Even more than Yeats, or Regardie, or Crowley or indeed anybody from the occult firmament – I have been influenced by Ithell Colquhoun. To reflect this admiration I have decided to adopt her title of “Magician born of nature” which seems to perfectly encapsulate the posthuman condition.
The Ithell Colquhoun FB group has been running for a while now. Ithell events and exhibitions still crop up regularly, and Fulgar recently reissued Ithell’s Taro as Colour. Last couple of years there has been a flurry of interest in Ithell’s “Celtic travel” books amongst the UK literati.
I explore and hopefully explain Ithell inspired “psychomorphological magick” in my esoteric autobiography vol two Hypermodern Magick/ Khemetic Enochian Chess which is illustrated by bits and bobs from my Ithell collection (similarly in volume three WBY).
Sorry for long delay in moving from Lulu (too expensive) to Amazon (too big to ignore). ANNOUNCEMENT – There will be kindle and paperback reprint of the 2007 edition, also a new volume of Ithell material acquired since The Magical Writings of Ithell Colquhoun, 2007. These largely comprise handwritten pages of Ithell’s notes about WB Yeats, touching upon some political topics that have been trending about WBY recently. The reprint and hopefully both volumes will be soon(ish) so think hard before paying £265 for the old lulu edition (pictured above).
I hope the new publication will be a welcome edition to her considerable cannon of work. Will post details on the FB group and this blog – YOU CAN NOW SIGN UP FOR THESE POSTS
