This book on magical methods was justifiably recommended by O.T.O. Frater Superior Hymenaeus Beta for the study of Thelemic occultists. Although many of the secrets concern pigments and paintings, the most important of them have to do with perception, imagination, and discipline, and will be useful in any art, including sorcery.

The economical Dover edition even retains the original color plates, moving them to the inside covers; and of course the book is full of wonderful black and white illustrations by the author.

Rare, important volume in which famed Surrealist expounds (in his inimitably eccentric fashion) on what painting should be, the history of painting, what is good and bad painting, the merits of specific artists, and more. Includes his 50 "secrets" for mastering the craft, including "the secret of the painter's pointed mustaches." Filled with sensible artistic advice, lively personal anecdotes, academic craftsmanship, and the artist's own marginal drawings ( )
