Witchbody by Sabrina Scott

“Magic does not need God to function, but it does need material bodies.  Magic is a way of talking a way of being with; it is collaboration and building relationships with non-humans, to connect and get stuff done.” 

Witchbody, by Sabrina Scott is a forthcoming publication from Weiser/Red Wheel that will be released in March 2019. It is a graphic novel full of beautifully illustrated ink drawings of a whimsical, enchanting and sometimes dark nature. It is, on the surface, a book, but upon further investigation it is a magical talisman of transformation. The book is in itself and independent entity with its own will. It is not a book that is simply read, it is visually and spiritually stimulating, not simply read but absorbed. Once absorbed it works its transformative magic on the reader. It is a book that leaves its mark on the reader, literally. It is intentionally risograph printed, a black ink that doesn’t entirely dry. It will subtly mark you over extended periods of reading. As a result your own fingerprints will decorate the pages as they are handled, showing the mutual relationship we share with all forms and beings around us. This graphic novel explores the relationship we have with the world around us, the various different forms that we connect with in our magical practices and how through this connection we are changed.

Witchbody moves the reader to consider his or her own body and its place in the wider web of being. Scott presents us with the idea of a “trans-species pedagogy,” showing us that through these mutual relationships both parties learn from one another and move further along their evolutionary path. It is a truly thought provoking work, presented in such a way that is down to earth.

I am a practitioner of traditional witchcraft, proud armchair occultist, and cultivar of baneful herbs. I have a passion for potion-making and arcane artifacts. I love researching and writing about the history of magic, occult philosophy, and the Pagan practices of Germanic/Norse traditions and the British Isles. As a writer, I have been working for about two years, and have taught workshops on esoteric herbalism, witches’ flying ointments, and the Poison Path. I recently self-published a zine-like booklet called “The Poisoner’s Pocket Guide” a collection of baneful plant lore and witchcraft. I have been growing a Witch’s Garden for about six years consisting of various plants commonly associated with witches and sorcery. I have been studying magic and the occult for a number of years. I later decided to go to school for religious studies, which helped me with my writing. Arizona State University is where I studied religion with an emphasis on religious text and ritual. I became interested in poisonous plants and traditional European witchcraft via my studies of American Folk Magic and African American Hoodoo, which introduced me to the grimoire tradition and eventually Sabbatic Witchcraft. In my writing I look to draw new connections between ancient mythology, symbolism, astrological correspondence and traditional witchcraft practices like spirit work, herb craft and soul flight.
