This Halloween we have the perfect spooky treat for you: An Introduction to Witchery: A magical guide for witches that craft by crafter, stylist, and lover of all things witchy, Helena Garcia. Helena has developed a range of quirky fashion accessories and handmade cosmetics and has been sharing her slightly goth craft projects on her inspirational Instagram account @candycandyUK for some time – it is definitely worth checking this out for the stunning imagery. However, this Halloween, she wanted to celebrate with a gorgeous, high-quality coffee table book packed full of witch “crafts”.
This ghoulish delight ignites the inner witch with glamorous projects to add a bit of bewitching style to your wardrobe and home, as well as recipes for fiendish dinners and lotions and potions to keep you looking fang-tabulous.
Helena’s fun and quirky style draws you in from the start, as do the chic illustrations. Whether you are new to crafting or witching, or just want to celebrate Halloween in style, Helena has just the project for you.

Helena came to self-publishing because she had had a bad experience with the traditional publishing world. She explains, “My original book was all about how Halloween developed from a Celtic festival to the celebration it has become today. It had a darker and Victorianesque feel to it, still with craft projects and recipes. Although I initially got a publishing deal, one of the other publishers I had submitted the book to (who rejected it) got an in-house writer to write a very similar book. This meant that the deal I had secured was withdrawn. I then decided to do things my way and rather than worry about making the book commercial enough to sell, I wrote it for myself, representing what I am into and my style.”
