Discover the fascinating folklore, history and malignant properties of toxic plants.

‘If you drink much from a bottle marked ‘poison’, it is almost certain to disagree with you, sooner or later.’ – Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Poisonings are among the most memorable deaths in history, from the Roman Empire to the Medieval era and beyond. Concealed and deliberate, it’s a crime that must be planned in advance. And yet there is a fine line between healing and poisoning – Paracelsus argued that only the dosage matters!

In Botanical Curses and Poisons, Fez Inkwright returns to folkloric and historical archives to uncover historical uses and the fascinating, untold stories behind deadly plants, witching herbs and fungi.

 Beautifully illustrated by Inkwright, this treasury of folklore is packed with insight, lore and the revealed mysteries of everyday flora – perfect for gardeners, writers, folklorists, witches and general knowledge buffs alike!
