The Witchery of Archery (Incandescence Press Edition)

The Witchery of Archery

One of the big projects that I have been working on has recently been released: a new edition of The Witchery of Archery by Maurice Thompson. This is THE legendary love letter to archery that first popularized it as a sporting recreation in the United States, complete with gushing odes to the natural world and outrageous recounts of true life adventure with longbow in hand.

Maurice Thompson was a famous author and poet in his day, but was largely forgotten in the 20th Century. The Witchery of Archery is his most enduring work, yet has not recently been available in a high quality edition, so we decided to produce a nice new edition of it at Incandescence Press. Now, through our efforts, you can purchase a lovely recreation of the original book as it was published in the 19th Century, in either softcover or hardcover format.

I wrote the introduction, author bio, and notes for the Incandescence Press edition myself. Check it out here (or click the cover image above) for more information!

Be sure you get the Incandescence Press edition!
