Practical Magic Witch Spell Book

Director Griffin Dunne's PRACTICAL MAGIC reveals that there's a little witch in every woman. Adapted from Alice Hoffman's best-selling book, PRACTICAL MAGIC stars Sandra Bullock as Sally Owens, Nicole Kidman as Gillian Owens, Stockard Channing as Aunt Frances, Dianne Wiest as Aunt Jet and Aidan Quinn as Gary Hallet. Orphaned sisters, Sally (Sandra Bullock) and Gillian (Nicole Kidman) Owens' unusual upbringing included studying spells and practicing the ancient arts, the center of which was a powerful spell book. Although Sally had refused her magical ability during her adult life, she turns to its power following the sudden death of her husband Michael (Mark Feuerstein). Returning to her aunts' house, she pleads for them to use the spell book to revive her husband. As she frantically flips through the pages, she begs, "I want you to bring him backŠ I have never asked you for anything. I've never asked you for spells, but do this. I know you can." But, her aunts (Diane Wiest and Stockard Channing) unanimously reply, "We won't do that. We don't do that. Even if we did bring him back, it wouldn't be Michael. It would be something else. Something dark and unnatural."

Similar to the spell book seen on camera, this handsomely crafted prototype book is being offered at auction for the first time. The thick, cream colored pages have rough edges and feature fully detailed, color illustrations and spells. The pages in the last quarter of the book are blank. A thinner, fold out section with a leather cover is located in the back of the book and contains additional color illustrations and spells. The exterior has been slightly distressed and bears scratches and dings in the leather. There is wear on the book edges and binding. 15 x 11-1/2 x 3.
