The Lost Spells : An enchanting, beautiful book for lovers of the natural world.

This pocket-sized treasure is the perfect gift for fans of nature, language and rich artwork, adult and child alike!

Lose yourself in the enchanting world of Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris with "The Lost Spells". Available in both book and audio CD format, this captivating collection of stories and illustrations brings nature to life.

Kindred in spirit to The Lost Words but fresh in its form, The Lost Spells introduces a beautiful new set of natural spell-poems and artwork by beloved creative duo Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris. Each "spell" conjures an animal, bird, tree or flower -- from Barn Owl to Red Fox, Grey Seal to Silver Birch, Jay to Jackdaw -- with which we share our lives and landscapes. Moving, joyful and funny, The Lost Spells above all celebrates a sense of wonder, bearing witness to nature's power to amaze, console and bring joy.

Written to be read aloud, painted in brushstrokes that call to the forest, field, riverbank and also to the heart, The Lost Spells summons back what is often lost from sight and care, teaching the names of everyday species, and inspiring its readers to attention, love and care.

'Luminously beautiful. An amulet in dark times, to be carried like a talisman out into the world, where it is very much needed' Dara McAnulty

A book about spells that succeeds in being spell-binding in its own right .

. . It already feels like a true classic.

Hardback 240 pages 132 x 184 x 27 (mm)

The Audio CD edition of The Lost Spells is an enchanting collection of 'spells' - acrostic poetry and artwork - by writer Robert Macfarlane and artist Jackie Morris.

This audio treasure calls readers to nature, from the forest to the ocean, while also beckoning to the heart. Each 'spell' celebrates a plant or creature, evoking its special spirit. Above all, the audio celebrates nature's potential to evoke awe, consolation, and joy. Yrsa Daley-Ward, Johnny Flynn, and Julie Fowlis, set against a beguiling soundscape from wildlife recordist Chris Watson, create an immersive audio experience.
