AOS Images and Oracles - final few copies
For anyone interested, we are down to our last 30 copies of Kenneth Grant's classic work Images and Oracles of Austin Osman Spare.
Needless to say, when they are gone, they are GONE, as we do not reprint our titles. Anyone who hasn't already secured one at £19.50 a pop might want to think about doing so!

Wow. I'm very thankful to have a copy of this book and it is a wonderful production. Lots of great images from Spare's sketchbooks and, of course, text by Mr. Grant. Rather "essential" for anyone interested in either figure.
i love it too
the pairing of red and black text on the white pages is really beautiful
not to forget the line drawings are amazing.
what i really like is even though it is in black and white, the scans of Zos pastels (my favourite 🙂 ) like man is a bundle of ids and cthulhu cultus while lacking colour have far more detail than the versions in Zos speaks! I dont know why, but its nice to see the linework better.
i highly recommend it!
Grants exposition on Zos' metaphysical beliefs is very insightful and detailed too. It gives out more nuggets of wisdom at each reading.
