''Witch-Ikon: Witchcraft in Art and Artifact'' by Three Hand Press, October 2017




For those who enjoy this page, this might be of interest.  I am happy to announce a book project i have had the pleasure and honour of working on this year as one of the co editors has come to fruition. 
 ''Witch-Ikon: Witchcraft in Art and Artifact'' by Three Hand Press'  
'' a stunning collection of witchcraft imagery spanning five centuries. The book's purview ranges from folk depictions to demonology to fine art, through the fetishistic charms of folk-sorcery to the magical inspired imagery of modern occultism.'
Launch 27th October 2017

 It will be accompanied by  a special Art exhibition of Contemporary Witchcraft Imagery at Mortlake & Company Gallery in Seattle, opening this Friday October 5 - 6pm - 9pm, which will include some works by me and some artists that have been featured in the Cabinet too.  Link to event below

John Balance (Coil) ... Drawings from Bright Lights and Cats With No Mouths ~ The Art of John Balance Collected



The first ever extensive overview of art (drawings, paintings and sketches) created by John Balance.
The artworks featured in the book are both finished elaborate hallucinatory pieces as well as quick sketches with a good sprinkling of Balance’s often underestimated humour. 
Homages to idols and inspirations next to idiosyncratic magical dreamscapes
executed in a wide variety of styles and mediums


Compiled by Liam Thomas and Thighpaulsandra - with text by
Val Denham and Jeremy Reed.
