My brother's currently becoming interested in conservation while studying for a degree in geography. He's expressed a growing interest in nature-based religions, but, to quote, the people he's asked for information think he's 'taking the piss'.

I know there's probably a lot of dross to avoid out there (teen-witch love spells etc.), so I'd be very greatful if you wonderful folks could recommend books that give good information about (preferably British) pagan, druid and witchcraft traditions.

He's not taking the piss, honest!

To save space I thought I'd post on an existing thread, (even though it's ancient with no posts!). I don't want anyone to think I'm trying to do a sneaky plug but I spent ages searching for a suitable thread but this was the one that is the closest fit. It's not a recommendation either (not that big headed!), just wanted to share some photos of my first little book, The Circle of the Quiet Night as I've just received the first copy, which is 1 of 49 hand numbered copies.

I wanted to write a practical traditional craft, sabbatic work book or manual for a unique type of circle casting, which I've tried to keep simple but effective. I wont post info on purchasing the book, but here are a few pics, I'm pleased with how it's turned out, it's only 50 pages but I put a lot of work into the ritual formula and book design. If mods know a more suitable thread which I've missed please move it over.

Looks great. And the chapter content would be interesting to peruse. Congrats on getting the first work done. May more emerge.

Thanks skinny! This was the proof copy, there were a couple of errors which I had to fix, the chapter page numbers on the contents page were all wrong, and the number 1 in ''Number 1 of 49'' shouldn't have been there as I'm going to hand number all copies.

Well I admire your industriousness. I also like your use of fractal imagery on the cover and inlay. Immediately attractive.
