Now on its second printing, The Charmers’ Psalter is a beautifully bound book printed in a handy pocket sized tome. Gemma Gary has created yet another wonderful collection of charms and spells. Gemma is an artist and writer based in the South-West of England and has written many books on her own personal tradition and practices. She has helped open the eyes of many people to creating their own traditions not only in themselves but to be inspired by their geographical surroundings.
The collection is a rather mysterious one as it isn’t quite clear what the date or origins of them are, it is thought that they possibly predate Judeo-Christian Scripture. What is bound within these pages has been used by those who practise the folk magic tradition and has served many cunning folk before us. It covers a vast array of both charms and curses, some of which can be muttered quietly hence the pocketbook version which can be taken anywhere you go. From love to broken bones to curses; a practitioner is certainly covered for all eventualities.
As usual, Troy Books have created a beautiful book. It is bound in gold foil-blocked rust cloth and is a very inspirational addition to a witch’s library. Use it as it is or use it to create your own charms. It is highly recommended.
