Superstition: Black Cats and White Rabbits – The History of Common Folk Beliefs (Hardcover)
Superstitions have captured our imaginations for centuries but we are often unaware of where they came from and why. In her new book Superstition, Sally Coulthard explores the history and background of 50 of these fascinating cultural behaviours, how they affected our everyday, and how many of these beliefs still permeate modern life. From opening umbrellas indoors to not putting new shoes on the table, Sally gets under the skin of these peculiar pastimes and reveals how they started and why they became so popular.
Best-selling author Sally Coulthard has spent her life designing, building and writing about craft, homes, and outdoor living. From cool studios to salvage, workspaces to building sheds, Sally's books inspire, encourage, and equip readers to take on projects of their own.
