Helpful for artists 29 Aug 2001
By Aisling D'Art - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you're interested in altars from a magickal or artistic viewpoint, this is a good how-to book filled with prompts to get you building your own altar. It's mostly text, but if you're new to altars and not offended by Pagan themes, you'll enjoy this information. Combine this with the more illustrated book, "In a Spiritual Style" by Cerwinske, and you're set to create magnificent art and altars to the themes, images, deity, or deities of your choice.

Perfect gift for loved ones, perfect gift for yourself 14 Oct 2000
By Chameleon SilverCat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
No matter the religion, we all collect certain items and arrange them in specific ways. These collections are small insights into ourselves. Ms Conway walks you through the items you have already gathered, tells you what they mean, and how to arrange them with intent... to create an altar... a special place of self in a hectic world.
This little book is a gem and the perfect gift for everyone on your list. (Add a couple of candles for perfect presentation!)

Little Book of Alter Magic 18 Mar 2009
By A. E. Terry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Normally I like D.J. Conway and once she got away from Llewellyn Publications, her books over all picked up in caliber.

I found this book to be rather trite. Sure it has lots of correspondances in it, but that's about the only thing it offered and with having so many other books that also have correspondances in them, I saw no need to keep this book.

This just isn't a book I'd recommend unless you really want to pick up everything D.J. Conway has published.
One of my favorite authors! 21 Jun 2014
By William J Comeau - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is another one of my favorite authors. I have quite a collection of her books and am coming closer to having them all. This woman knows her stuff and has a unique way of intriguing and teaching the reader on the subject at hand. I love all of her books and have never found one I did not like. She is one of the foremost authors on Pagan, Wicca, and Dragon Magick. These are a must read if you are learning about either of them.
Really good book 15 Dec 2013
By Mary M. Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is very good for a beginner or even a seasoned Wiccan. It brings us back to the beginning and tells us what the meanings of our altars are all about.

If you have the opportunity to purchase this book you really should, it is a very good book.
