Jacket design by Steffi Grant. ¶ "A compilation of Aleister Crowley's diaries during a crucial period of his life, which include meticulous records of his magical workings, travels, and spiritual experiences. An intimate look into his practices, beliefs, and the development of his religious system known as Thelema. The years covered in these diaries were significant for Crowley. They encompass World War I, his travels to America, and the time he spent in Sicily at the Abbey of Thelema. The diaries detail his magical workings, including rituals, invocations, and the results thereof. They also provide insights into his interpretations of various mystical and religious systems, his relationships with other occultists, and his ever-evolving philosophy. The diaries are a treasure trove for those interested in occult history, magical practices, and Crowley's own complex and often controversial life." ¶  Magic Magie. illusion (performing art) Magic.
