This book of “Ancient Magick Spells of the Occult” may be the most hilarious grimoire of all time
Imgur user obviousplant assembled this hilarious grimoire of fake magick spells and placed it in a metaphysical bookstore. It’s full of goofball recipes for achieving magical results.
A grimoire is traditionally a book of magical spells or recipes for contacting strange beings like angels or fairies; these books were wide-spread in the Middle Ages and were often hoarded by powerful people (like the Catholic Church) who didn’t want their secrets escaping to the public. Sorcerers would also turn to a spellbook to discover how to perform divination, create magical amulets and charms, read the stars and lots of other unexpected tricks. Did any of this work? It’s hard to say. However, “obviousplant” has clearly gone out of his way to create a working grimoire that at least has the power to make us laugh.
Here’s an example spell from the grimoire:
A Spell of Peaceful Calm
Cast this spell when you are feeling stressed.
You will need:
- Some rocks
- A cloudless night
- Go outside

Here’s another one:
