Overview

Prepare to be spellbound, as you take a trip through the magical and mysterious world of witches.

A story-telling staple in world culture for thousands of years, and today more popular than ever, witches have been feared and admired across the world. Often misunderstood, they have handed down the knowledge of their craft from generation to generation.

In this colourful and engaging portrait of these intriguing figures, every aspect of witches is examined — from the various types of witch, to the "tools" vital for magical success and the charms and spells they have developed over the centuries. Many of the most famous witches from history, mythology and fiction are studied in detail, with biographical notes on their talents, abilities and achievements.

Crammed full of fascinating facts and beautifully illustrated throughout, The Book of Witches is the ultimate reference for all matters bewitching, a must-have for everyone from Harry Potter and Narnia fans to devotees of folklore and legend.

Tim Dedopulos is a writer, editor and game designer. His recent books include The Encyclopedia of Fantasy (with Terry Pratchett and David Pringle), Kabbalah and The Book of Wizards.
