Literary Witches: A Celebration of Magical Women Writers
An inventive guidebook that pairs imaginative vignettes with whimsical, folkloric illustrations
Literary Witches reimagines visionary writers as witches: both are figures of formidable creativity, empowerment, and general badassery. Through a series of thirty lyrical portraits, Taisia Kitaiskaia and Katy Horan honor the witchy qualities of well-known and obscure authors alike, including Virginia Woolf, Mira Bai, Toni Morrison, Emily Dickinson, Octavia E. Butler, Sandra Cisneros, and many more.
Perfect for both book lovers and coven members, Literary Witches is a treasure trove of creative and courageous women who aren't afraid to be alone in the woods of their imagination. Kitaiskaia and Horan conjure evocative, highly stylized depictions of history's most beloved female authors, introduce enchanting new writers, and invite you to rediscover the magic of literature.
