The latest from folklore and mysticism publisher Weird Walk is a special edition art zine about the painter Ben Edge. In 2019, Edge set out to document a year's worth of traditional folk customs all throughout Britain. From druid ceremonies to hobby horses, he found inspiration in the persistent British folk practices and began painting the ceremonies, characters, and symbols as they exist today. 

This zine is a visual primer to Edge's work, including full colour images of the calendar customs, an extended interview with Weird Walk, and his Folklore Activist Manifesto in print for the first time.
