A grimoire is a manual for invoking spirits. Here, acclaimed poet Robin Robertson and his brother Tim - whose accompanying images have the enchantment of cave-paintings - raise strange new forms. These are stories of ordinary people caught up without warning in the extraordinary: tales of violence, madness and retribution, of second sight, witches, ghosts, selkies, changelings and doubles. Haunting and elemental, Grimoire is full of the same charged beauty as the Scottish landscape - a beauty that can switch, with a mere change in the weather, to hostility and terror.
