Craft - Gabriela Herstik (HB)
A new feminist book, Inner Witch is aimed at young women who want to empower themselves as witches. In a bright, breezy irrevenent style, Gabriele Herstik shows how contemporary women such as Patti Smith, Stevie Nicks, Beyonce and Dita Von Teese can be thought of as Witch archetypes. She then looks at spells, seasons, crystals, tarot, astrology, and rituals. A chapter 'Fashion Magic' explores the intersection of style, beauty and glamour. Sisterly advice is given on creating a goddess-based practice, writing grimoires and developing an individual witchy style. A bestseller with the under-25s, Herstik's Inner Witch is very much the witch book of the moment. NOTE: this same book has a US paperback edition released under the title Inner Witch -- please note these two are the same book.
