A History of Magic, Witchcraft and the Occult by DK Publishing
DK Publishing is one of our favorite labels. Their high quality production and richly illustrated, meticulously researched books instantly hooked us.
So we got positively giddy when they recently published a book on the history of witchcraft.
Far from the fluffy, dubiously referenced “history” books that so often make their way into the occult section at Barnes and Noble, this book takes a respectably scholarly approach.
If you want a solid foundation in magical history, invest in A History of Magic, Witchcraft and the Occult and refer to it over and over for years to come.
Royal Witches: Witchcraft and the Nobility in Fifteenth-Century England by Gemma Hollman
Speaking of history, we found a gem for you.
While most Americans know all about the Salem Witch Trials, fewer know the drama and intrigue of the women in Royal Witches.
If you think the current royal family’s spectacle is mesmerizing train wreck, they got nothing on the Westminster Abbey of yore.
The Junior Astrologer’s Handbook to Astrological Signs, the Zodiac and More by Nikki Van De Car
We love, love, love that more and more publishers are producing spiritually-minded books for kids.
If one of your little witchlettes takes an interest in astrology, pick up a copy of the The Junior Astrologer’s Handbook.
From kid-friendly meditations to establishing healthy boundaries in your friendships according to your sun sign, this wholesome book promotes positive self-reflection and growth.
While you’re researching your fall reading list, don’t forget theirs!
Tarot of Mystical Moments
When we received our review copy of Mystical Moments Tarot, it instantly left us awestruck.
It’s the only tarot deck we’re including on the fall reading list this year because it’s just so damn beautiful.
Its illustrator, Catrin-Weiz Stein, possesses an extraordinary talent for surrealistic splendor.
With exceptional artwork, a vibrant color palette and an otherworldly interpretation of the standard tarot deck, these cards are born of a rare imagination.
Plants of the Cherokee by William Banks
In the 1950s, author and researcher William Banks devoted himself to recording the traditional plant medicine of the Cherokee tribe.
The Cherokee people were (and are) a highly advanced civilization with deep knowledge of their natural and regional environment.
Interviewing the eldest medicine people, Banks documented many of the ingenious ways they used wild grown herbs.
The only book on this list that isn’t a recent publication, Plants of the Cherokee is nonetheless a precious and timeless collection of indigenous herbal knowledge.
Astrology for Mystics by Tayannah Lee McQuillar
If astrology is your jam, this book takes a unique approach to the art of mystical stargazing.
While sometimes wordy and rambling, Astrology for Mystics saves itself by being accessible and easy to read.
Pick this one up for a clear, cold night and enjoy it with a cup of tea and a thick blanket.
