THE ZOËTIC GRIMOIRE OF ZOS


The Formulae of Zos vel Thanatos


By

Austin Osman Spare

 

 

Austin Osman Spare (December 30, 1886 - May 15, 1956) was an English artist and magician.


He was the son of a London policeman. As a child, he showed an affinity for art, and he briefly attended an art school. At the age of 13, he left school to become an apprentice to a stained glass maker. During his teen years, his fascination for the occult grew apace, heavily influencing the work he produced. In May 1904 one of his drawings was exhibited at the annual Royal Academy exhibition in London, generating a storm of publicity for the young artist.
