Thought Forms: A Record of Clairvoyant Investigation by Annie Besant and C.W. Leadbeater / ISBN 9780999609996 / published by Sacred Bones

A wonderful hardcover reprint of a strange illustrated book which inspired countless artists. Highly recommended.


First published in 1901, Thought-Forms was an in-depth exploration on the visual manifestations of thoughts and the notion that they exist as objects. Conceived by renowned theosophists Annie Besant and C.W. Leadbeater, the book consists of 58 illustrations based on Besant and Leadbeater’s clairvoyant observations on how music, emotions, experiences, and colors affect thought forms. Expanding beyond its original readership, the book would have great influence on twentieth-century art and go on to inspire many artists including Wassily Kandinsky, Hilma af Klint, Piet Mondrian, and Paul Klee. This updated edition features a new introduction by famed occult author, Mitch Horowitz.
