The Astral Geographic: The Watkins Guide to the Occult World, with Andy Sharp – LIVE
Access the occult as you’ve never seen it before! A history of magic framed as a travel guide featuring 10 mystical tours through history and across the globe. Honouring the guidebook format with a nod to the Shell Guides with collage artworks, retro inspired postcard imagery and route maps, the book is also interspersed with places to stay, eat or drink.
The Astral Geographic is an occult travel guide spanning countries and continents. Expand your occult horizons by hiking across the Algerian desert in the footsteps of the magicians Aleister Crowley and Victor Neuburg, invoking angels and meeting the terrifying demon Choronzon. Visit the temples of Hekate and Circe in Turkey and Italy, the Spanish sites of the Inquisition’s witch-hunts, and the haunts of the Norse sorceresses. After completing the journeys, the book offers the unique Grimorium Terra, a meditational and ritual tool that invites the reader to develop their own creative approach to magical practice using geography as a vital ingredient.
