The definitive magic reference book for Witches, Wiccans and all devotees of the magical arts. This is the real version of the archetypal master spell book of fantasy that has a place in our collective imagination.
Today there are many books of spells for specific needs and occasions for the practising Wiccan/witch, but no comprehensive and inclusive magic reference book exists.
The Element Encyclopedia of 1000 spells is the magical equivalent of a prize and inspirational cookbook: nothing is too basic to be explained and yet sophisticated tastes as well as emergency situations are catered for.
This book goes beyond merely the Wiccan tradition to include a multitude of eastern and western magical traditions whilst fulfilling the archetypal fantasy of the grand grimoire (master spell book). This book is that fantasy made real.

I purchased this for iPhone and was really excited to have the Encyclopedia of 5000 spells as a quick and ready reference. Well my excitement quickly died as once I purchased it and got past the cover and then the cover page which both said "5000 Spells", the following claimed the title "Encyclopedia of 1000 Spells" which any fan of Judikas knows is the shorter and less in-depth version of her work. This was totally false advertisement and I'm really disappointed.
My rating isn't low because of the writing, but because I feel cheated.
