Synopsis

Signed Bookplate Edition A standard edition is available here. The unmissable sequel to bestselling, award-winning, multi-adaptation hit The Lost Words. Kindred in spirit to The Lost Words but intriguingly new in form, pocket-sized gem The Lost Spells introduces another beautiful set of spell-poems and artwork by formidable creative duo Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris. As in The Lost Words, these "spells" take their subjects from relatively commonplace, and yet underappreciated, animals, birds, trees and flowers - from Barn Owl to Red Fox, Grey Seal to Silver Birch, Jay to Jackdaw. But they break out of the triptych format of The Lost Words, finding new shapes, new spaces and new voices with which to conjure. 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, and inspires protection and action on behalf of the natural world. Above all, it celebrates a sense of wonder, bearing witness to nature's power to amaze, console and bring joy.
