Though these spells come from various traditions, they all have one thing in common, that is, the construction and use of dolls used in the casting of spells. The author gives detailed instructions on how to construct various types of dolls (poppets, effigies, waxen images, etc...) as well as how to use them to achieve various goals. The spells themselves are organized by purpose in an A to Z format for easy reference.
In addition to the spells, Alvarado has gone a step further and included various formulas for oils, and powders such as Lost and Away Powder and Bend Over Oil among others which some practitioners may be familiar with and which are utilized in the casting of spells. The inclusion of these formulas alone is well worth the price of the book. Throughout the Voodoo Doll Spellbook there are several photographs and illustrations of various voodoo dolls in the author's collection which add to the mystique of this powerful tool of magick!
Although the author has included some basic information on the theory behind how magic works, I suggest you refer to Alvardo's previous work Voodoo Dolls in Magick and Ritual if you wish to delve into the history of voodoo dolls. The Voodoo Doll Spellbook is a practical, hands-on grimoire on the art of casting spells using various types of dolls. Here you will find everything you need to construct a doll in order to cast a spell for virtually any practical goal. This is a reference that you will return to again and again.
Now on to the making of the dolls, her detailed "How to's" and pictures of her own art were so easy to follow, I have created several dolls of my own of various kinds. My favorite being the altar dolls with the sticks and the Spanish Moss.
The only injustice to herself the author did was make it too easy for others, like me and my son, to create high quality dolls at our kitchen table. The book even comes with easy to use patterns.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn how to make and use Voodoo dolls for what ever purpose. You wont be disappointed.
It's an awesome spellbook if you have money to buy the supplies!
There is plenty of historical data and references to keep the interest of the researcher, alive & well.
Looking forward to Ms. Alvarado's other books :)
