Synopsis

All over the world, throughout history, amulets have offered protection against negative forces, whether witchcraft, the evil eye, enemies, sickness or accident. Here, in 31 neatly themed and beautifully illustrated chapters, the components, protective qualities and symbolism of a huge range of amulets are thoroughly explored. Used to guard anyone and anything vulnerable, their popularity is undimmed today.
