About The Event

British artist Jamie Reid (1947- 2023) created the Sex Pistols album cover,  'the single most iconic image of the punk era' but he is hailed for his breadth: pre-punk, Situationist-inspired agit-prop.  Though few know it, his later years were focussed on making druidry-inspired pieces dedicated to the the seasonal year.  Reid observed the eight pagan festival dates, holding rituals at his allotment in Liverpool. Druidry ran in the family: his great uncle was the famous druid chief George Watson MacGregor Reid, who 'put Druidry at the heart of the Stonehenge summer solstice'.  

We celebrate the new book of Reid's art: Time for Magic: A Shamanarchist's Guide to the Wheel of the Year  by Stephen Ellcock, John Marchant and Philip Carr-Gomm . A full-colour survey volume, it features key Wheel of the Year artworks as well as famous earlier pieces, including the pre-punk, Situationist-inspired agit-prop and, of course the work he produced for the Sex Pistols.  The elegant hardback from Watkins Publishing offers 216 full-colour pages of art, memorabilia, reminiscences and analysis. RRP £26.99.
