The spooky celebrations are not over yet! The recently published tome Witchcraft explores the symbolism of witches and how that's changed over time, giving a comprehensive history of their place within society.

Edited by Jessica Hundley, and co-edited by author, scholar, and practitioner Pam Grossman, this visual chronicle is the first of its kind. Through a mix of essays written by modern practitioners like Kristen J. Sollée and Judika Illes, as well interviews with authors and scholars such as Madeline Miller and Juliet Diaz, this book dissects a variety of witchcraft traditions, as explored throughout centuries of art. Witches have always featured heavily in different genre's of paintings, whether it be through their association to evil that's shown through Francisco José de Goya's work, or as a magical entity, like how the Surrealist circle of Remedios Varo, Leonora Carrington, and Leonor Fini interpreted them. This was, and still is, the case within literature, from the poison apples of The Brothers Grimm, to the Weird Sisters gathered at their black cauldron in Shakespeare’s Macbeth, to L. Frank Baum’s iconic Wicked Witch of the West, cackling over the fate of Dorothy. With a history that's so extensive and meaningful, it's about time that these enchantresses are immortalised in a well-rounded compendium, that shows the many facets and interpretations they denote

If you still don't feel like embracing you're inner sorceress, Witchcraft will show you why you should do so. As Yoko Ono once said, “I think that all women are witches, in the sense that a witch is a magical being.”
