Hermetic Studies series
This series was conceived in 1997 as a complement to the Magnum Opus sourceworks. Hermetic Studies is a means for publishing recent works of commentary, research and bibliography on the various facets of hermeticism, especially focussing on alchemy.
In 1999 it was possible to purchase a colour printer and this allowed the production of books with coloured illustrations. Four of the recent publications in this series provide coloured versions of well known alchemical sequences.
These books are issued as limited editions of 300 signed and numbered copies, bound by Adam McLean at his workshop in Glasgow, in a style similar to the Magnum Opus series.
