Pagan Eye: Aleister Crowley's Hat and Pipe

Here is a photo of Aleister Crowley's hat and pipe on display last night at Crowleymass at The Atlantis Bookshop in London. The annual party is a celebration of the life and times of the bookshop's most notorious customer, Mr Crowley. He is reputed to have used the pipe to smoke opium. Other items on display included pictures by him and menu cards in his handwriting.

The Austin Osman Spare exhibition, which starts today at The Atlantis Bookshop, also contains a picture of Mr Crowley by Mr Spare. Everyone who went to Crowleymass got a little preview of the exhibition and it is well worth visiting.

The Atlantis Bookshop is at 49A Museum St, London WC1A 1LY. For more details and to reserve a place email or call 020 7405 2120.

On each Pagan Eye post, I show a photo that I find interesting, with a few words about it. I'm not quite sure what I'll be including - it could be a seasonal image, a pagan site, an event, or just a pretty picture.

If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself and you must confirm that you are submitting it for A Bad Witch's Blog.
