In addition to the books that we list on our site we also issue regular 'on-line' catalogs that allow us to showcase particular collections or subjects. A new catalogue posts every third week on Thursdays at Noon EST (Boston time), except as otherwise posted in "News and Notes" below.  To view the most recent of these catalogs click on the 'Current catalog' button to the left.

We are delighted that Sonia Bible's new documentary on Rosaleen Norton "The Witch of Kings Cross" is now available on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and Vimeo.   It includes a number of familiar faces including our own Keith Richmond who has had a decades-long interest in Norton, appears briefly in the film, and provided many of the images of Norton's artwork which appear in it. Keith has been working on a comprehensive biography of Norton for many years, was a close friend of Norton's original publisher, Walter Glover, and also assembled most of the paintings, and wrote the catalogue, for the Sydney 2000 retrospective of Norton's work.  For our Teitan Press, Keith has edited a collection of her short stories: "Three Macabre Stories", another of her magical writings "Thorn in the Flesh" and a new edition of "The Art of Rosaleen Norton".  Check out our Teitan Press Rosaleen Norton offerings in "Featured Books" below --- 

 

The Solstice on December 21st 2020 marked the 15th anniversary of our purchase of Weiser Antiquarian Books from Donald Weiser.   We are most happy with how the company has grown and prospered under our ownership, particularly in 2020,  which was nothing if not an unusual year!  We realize that we would not be where we are without all of YOU!  So thank you for 15 magickal years!
