Poppets are dolls used for sympathetic magic, and are designed in the likeness of individuals in order to represent them in spells to help, heal or harm. The word poppet comes from the Middle Ages in England, originally meaning a small doll or child, and it is still in use today as a name of endearment. The term is older than the phrase Voodoo doll. Pagan Portals Poppets and Magical Dolls explores the history of poppets and offers a practical guide to making and using them in modern witchcraft. It also covers seasonal dolls, from Brigid dolls, used in celebrations for the first stirrings of spring, to fairy dolls enjoyed in tree-dressing at Yuletide. Other topics covered include spirit dolls, ancestor dolls and dolls as representations of mythological beings and creatures from folklore. The newest book from Lucya Starza, author of Every Day Magic: A Pagan Book of Days.

Review:

In Pagan Portals - Poppets and Magical Dolls, Lucya Starza has done it again! In her own inimitable style, shes taken a much needed subject and crammed so much information into 25,000 words that it sends the senses reeling. In pagan writings we find that poppets are often talked about but not with any degree of positive information, and that when they are discussed its usually in connection with cursing and ill-wishing. Here we find poppets and magical dolls are much more sympathetically dealt with and with numerous different ways of utilising them, including the much-loved Teddy-bear you were given as a child. Lucya has certainly been busy with her research... a great book and an entertaining read. --Melusine Draco, author of Pagan Portals: By Spellbook & Candle
