Wild Alchemy Journal is a fascinating new alchemical/botanical/ecological hybrid of a magazine.
Published by experimental botanical studio Mama Xanadu, it's a project that seeks 'to navigate our fractured relationship with nature and the cosmos through both a scientific and esoteric lens'. To this end it's a multi-disciplinary magazine that certainly delivers a multi-sensory read through the classical elements of earth, fire, water, air and aether.
