A Book of Shadows
A Book of Shadows is a magical diary. No two are exactly alike, since these volumes contain the experiences and important documentation of Wiccan practices of significance to the individual witch. Similar to a scientist's laboratory notebook, these books record the methods and materials used to perform magic and the results of these operations. The witch would carefully document rituals, chants, tools and correspondences; then, through careful observation and analysis, synthesize working methods for everything from healing spells to tasty recipes for sabbat cakes.
