This book is the unmissable sequel to the bestselling, award-winning, multi-adaptation hit The Lost Words.
Kindred in spirit to The Lost Words but new in form, The Lost Spells is a pocket-sized treasure, a new collection of ‘spells’ – acrostic poetry and artwork – by our beloved creative duo Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris.
It’s written to be read aloud, call to forest, field, riverbank, ocean, and also to the heart, these ‘spells’ summon back what is often lost from sight and care, and inspire protection and action on behalf of our beloved natural world. From Jay to Jackdaw, Oak to Barn Owl, Silver Birch to Grey Seal, they capture the special, individual spirit of each plant and creature. Above all, they celebrate a sense of wonder, bearing witness to nature’s power to amaze, console and bring joy.
