Abraxas is a new independent journal of historical and contemporary occultism. Through its pages will be manifest the voices of working occult experience and the visions of esoteric artists, alongside keen insights of original scholarly research. Abraxas will offer the reader a rich resource of thought-provoking essays, vibrant art and poetic myth from some of the most inspirational thinkers, artists, writers, designers and practitioners working in the international occult community today. Here will be found perceptive articles, narratives of workings, mysterious photography, obscure magical text reprints, strange drawings and resonant lyric. Abraxas aims to be intellectually engaging, critically rigorous and visually inspiring. It will be a unique space where fresh insights emerge to feed the mind, imagination and soul.
A joint venture between Treadwell’s and Fulgur, Abraxas is presented in a quality and format that reflects the high standard of the contributors and editors. Over nearly two decades the publishers Fulgur Limited have established a reputation for high quality book production within the esoteric genre. They also have a proven record in fostering the fine and visual arts: from established figures such as Austin Osman Spare, Michael Bertiaux and Steffi Grant, to gifted younger occult artists such as Andrew Chumbley, Orryelle Defenestrate-Bascule and Barry William Hale. For its part Treadwell’s Bookshop has quickly become the most social of all London venues. Its panoply of lectures, events and book launches have made it widely known as a gathering place for lucid and lateral-thinking scholars on esoteric subjects. The best resources of both enterprises are therefore brought together in this stimulating new collaboration.
The first issue will be launched in September 2009. Further details, including future contributors and collaborators, pricing and availability, will be issued here in due course.
