There has been magic in the air since the world was young. Wizards and witches have peopled legends through the centuries, and the age of magic has by no means passed away. There are times when we all wish we could weave a spell to make our dreams come true. The Wizard's Book of Spells is an enchanting compendium of magical lore. It tells the story of magic and its famous practitioners, both historical and fictional, from Merlin and Dr Dee to Gandalf and Professor Dumbledore. There is practical magic, too: spells, incantations, magical herbs and rituals.

Superb illustrations feature specially commissioned paintings by Robert Ingpen, as well as works by artists from Bosch to Goya, Arthur Rackham's atmospheric book illustrations, medieval woodcuts and extraordinary engravings of arcana.
