3 in stock
The one-stop annual destination for fans of folklore, mythology and the occult.
Since 1971, The Witches’ Almanac has been the source of fun, wisdom, trivia and magical lore for hundreds of thousands readers throughout the world. Modelled after the Old Farmer’s Almanac, it includes information related to the annual Moon Calendar (weather forecasts and horoscopes) as well as legends, rituals, herbal secrets, interviews, mystic incantations and many a curious tale of good and evil.
This new edition of the venerable publication The Witches’ Almanac pays tribute to the animal kingdom—some home companions, some wild ones, some creatures of fantasy. The book features a throng of animals, great and small, in stories such as:
* The buzz from beekeepers celebrates honey
* A dog becomes a Japanese icon
* The Irish kidnap a wild goat for the Puck Fair
Insightful, entertaining, and filled with stunning graphics, this is the almanac on which thousands of readers rely every year. – and so much more
Although it is an annual publication, only about 15 percent of the content is time sensitive. Founded by Elizabeth Pepper in 1971, the art director of Gourmet magazine for many years, The Witches’ Almanac is a witty, literate and sophisticated publication that appeals to many readers other than hardcore Wiccans. At one level, it is a pop reference that will fascinate anyone interested in folklore, mythology and culture, but at another, it is the most sophisticated and wide-ranging annual guide for the Wiccan enthusiast. Since its first publication it has sold over two million copies worldwide.
