Learn the secrets of wandmaking and gain a powerful new tool for magical workings of all sorts. This enchanting, one-of-a-kind guidebook is for anyone who's ever wanted to know how magic wands work or longed to have a real magic wand of his or her own. Written by the foremost authority on the making of wands, this book is the first devoted solely to the art of wandmaking and its mysteries.

Discover how a tree branch is transformed into a wand of magic, from selecting the wood and working in harmony with the tree spirits (or dryads) to understanding the magical correspondences of different stones, colors, and metals. Wandlore reveals aspects of wand theory that have never been discussed before in print—such as how the four-part design of a magic wand relates to the four alchemical elements, and the role of astrology, elemental correspondences, and the spheres of existence in wandmaking. It shares the magical process for empowering wand cores using phoenix feathers, unicorn hair, and elements of other mythical creatures.

This groundbreaking masterwork belongs in the library of every practicing magician, witch, wizard, or druid.

How wonderful it would be to live in the world of folk-tradition: a magical place where the world is joined-up, the sacred is apparent in the everyday world, and every living thing... read this article
