Subtitled Essential Practices and Making Art As Alchemy, this is a reader-friendly guide to alchemy, written in simple and accessible language. The book, while aimed at beginners, does not dumb down the breadth and depth of this ancient art: key concepts are explored, from fundamental cosmology and essential practices to the stages of the alchemical process. Chapters also touch on supplementary but important topics, such as The Emerald Tablet and alchemical iconography, providing points of departure for readers to explore this more advanced material in their own time. This book is highly recommended for anyone interested in alchemy, but who do not know where to begin. 


London: Watkins, 2023. Hardcover, 120 pages. New.
