Through experiments to try and places to visit, as well as a historical exploration of magic and interviews with leading magicians, Philip Carr-Gomm and Richard Heygate's The Book of English Magic will introduce you to the extraordinary world that lies beneath the surface.
Magic runs through the veins of English history, part of daily life from the earliest Arthurian legends to Aleister Crowley to the novels of Tolkien and Philip Pullman, and from the Druids to Freemasonry and beyond.
Richly illustrated and deeply knowledgeable, this book is an invaluable source for anyone curious about magic and wizardry or for sophisticated practitioners wanting to learn more.
"This book is never less than gripping . . . the otherworld beckons." --Daily Mail
