Arcadia Britannica: A Modern British Folklore Portrait Book of photographs by Henry Bourne.
Written by Steve Patterson, who researched the spells for the Museum’s Wise Woman’s Cottage soundtrack.
This beautifully produced book contains all the spells and charms used in the soundtrack, and is also a guide to the objects in the display, including previously unpublished material from the Museum’s archives. It is an evocative account of one of our best-loved displays, bringing to life the folk magic practices, cunning traditions and witchcraft of the West Country.
It is an elegant small format hardback, with an oatmeal-coloured binding blocked in black foil with a picture of a cat and a moon.
152 pages, with black and white illustrations.
