The Illustrated Herbiary: Guidance and Rituals from 36 Bewitching Botanicals By Maia Toll

REVIEW

descriptiondescriptiondescriptiondescriptiondescriptionI’m starting to think about Christmas gifts (yes already) and when I saw this book up for request on NetGalley I knew I had to grab it and check it out. My daughter is into all things “magic” and “occult,” and this seemed like it could be an excellent gift for her come December 25th.
descriptionSo first thing first, this book is just a real pleasure to look at. It is bright, colorful, and artsy. It is chocked full of beautiful illustrations, quotes, and interesting typography. It starts out with a preface and a short introduction. That is followed by THE HERBIARY which includes chapters on thirty-six different plants and flowers. Each section gives a little overview of the plant/flower and includes both a ritual and a reflection as well. After the Herbiary chapter, we get a short introduction on how to work with Herbiary cards (which come included with the book purchase).All in all, this was an interesting and visually pleasing (add in the cards that come with it) book, and I am confident this will be a hit gift-wise for anyone who loves all things “occult”.descriptiondescription
