Floating somewhere between science and philosophy, alchemy is experiencing a revival in interest, spurred in part by the striking realization that particle physics and quantum mechanics are chasing the very questions of fabric, form and chaos that lie at the heart of alchemy. Drawing on original material from Arabic and Kabalistic sources, and peppered with 160 illustrations, this compendium of alchemical thought features more than 500 entries on every aspect of the alchemist's experience, from terminology to materials and procedures, historical alchemists to the arcane texts of antiquity.

About the Author:

Diana Fernando's interest in alchemy started in her childhood in the Welsh Marches and the Wye Valley, among the menhirs and standing stones. Study of Chaucer and Shakespeare at school then inspired her to research the occult background of the Renaissance. Long years of training and esoteric study followed, when she met twentieth century philosophers and practising alchemists around the world, often visiting them in their homelands. Taking a year off from teaching, she obtained a degree in traditional typographical design and printing.
