Iceland's folk sorcery traditions have recently been receiving renewed interest among the English-speaking practitioners and researchers, and this new book, a breakthrough work, focusses specifically on the herbal and plant magic.


Reykjavik-based Albert Bjorn is a transplanted folk magician originally from Sussex, and is perfectly positioned to bring the Icelandic ways to the Anglophone audience. He looks at the old charms, spells and potions for which Icelandic plants are used, together with translations of words used. Complementing the rich body of information are practical instructions for the modern practitioner who wants to try these workings hands-on.
