Notes:

Issue 33 of the American zine Brainscan created by Alex Wrekk, who also designs and makes button badges (hence the publisher address). On the zine website she writes, "I am a witch and I have been studying and practicing witchcraft for over a decade and it has been a very useful tool in my life and personal growth. This zine is a not a how-to-witch zine. This zine is an issue of Brainscan that just happens to be about witchcraft told through my personal narrative."

This is a personal account of the author's own magical system, which she terms Secular Witchcraft, and which is influenced by traditional pragmatic folk magic and Chaos Magic. She is interestingly critical of "cultural appropriation in witchcraft and paganism".

Hand stitched with an acorn charm tied into the stitching. Illustrated by Steve Larder.
