G is for Grimoires

Grimoires are magical textbooks or a book of spells whose name originated in ancient Europe. Grimoires are a place to save your instructions to create magickal objects (like talismans and amulets), how to perform rituals, spells and divination. Grimoires are also books that show how to summon and invoke spirits and entities like angels and demons.

The books themselves are filled with magickal power and they are unique and sacred to the owner. Grimoires come in all shapes and sizes. Some are handmade while some are purchased and imbued with power. Some are more like a diary and some are more like a long list of ingredients.
