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 wand-making and its mysteries. It approaches the craft from its theoretical foundations, through the selection of wood and the art of carving, to the enchantment and dedication that charge a wand for magical use. Readers will discover how a tree branch is transformed into a wand of magic, gain an understanding of the tree spirits, or dryads, and learn about stones and their powers. This book reveals the true use of phoenix feathers and unicorn hair as wand cores. No magician, Witch, or Druid should be without this groundbreaking work.
