Do particular sounds have particular magical effects?
This is the age old question first raised by Plato, and wittily discussed in this little book by renowned author and philosopher John Michell.

Essential for orators, poets and sorcerers, this is a beautiful book, humorously illustrated throughout by "Guardian" cartoonist, Merrily Harpur.
