FOLK MAGIC AND HEALING Fez Inkwright

by: Fez Inkwright




FOLK MAGIC AND HEALING by Fez Inkwright

Illustrator, folklorist and tattoo designer Fez Inkwright has come up with this amazing hardback treasury of plants and their properties. She calls it “an unusual history of everyday plants” – it’s similar to the Sensory Herbal Handbook we featured a couple of issues ago, except the line drawings are all black and white, and it’s not as comprehensive on the magic and healing properties of the plants. All the same it’s utterly charming and coaxes you gently into all the “other” aspects of plants: their folklore, a few spells, a few remedies and old songs and poems that carry more than a grain of truth. It’s a point of departure – the drawings are bold and full of character – which will lead us to love our meadows and hedgerows more, and increase our appreciation of these plants’ wisdom.
