We are keenly awaiting the new book by Mike Howard, 'West Country Witches', which is due out next month. It is being published by Three Hands Press who have just launched 'The Occult Reliquary' for The Museum of Witchcraft. In this book Mike examines the witchcraft and sorcery practised by historical witches, charmers, cunning folk and pellars of Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset and Wiltshire and also the faery lore of these counties. Should be a good read!
Very busy in the museum at the moment as you can imagine so it was really irritating to discover that someone had stolen our large print guide books yesterday. We provide the guides for those who have difficulty with reading small print as part of our programme to be as accessible as possible for those with a disability. Graham had to spend most of the day redoing the guides as they had disappeared from the computer. I wonder how long it will take for them to be returned - most things that are stolen from the museum are returned quite soon - I have no idea why!!:)))

The long awaited Occult Reliquary featuring images and artifacts from the Richel Eldermans Collection has arrived and is available from the museum or from The Occult Art Company. The Special and Deluxe versions have sold out (although we may have another small allocation in 2 weeks time) but we have a number of standard editions available at £84.00 each. They are selling very fast so, if you are interested, get your order in quickly to avoid disappointment.
