystical artwork, philosophy and sorcery of Austin Osman Spare, and the work of William Blake. These themes and more are woven together in this limited edition collection.

In ‘Genius of the Fern loved Gully,’ the first in-depth biographical study of Colquhoun and her work, Amy Hale examines the magical and cultural confluences that shaped her imaginative life and artistic vision.

Michael Staley has announced the recent death of Steffi Grant. She passed away at a hospital in north-west London on 6th October after a short illness. It was agreed with her family not to announce her death until after the funeral, which took place yesterday afternoon. A highly-skilled artist whose work was integral to Kenneth Grant’s Typhonian Trilogies, she was also an extremely good writer, as attested by her enthralling Introduction to ‘Zos Speaks!’ as well as several essays of hers throughout the Carfax Monographs.
Her name has largely slipped through the gaps of art history, and those who do know her work may associate her primarily with magic and the occult – but, with the acquisition of a huge archive, Tate is hoping that the artist Ithell Colquhoun will finally get the credit and recognition she deserves as a major figure in British surrealism.
Tate has announced that more than 5,000 sketches, drawings, and commercial artworks by Colquhoun have been transferred to it by the National Trust.
The first in-depth biographical study of the British surrealist and occultist Ithell Colquhoun. This book offers the first in-depth biographical study of the British surrealist and occultist Ithell Colquhoun, situating her art within the magical contexts that shaped her imaginative life and work. After decades of neglect, Colquhoun’s unique vision and hermetic life have become an object of great renewed interest, both for artists and for historians of magic.
