Art in the age of artifice

As a magician and sleight-of-hand artist, I've been wrestling with the thorny and slippery notion of Art for a long time. A recent "magical project" rekindled my attention about this ongoing quest. Here follow my latest musings on this domain. What is Art? Art can be seen as the lifeblood running through the veins of human history. From prelinguistic cave dweller to postmodern city dweller, art stands as a witness to the evolution of every culture, reflecting and participating in our views of re...

Forcing indexing to skip a block of text?

Hi folks, Sorry to be back so soon with another indexing question, should be the last one (for a while at least!) Whilst nosing about in Sigils code view I noticed there is a class called "sigil_index_marker" used to flag index entries from within the epub content. Does the opposite exist i.e. a class that can be applied to a block of text, maybe with a or similar to tell the indexing tool to skip the marked block when looking for text from the index editor?

The Sign and the Symbol, the Signal of the Sigil — Rudolf Koch’s Book of Signs

Strategic Magic, Designed Mysticism, Metamagical Thematics. It’s been said that illustration, the real meaning of the word is a shining — to illustrate is “making bright.” But also — to purify. The image above, a sigil of the Heptameron Arbatel, Peter de Abano, 1575. In a manner, thinking about illustration as a craft of communication suggests change, a new, evolved formation, a transformation. The idea, by process, becomes purified. Extending that thinking, alchemy comes to mind — a metaphor o...
