Danielle Renda, our resident Halloween lover, gets us in the mood for the spooktacular holiday with some of her favorite local, um, haunts in WAG’s October “Celebrate the Singular Spirit” issue. http://www.wagmag.com/the-hudson-valley-turns-festive/ So she was more than intrigued when Thames &Hudson sent us “The Occult, Witchcraft and Magic” just in time to give bookworms chills and thrills. Here’s what Danielle had to say about it:
“Bring the holiday haunts indoors with a history lesson – on religion, magic and spirituality – courtesy of Christopher Dell’s “The Occult, Witchcraft and Magic” ($39.95), a most seasonally-fitting book from Thames & Hudson. While you’re sipping on your witch’s brew, travel through time with accounts of early Paleolithic spells and incantations; science, magic and alchemy during the Middle Ages; and contemporary Wicca and nonspiritual magic of the 20th and 21st centuries. But may we suggest leaving the light on?”
