A Picture Book
A pervasive fear of the Wild Wood exists throughout folklore and literature, and it is often something that the hero must traverse on their way to succeeding in their quest. Psychologists have interpreted this trope of journeying into the forest as a metaphorical journey into the mind - the forest is our subconscious. The sometime friend and frequent foe often found within the forest is the witch. She lives in a house in the glade within our imagination, and this is where we join her, before venturing off to discover some of the many links between magic and language. A grimoire is a book of spells, and this is a book of spells - of metaphors, symbols and poetry.
