 "Full of original art, sigils, massive research, a clear writing and teaching style, this is definitely the best book on the subject of sigils that has ever been written, hands-down. This book isn’t just a showcase of historical sigil methods or rehashed information. Tempest brings new creative ideas to the table while placing a focus on directly interacting with the book’s material to make sigil magick your very own personalized form of witchery.”-read the complete review at For Puck's Sake

"Sigil Witchery is a unique resource for those interested in Sigils and the art of making them... The history/example section is really strong. It is one of the most comprehensive ones out there, and is blessedly not Eurocentric. The method itself, and this book, would be useful to both those familiar with sigils, and those who are new to them." - read the complete review from Kitty, Magus Books & Herbs

 

Critical Praise:

“These are not your grandfather's sigils! This is not your grandmother's witchcraft! In Sigil Witchery Laura Tempest Zakroff -- a powerful Witch, a gifted artist, an inspired dancer -- offers that rarest of magical hen's teeth: a highly original, powerful new way to work magic. Most books on magic and witchcraft rehash the same old methods and techniques over and over with no more than minor variations. To the best of my own knowledge, Tempest has invented an entire new approach to making and using sigils here, and I think it is an extremely powerful one. She carefully walks her readers through her new method step by very clear step. As most magicians are not artists, she also guides the reader through the daunting choices of papers, pencils, inks and paints, pens and brushes found in any good art store. I recommend this book in the highest possible terms. Buy it and try it!” – Robert Mathiesen, Professor emeritus, Brown University
 “With style, wisdom, and a generous dose of humor, artist and author Laura Tempest Zakroff offers us a new look at an ancient magical practice: the creation and use of sigils, as well as modern tools to take this practice to the next level. From the historical and ritual use of symbols, signs, seals, and marks, to the creative process itself, including tools and artistic techniques, Sigil Witchery makes an impressive contribution to a traditional body of occult knowledge, offering the new and seasoned practitioner alike the means to create and effectively employ the use of sigils for a variety of magical purposes, and have fun doing it! If you have ever wanted to learn how to create and work with sigils then you need look no further.” —Storm Faerywolf, author of Betwixt and Between: Exploring the Faery Tradition of Witchcraft and The Stars Within the Earth
 “Few people possess a special type of magick flowing from them like the Midas Touch, turning everything that they do into absolute gold. Laura Tempest Zakroff is one of those people. Whether it’s dance, writing, teaching, art, or combining them; Tempest is a force of nature just as her name suggests. Sigil Witchery is a prime example. Full of original art, sigils, massive research, a clear writing and teaching style, this is definitely the best book on the subject of sigils that has ever been written, hands-down. This book isn’t just a showcase of historical sigil methods or rehashed information. Tempest brings new creative ideas to the table while placing a focus on directly interacting with the book’s material to make sigil magick your very own personalized form of witchery.” – Mat Auryn, Professional Psychic, Witch, Writer, and Blogger at Patheos Pagan
 “This wonderful book takes the concept of sigil well beyond the simplistic, basic notions of the Spare method, and opens the door on the deeper art and potential of sigils as it applies across the spectrum of spellcraft. Any student of the occult with an interest in sigils and sigil crafting: this is a book you need. – Arjil, Teacher of Just Effing Magick, and Creator of the somewhat infamous Ellis Sigil.
 "Sigil Witchery pulls together a number of threads in contemporary magic with insight and intelligence while keeping the applications of magical symbolism front and center. Zakroff's study ranges from the tattoo patterns of the Amazigh people to graffiti tags found in urban alleys, yet the wide scope of her interests never gets in the way of her clear writing. Her approach to sigil craft is rooted, practical, imaginative, and inspiring." – Cory Thomas Hutcheson, author and co-host of New World Witchery podcast 
"Sigil Witchery perfectly combines the history and art of mark-making with the science and art of magick." – Chris Orapello, author, artist, and co-host of Down at the Crossroads (podcast) “With this book Tempest totally shifts the idea of using magical sigils from a rote, rather dry process, to an artistic creation that you don't have to be a gifted artist to do. She brings this information in a conversational way, it's easy to follow, fun, and full of historical details with a modern perspective. Through Sigil Witchery you get a peek at how Tempest works as a magical practitioner with plenty of space to create a system that fits your own style and practices. After reading it I felt super inspired to create a sigil and have it tattooed on me!” – Phoenix LeFae, author of Hoodoo Shrines

"Sigil Witchery delves into areas of sigil work not commonly discussed. Additionally, it provides the reader all the tools needed to enrich their practice with the power, magic, and wisdom that comes from crafting personalized magical symbols. Highly recommend to anyone interested in the intersection of art, magic, and symbol." – Matthew Venus, Artist, Sigilic Magician, and Magical Apothecary
