Color Magick is a slightly revised edition of Raymond Buckland's 1983 book, Practical Color Magick. The only major changes seem to be better layout and much more professional interior art. I noticed no major changes or additions to the text. The new interior art is a major improvement over the original edition, however. The topic of this book, as the title indicates, is color-based energy manipulation in magick and healing.
This book takes a shotgun approach to color-based magick with eight chapters on a wide range of subjects. The only real link is the use of color. The first chapter talks about using color in meditation. The second chapter provides color-based exercises designed to improve one's ESP and other psychic abilities. The next chapter discusses the use of color in divination. Color magick itself is discussed in the fourth and fifth chapters. The fourth chapter covers basic spells while the fifth chapter goes into "advanced" concepts like poppets and talismans. The next two chapters talk about the use of colors in healing, briefly covering using color with a number of different healing methods. The last chapter provides information on using colors in everyday life and to achieve your dreams.
Color Magick is a very basic book on using color in magick and related activities. If one knows nothing at all about magick or healing, this book would be a fine basic introduction. Unless one has a very specific interest in color magick, however, the limited scope of this book may prove frustrating. For more advanced students -- in this case, anyone who has read a good introduction to magick -- this book does not offer much likely to be new or really useful.
