Author's Notes: This book was originally planned to be a reference book for fantasy artists who wanted to add more realism to their work when the subject is Witchcraft. However, the publishing company decided to gear the book more towards the Harry Potter crowd, young readers and comic book enthusiasts so the final version leans a bit too much towards the stereotype witch. But if you like looking at fantasy art from some amazing contributing artists and want to learn a few basics, you'll likely find this book will serve your needs.
Where To Buy: If you do a websearch, you can find many retail outlets for purchasing a copy of the book. It's being carried by Barnes & Noble, Amazon.com, Borders and others.
