Donated by the author.

A book of reproductions of tapestries on the subject of witchcraft, created by the author/artist between 2006 and 2017, together with her observations on the persecution of witches. Partly researched at the Museum. The author writes, "The Museum has been a great help and resource to me from early on in this project."

The book is accompanied by a postcard of one of the tapestries; an invitation to a Private View of the exhibition of the tapestries held in The Museum in the Park in Stroud, Gloucestershire (entitled Certaine Wytches: Fear, Myth & Magic); a leaflet about the exhibition; and the pamphlet/catalogue for the exhibition.

The exhibition was also the venue for a performance of the play Witch by Circle of Spears, which was also researched at the Museum.
