Abraxas, a new occult journal

By | August 18, 2009 | Print This Post | E-mail This Post | 4 Comments

Abraxas, Issue 1Fulgur and Treadwell‘s are jointly launching a new occult journal, Abraxas, billed as “a new independent journal of historical and contemporary occultism”.

There will be two editions, a deluxe issue of 171 numbered copies which will include an original hand-printed wood engraving by Francesco Parisi, and a standard editions containing a letter-press printed Manifesto. (The standard edition cover is pictured on the left.)

As the journal will be printed by Fulgur I expect it will be gorgeous but, of course, they’re not cheap. The deluxe edition will sell for £70, and the standard for £25.

From the description at

Abraxas will offer the reader a rich resource of thought-provoking essays, vibrant art and poetic myth from some of the most inspirational thinkers, artists, writers, designers and practitioners working in the international occult community today. Here will be found perceptive articles, narratives of workings, mysterious photography, obscure magical text reprints, strange drawings and resonant lyric. Abraxas aims to be intellectually engaging, critically rigorous and visually inspiring. It will be a unique space where fresh insights emerge to feed the mind, imagination and soul.

The first issue includes contributions from Phil Hine, Stephen Grasso, John Callow amongst others and its official release date is September 22nd, though it may ship as late as mid-October.

Alas, I’ll be in London September 11th-13th – a week too early, though I certainly intend to visit Treadwell’s anyway, I won’t be able to pick up the journal.

Fulgur’s website indicates that this first printing will be their only printing, so get ‘em while you can. If you can afford to.

    This look interesting, but I think they’re using a flawed informational model. Exclusive, high $ novelty isn’t my idea of how the occult should be approached or practiced, IMO.

    Nonetheless, cheers for the heads-up!

    Everything Fulgur produces is expensive, but it’s also usually worth it. Fantastic paper, print, design, and great content.

    It’s extremely likely I’ll end up shelling out for this, as I have most of their titles in the past few years. Though I don’t expect that shipping will be included in the price, as it is with most periodicals.

    I must say though, as much as price can intimidate and frustrate, there is definitely something to paying more for something beautifully produced, and I fully expect Abraxas to be awesome.

    Hey Nico, hope all goes well with you. I’m interested to know your thoughts on Abraxas if you’ve had the opportunity to look at it now. As I think the editors mentioned (of which I am one), the production values are determinedly top quality, to do justice to the art.

    Your review and comments will be very welcome!
