About this book

A lavish book containing reproductions of artworks representing a variety of esoteric and occult subjects. From the beginning of human creativity itself, image-makers have been drawn to these unknown spheres and have created curious artworks that transcend time and place – but what is it that attracts artists to these magical realms? To accompanying the art, S. Elizabeth has written an informative introduction and twelve thematic chapters grouped under three categories: The Cosmos, Higher Beings, and Practitioners. Featuring artworks from classic artists such as Goya and Dürer, the Pre-Raphaelites, and modern abstract artists such as Mondrian and Kandinsky, as well as Surrealists and more contemporary artists.
