Witches! (Sorcières !)

Julie Proust Tanguy

Couverture par Sébastien Hayez

Around the smoking cauldron, three shapes move about. The witches are brewing mysteries with a tuft of black cat hair. Screams of terror, childish tremors and sensual feminine silhouettes can be seen in their greenish potion. The voices of the dancing women hum with familiar names: Baba Yaga, Morrigan, Medea, Carrie, Esme Weatherwax…

Their sabbat has spread a litany of clichés for centuries: toads, brooms, pointy hats… But, really, who are these enchantresses whose crooked fingers tear the veil of time? Are they the brides of the Devil, or simple pointers of a dark history of femininity?

Redoubtable necromancers, often-ignored healers, dark doubles for fairies, femmes fatales sent to burn on stakes, meet the witches in this modern grimoire which will reveal their ancient origins and their strange fate!
