Announcing Botanical Curses and Poisons

We’re thrilled to announce a new project from Fez InkwrightBotanical Curses and Poisons: The Shadow Lives of Plants. This gorgeous book will be published in September 2020. (edit: this book is now releasing in January 2021)

It’s a sequel of sorts to the much-beloved book Folk Magic and Healing (available now in our webshop!).

‘If you drink much from a bottle marked ‘poison’, it is almost certain to disagree with you, sooner or later.’ – Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Poisonings are among the most memorable deaths in history, from the Roman Empire to the Medieval era and beyond. Concealed and deliberate, it’s a crime that must be planned in advance. And yet there is a fine line between healing and poisoning – Paracelsus argued that only the dosage matters!

In Botanical Curses and Poisons, Fez Inkwright returns to folkloric and historical archives to uncover historical uses and the fascinating, untold stories behind deadly plants, witching herbs and fungi.

This will be a sumptuously produced hardcover book with metallic foiling on the cover, a ribbon bookmark and illustrations on every page! 

Stay tuned for more info on pre-orders, and be sure to follow Fez on Instagram for image reveals and special giveaways.
