Odin

Diana Paxson

“The accounts of Norse lore are lively and accessible introductions to the lay reader, and Paxson’s own beliefs, as well as those of her interviewees, shine through in her clear and lucid prose. Paxson’s book is charming and accessible, even to outsiders previously unfamiliar with the concepts.” – Publishers Weekly

“I recommend it highly.” —Ralph Metzner, Ph.D., author of The Well of Remembrance

Revered since the Viking Age, Odin is arguably one of the most enigmatic and complex characters in Norse mythology. He has been called the greatest of the gods—the god of words and wisdom, runes and magic, a trickster who teaches truth. This is the first book on Odin that is both historically sourced and accessible to a general audience.

The Book of Thoth

Aleister Crowley

“If any book in the world deserves to be enshrined in hardcover immortality it is Aleister Crowley’s magnum opus and magical time-capsule, The Book of Thoth. The Weiser facsimile edition is breathtakingly magnificent.” —Lon Milo DuQuette, author of Understanding Aleister Crowley’s Thoth Tarot

“This edition of The Book of Thoth, Crowley’s masterpiece on the Tarot, is as well-constructed and weighty as its subject matter, with full-color images as vivid as the original. It is an exceptional edition of a controversial and critical work in the history of modern Tarot that eloquently unravels the depths of this esoteric subject.” —Colin Campbell, author of Of the Arte Goetia, The Magic Seal of Dr. John Dee, and A Concordance to the Holy Books of Thelema

Aleister Crowley’s Book of Thoth endures as one of the most definitive volumes on the tarot ever written. This classic text describes the philosophy and use of his Thoth Tarot, the deck designed by Crowley and painted by Lady Frieda Harris. First published by Weiser Books in 1969, this edition of The Book of Thoth is a facsimile featuring remastered, full-color plates depicting eight of the original tarot card images.
