Letters from Cythera traces Jaz’s various metaphysical and philosophical ideas and influences encompassing composing, singing, conducting, geomancy, architecture, occult history and Hermetic systems. A must read for students of the Occult. 

Final copies in print of this limited run, beautifully bound and fully illustrated book available in paperback for the first (and now last) time.

Letters From Cythera was written between years 2007 - 2008 in the South Pacific and outlines how the occult sciences shaped Jaz Coleman's philosophical outlook expounding on his preferred system for a personalized renaissance (the super synthesis), which consists of completing 13 separate projects or masterpieces over a five to six year period.

"In the following book I document my endeavors in tackling this epic undertaking. In short, it is the antithesis of a conventional rock biography."

Thus Letters from Cythera is the first of two books giving a detailed account of his hidden history and involvement with Hermetics, Earth Sciences and the Rosicrucian tradition noting the various Kabalistic innovations that have evolved over the last 33 years (and perhaps more significantly how they have influenced his work with both Killing Joke and Orchestra).

Letters from Cythera also covers the principles of self-education, symbolism, quantum mechanics, numerology and of course his ongoing obsession with the image of a hidden island at the ends of the earth.
