THe Book of Gates


THe Book of Gates: a Magical Translation

The Book of Gates is a rich and epic magical translation of a little-known Ancient Egyptian New Kingdom funerary text that contains a wealth of mystical and magical secrets.

Translated by Michael Sheppard, interpreted by Josephine McCarthy, and illustrated by Stuart Littlejohn, The Book of Gates offers the reader page after page of enigmatic puzzles, insights, and keys that reveal the timeless roots of alchemy, ritual, and magical vision.
