Reviews

"This is the only talisman book you will ever need. In this expansive tome, Lecouteux has unified information never before assembled in one place. This book is a useful guide and a wellspring on the subject, drawing from cultures throughout time and around the globe. Here, given to the readers, are historical examples of famous talismans and amulets, their meanings and origins, and explanations on how to generate them." * Maja D'Aoust, White Witch *
"Recommended to anyone interested in this topic. It doesn't explain all the secrets of talisman-making, but it does sort out the specifics of materials, methods, and the evolution of talisman-making practices through the Middle Ages in Europe." * Facing North, Elizabeth Hazel, July 2014 *
