Ithell Colquhoun (1906 - 1988) was an important surrealist painter, writer and occultist. The author has used newly available archival material, personal papers and recently re-discovered art works to produce the first comprehensive analysis of her art and magic. The book also contains a detailed catalogue of her art works, an annotated bibliography of her writings, a full exhibition history and is illustrated with photographs of many little known paintings and drawings. This revised and greatly expanded second edition is an important source of information and reference for anyone wishing to know more about Colquhoun and her place in the history of art and the Western occult tradition. ix + 458pp.
