Spells and Charms Booklet
A booklet of written charms from the Museum’s displays.
Alex Langstone has all the thoroughness and passion for his subject as the classic folklorists of the past, but with an easy journalistic style that has produced a readable and entertaining book. Anyone interested in Cornwall’s rich and magical traditions will find it an engrossing read.
He draws on, and often quotes, a wide range of sources, and the text is complemented by beautiful black and white illustrations by Paul Atlas Saunders and Gemma Gary, as well as black and white photographs.
