Notes:

Booklet to accompany an exhibition at Tate St Ives from 10th October 2009 to 10th January 2010. The exhibition took its name from a novel by St Ives artist Sven Berlin. This excellent booklet amounts to an intriguing essay on the magical elements and influences in British modern art. It features works by a wide range of artists, from 'usual suspects' like Ithell Colquhoun and Derek Jarman to stunning surprises like Bryan Winter and Michael Ayrton.

From the library of Paul Newman, author of The Tregerthen Horror: Aleister Crowley, DH Lawrence & Peter Warlock in Cornwall (Museum Library id. no. 133.4092 CRO NEW 4431).
