Author: Sandra Lawrence. 208pp. 200 colour illustrations. 210 x 150 mm. Hardback, ISBN 9781787399068, Welbeck in association with RBG Kew, 2022.

At the centre of countless superstitions, folkloric tales and magical beliefs, as well as appearing in recipes and medicines both traditional and modern, mushrooms have incredible powers.

Featuring images of over 100 fascinating species, sourced from the archives at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, The Magic of Mushrooms shows that from saving lives to expanding the mind, the potential of these fascinating organisms should not be underestimated.
