(Here is the text of the announcement from when Modern Magick first appeared)
“WHERE DO I START?”
Many people don’t study magick because the books on magick are so disjointed. People wonder where they should start—With a ritual? With the Kabalah? With talismans?
Llewellyn Worldwide is proud to answer that question by offering MODERN MAGICK, a complete, step-by-step course in magick! This is the book to study before you get into The Golden Dawn, Aurum Solis or Crowley. This is the perfect guidebook for lodges all over the world, and for individuals who want to change their lives!
The most popular step-by-step book on real magick ever published!
Magick is a science and art that anyone can learn.
But the sad fact is that very few people have ever spent the time to really learn this art and science.
Over two decades years ago, Donald Michael Kraig began to teach classes on magick in Southern California. He quickly learned that there was no single, step-by-step textbook for learning the subject. So over the next decade he created a book based on his personal research, the experiences of his many students and information from thousands of books on mystical topics. The result may be one of the most important spiritual books for the New Age…
