Fine Esoteric Books and Images
Thursday, November 7, 2013
Three Hands Press is delighted to announce two new names to our family of authors and artists. We welcome new author Gemma Gary, whose work on folk magic and witchcraft will be known to some of our readership. Gemma has contributed a new book to our Three Hands Press Occult Monographs. Wisht Waters, number 5 in the series, examines the body of magic, lore, and belief attached to the holy wells of the British Isles. She is also writing a longer stand-alone volume for release in 2014. A profuse illustrator, we are doubly blessed to have Gemma's artwork appear in these volumes. More of Gemma's work can be found at Troy Books.
Three Hands has also signed the artist Raven Ebner, whose Surreal Macabre images have appeared in a number of high-profile contexts, and may be found at her website deathvine.com. Raven's art will be showcased in a forthcoming book treating certain disturbing themes of witchcraft, also slated for publication in 2014. Selected works have also been featured in the occult journal Clavis Volume 2, and will be exhibited at that book's official book launch in Los Angeles, November 16. Congratulations and warm greetings to Raven, we look forward to working with you!

The deluxe and special editions of this title are currently at the bindery, to ship in mid to late November.

Congratulations, Peter and Carolyn, for contributing with another potent and beautiful magical treatise to our literary catalogue.

We extend thanks to all in our community who turned out for the official book launch for Joseph Uccello's OCCLITH 0: Omniform last night. We were thrilled to have such a splendid crowd, and wish Joseph every success with his book. In the arcane traditions of the alchemist Paracelsus, the Aqua Angelis provided a celebratory tincture for elevating the event, and the book reading and signing was a delight. Three Hands Press extends a special thanks to Patricia Cram, Alan Sable, Kaitlin Reeves, and the good people of the Legionnaire Saloon for bringing their own impeccable brands of finesse to this event. Future events are in the planning stages, to be announced soon on this website.
