It is a tale of lost treasure, it is a tale of a lost - or rather forgotten - artist, a mystic, a cockney visionary.
•Curator Jonathan Allen comes to the Bureau to tell of AUSTIN OSMAN SPARE and the strange and wonderful Tarot Deck that lay for decades in the archives of The Magic Circle, undisturbed and forgotten.
•Now a growing influence on artists, writer and chaos magick practitioners including Alan Moore and Jimmy Page, Spare became largely unnoticed in his lifetime.
•We hear of his curious, occult life in South London, his riches to rags story, cartomancy, divination and the discovery that may just change his future.
•And we hear of the efforts to bring that future into the present through a campaign by Strange Attractor Press that will make Spare's extraordinary visionary Tarot available for mystics, art lovers, collectors and the curious..
