The Alchemy of Night

Limited Edition of 500. Available Now!£7.00 | 36 Pages Printed Booklet | £1.50 UK Postage.A collection of writing and illustrations inspired by the hours of darkness by Carol Anne Strange
The night isn't only for rest, sleep and dreaming. The darkness holds us in its nurturing embrace, giving glimpses of the mystery and enchantment that resides there. And although these faded hours, much loved by owls and moths, can be foreboding to some, there is a sense of comfort, insight and awe for others.In this collection, Carol Anne Strange celebrates the night in the way of stories, poems, personal insights, ideas and illustrations. Inspired by the hours of darkness, it's an invitation to contemplate the evening's mood while sat cosy in your favourite chair or around a camp-fire beneath a sky full of sparkly diamonds. It's for those who seek the secret wisdom that is present in the dark. You see, there is magic there - pure alchemy - that is both beautiful and extraordinary...
