Gypsy Sorcery & Fortune Telling with introduction by Gemma Gary.
This book presents a unique and fascinating collection of Romani witchcraft, folklore, charms, spells, cures, and divination and is profusely illustrated with the author’s own evocative drawings. One of the witchcraft revival’s most influential figures, American folklorist Charles Godfrey Leland, who would become the founding president of the Gypsy Lore Society, sought out the gypsies of England; befriending them, learning their language and immersing himself in their beliefs, stories and practices.
An important written account for those wanting to reconnect with their forgotten Romani traditions and roots.
