The High Magic of Talismans and Amulets by Claude Lecouteux

The book, The High Magic of Talismans and Amulets by Claude Lecouteux covers
all types and explains in detail of their usage and some history about them as well as when or where they are used. The book has a few black and white images, which can be helpful and plenty of great information about the different materials, colors and types of amulets, talismans, and charms.
Honestly, I think it's a really nice book, explains every type of amulet or charm used in magic or just worn for protection. Plus, the material and its benefits. Also, that writing found on some, which work with the amulet as well!  This book explains all of that as well. I feel the book gives a great idea of what is out there and found all over the world. Plus, the symbolism of each and description to what they provide. The book is well organized and great for researching or studying! It'definitely filled with useful information and great to take note of, if using in magic spells, trying to learn about these charms or just personal interest.
I love the front cover, makes me think of ancient or history using a realistic talisman on the front. The beauty of these can so be used as jewelry, but with the power they hold they are so much more! That is probably the main reason that I was interested in reading this book, to see what I've read in the past or seen on TV in movies and learn what they really were used for and what it meant to hold one or have in possession. So, yes this book really covered everything I have wondered about and of the most known amulets used in history and up to today.
Finally, I really love how well written and illustrated this book was to read. I definitely now have something to refer too, if ever I need to look up a beautiful amulet or talisman.
