Many of the occult images, sigils, diagrams, drawings and paintings were reproduced in. Which was published by Three Hands Press. It also has many other important artefacts associated with witchcraft and magick, including unique artefacts owned by Aleister Crowley, Gerald Gardner, Stewart Farrar as well as items associated with the Golden Dawn, and many other fascinating artefacts.
