Punk and Punk Adjacent.

Punk and Punk Adjacent.

The punk scene emerged in the early/mid-1970s as a rebellious and DIY movement in the music and cultural landscape. Its lasting importance can be [simplistically] summarized under some broad catagories: Countercultural Rebellion; Social and Political Commentary; Influence on Fashion and Aesthetics; Community Building; DIY Ethos and Grassroots Movement; Musical Innovation and Diverse Subgenres...

The punk scene has left a lasting cultural legacy, influencing subsequent generations of musicians, artists, and activists. Its impact can be seen in the evolution of alternative and indie music, as well as in the continued relevance of punk's rebellious spirit in various countercultural movements.

Dan Kelm: Single Artist Catalogue

On rare occasions, a remarkable collection of work appears at once… We are very pleased to be working with Dan Kelm to bring his personal copies of his books (and a handful of association copies of others) to market. To our knowledge, this amount of Dan’s work has never come to market at once and much of this work has been sold out and/or unavailable for a very long while.   

Crowley and Friends

Aleister Crowley [1875-1947], British occultist, mystic, and ceremonial magician…and mountaineer… played a significant role in the development of modern esoteric thought and magical philosophies. He was a highly controversial and flamboyant figure, renowned for his unconventional lifestyle, controversial writings, and alleged involvement in various magical practices.  Crowley's impact on occultism and esoteric philosophy endures, with his ideas continuing to influence various spiritual and artistic movements.
