Publisher Comments:

Since the beginning of time, people have seized upon “magical” objects to guard against danger, assure good luck, and gather strength along life’s journey. Amulets and talismans still possess this power—and this fascinating reference showcases ancient and revered examples from cultures throughout the world. They come from the goddesses of antiquity, Egypt, the I-Ching, Chinese zodiac, Celts, runes, and medieval Europe.
