I am thrilled to finally be able to publicly announce the release of Witch:Ikon. I have spent the past several months editing this volume as one of a team of curators. From the Three Hands Press website:
Witch-Ikon: Witchcraft in Art and Artifact, a stunning collection of witchcraft imagery spanning five centuries is being launched by Three Hands Press. 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. Curated by Daniel A. Schulke, Madeleine LeDespencer, and Dolorosa de la Cruz, this full color museum-quality book also contains essays and texts on witchcraft imagery from authors such as Martin Duffy, Tom Allen, Michael Bertiaux, Lee Morgan, Daniel A. Schulke, and Jon Crabb. Several editions are being produced, including a trade paperbound, a standard hardcover, and deluxe leather volumes.
I am so delighted with the results and I cannot wait for it to be out in the wide world. I will be attending the book launch in October in Seattle. Perhaps some of you will be there and we can meet in person! The link to the Facebook event is below. I will be presenting a talk at the launch.
