The British Book of
Spells and Charms

A Compilation of Traditional
Folk Magic

‘The British Book of Spells & Charms’ which explores the wealth of traditional spells and charms of Britain’s folk-magical tradition, including those for good fortune, love, the healing of people and animals, curses and their removal, and acts of magic contained within traditional folk songs.

In writing this book, Graham King has been ideally placed to draw upon examples and parallels within The Museum of Witchcraft’s collection and archives.

The text of ‘The British Book of Spells & Charms’ is complemented by numerous illustrations and photographs, drawing mainly from the museum’s fascinating collection of magical artefacts, and is Troy Books’ first title to be printed in full colour throughout.

Graham talks about his inspiration and reasons behind writing the book, and explores just some of the types of traditional magic contained within its pages.
