The Good Spell Book
Love Charms, Magical Cures, and Other Practical Sorcery
by Gillian Kemp
The world's most popular fortune-telling techniques-crystal balls, tarot cards, & palm reading - originated with the Romany, whose belief in magic, spellcasting, & prophecy has endured for nine centuries. Now, in this beautifully illustrated book, the author reveals time-honored secrets of the supreme practitioners of divination & the mystic arts. Drawing on time spent with some of Europe's dwindling Romany groups, the author has compiled a practical collection of their good spells, which are easy to follow & use everyday ingredients such as candles, flowers, ribbons & string. From love charms to spells for money, health & happiness, this fun & attractive spellbook keeps alive the colorful traditions of the Romany people & promises great luck in the future for true believers.
The Good Spell Book is a delightful little collection of Romany folklore, spells, charms, and cures that focus on the good things in life - love, luck, health, and happiness. The spells are simple and require only basic ingredients, such as a ribbon or a candle. This simplicity allows for a singular focus on the outcome of the spell, whether it's relieving a headache or finding a lost pet.
With its rustic charm, The Good Spell Book stands out from other spell books; it looks like someone's diary with flower petals, photographs, and even postage stamps stuck between the pages. Whether you read it out of curiosity or to add happy spells to your own collection, you're sure to enjoy the feel of this well-crafted volume.
