Seer: A Wizard’s Journal takes us on a mystical journey through the seasons. Wending our way through time and space, we meet monks, elves, angels, apparitions, and, of course, wizards. We venture into the hidden world that is all around us, the world that children so easily see.

This treasure trove of tales, poems, and original art offers us hope and wonder. It stirs within us a renewed yearning for other times, other places, and other destinies. Magic rings, secret journals, and the enchantment of nature remind us of the sanctity of our world — and invite us to rediscover our childhood dreams. This second edition has been updated with beautiful colour illustrations and two brand new stories that deepen the magic.

Join us on this journey. Learn to see again.
