First published in Detroit in 1919, the legendary Blue Equinox was Crowley's first attempt to publicize the principles and aims of the magical secret society Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.) and its allied order the A.'.A.'. In it, Crowley laid out the esoteric, social, ethical, and philosophical ideas that he believed provided the framework for a new ethics and the liberated morality of the future. Upon publication, the book was threatened with suppression by the authorities of the day. Many of the papers in the Blue Equinox anticipated social liberties we tend to take for granted today.

For generations, secret Craft teachings had been handed down by word of mouth to new initiates. When Lady Sheba was initiated into her first coven, she hand copied The Book of Shadows.

The German paparazzo Walter Fischer lived and worked in California in the late 1950s and 1960s. During this period, he documented the glamour, and, yes, the weirdness of the time and place for a multitude of international magazines. Of the great number of photos he is known for, the private images of Church of Satan founder Anton Szandor LaVey and movie star Jayne Mansfield, separately and together, are the most sought after. He was also privy to, and photographed, many of the events inside LaVey's "Black House” in San Francisco. This new book from Edda contains many unpublished images, and presents the time, place, and person in a unique way. The Church of Satan had just been born, and it was being sought out by large numbers. To further convey the ambience of this unusual occurrence, Kenneth Anger, Carl Abrahamsson and Alf Wahlgren have provide additional texts illuminating further the extraordinary photographs within.
