Today Is The Birthday Of Carl Llewellyn Weschcke
Today is the birthday of Carl Llewellyn Weschcke.
Without him your metaphysical bookshelf would be very bare.
Take a minute and say a thank you.
Llewellyn Publishing was originally started in 1901 by Welsh Astrologer Llewellyn George who published astrological handbooks. The first Llewellyn Moon Signs book was popular with the public (and not just astrologers) and Llewellyn Publications began expanding and publishing more and more on occult subjects.
Llewellyn George died in 1954 and Carl L. Weschcke bought the business in 1961. Since then it has continued to grow, expanding into many realms of alternative healing, religion and philosophy. Carl Weschcke is an elder and former high priest of the American Celtic Tradition of Witchcraft. He has been a long time supporter of the pagan movement, pagan festivals and pagan publishing. His son holds a masters degree in publishing, works for the company and hopefully Llewellyn Worldwide (as it is now known) will continue to publish alternative information for many many years.
Thank you Carl and Happy Birthday.
