Description

“A rambling & poetic autoethnography of western occult magic as a pathway for environmental learning & advocacy.”

The first graphic novel of its kind, Witchbody is a meandering synthesis of autoethnography, magic theory, and philosophical speculation. It is full of wonder at what it can mean to learn and teach and change and grow in this world which belongs to all of us: you, me, plants, trees, coffee cups and garbage bins. What can it mean to be a witch today, in the city?

Read our review of this unique and beautiful book here on Little Red Tarot.

Note: This is the first edition, self-published by the author and risograph printed. A new mass-market edition will be published by Weiser Books in March 2019.


“WITCHBODY is a meandering synthesis of autoethnography, magic theory, and philosophical speculation. It is full of wonder at what it can mean to learn and teach and change and grow in this world which belongs to all of us: you, me, plants, trees, coffee cups and garbage bins. What can it mean to be a witch today, in the city?

My practices as an illustrator, writer, and witch are all intermingling, entangled. These creative processes are my way of working out similar things using different methods and media, but the creative fire that emerges comes from the same inspiration and intuition. I want to help push forward conversations about magic, life, death, change, transformation, environment, learning, growing.

I want to help us see our own stories, and to encourage the writing of new ones.

I created this book to be a talisman.

It will show you your relationship to it, where you have touched it and where you have been. It will draw your attention to the marks you are always making. It will show you that it can mark you, too.

Risograph printed, black ink never really dries. While it will never get on your clothes, after extended reading you may find your fingers stained just slightly, and on each creamy page, if you look closely, you’ll be able to see fingerprints (inky, yours): barely noticeable. This book is about objects. It is about how the world pushes back on us, how it shapes our bodies, creates our forms, curates our creations.”

– Sabrina Scott, artist, academic and witch.
