    ?I make songs to tie people to me, With a ribbon of fantasy around their necks Such a beautiful bow That I hold in my fist. And will not let go.? - from the poem American Mother This was sort of a scrap book of lyrics, a few poems, notes, photographs, and artwork. It?...

    Useless Magic is a music fan's dream! I'm pretty sure someone unfamiliar with Florence Welch (or her band, Florence + the Machine) would find this book worthwhile, although anyone would have to admit that the book is oh so pretty. The rich maroon cloth binding to the stunning photograp...

    Florence Welch has been such an important person in my life for years now. Her music is one of a kind, her words full of meaning that can left you feeling so full or so empty. Everything is full force or simmering within your veins. I love it all. ...

    O?ekivala sam vi?e poezije, zapravo, prvo sam o?ekivala samo (novu) poeziju, a ne i tekstove pesama sa svih albuma. Setila sam se koliko su mi va?ni i koliko volim Ceremonials i HBHBHB. Florensini crte?i i rukopis definitivno upotpunjuju do?ivljaj zbirke i hvala joj ?to je uvek ...

    This book is a mix of poems and songs. As Florence puts it in the preface: "I don?t know what makes a song a song and a poem a poem: they have started to bleed into each other at this stage." I've already known the beloved songs because I love Florence, but I must admit that she'd...

    This one was really good for me to read. It combined Welch's lyrics, poetry, art, and photographs assembled into a beautiful book. If you don't feel closer to her as a person after reading this, with a minimal understanding of her being, then I don't know what else could do it. Her lyr...

    Ok deco, evo kako stoje stvari. Javila sam drugarima da sam kupila knjigu i rekla sam im da je potpuno nepotreba, ali prelepa. I stvarno je takva. Useless magic je zbirka pesama koje je Florens napisala i koje se, sa izuzetkom od njih nekoliko, nalaze na albumima. Te koje su ,,samo za ...

    I loved this. Though most of the book was lyrics from her albums, it was different reading the words. It was different seeing them alone, without the big gospel sounds typically accompanying them. I also noticed that I was mistaken about a few lyrics! The poetry section was also lovely...

    Florence Welch is my favourite musician, bar none. There was no way I wasn't going to love this. The art is so beautiful and I loved seeing all of her sketches and hand written notes. I was hoping there would be more poetry than lyrics, but it's still a beautiful book for fans of FATM....

    I found this book to be so beautiful. I love how the pages were filled with notes & to-do lists turned song lyrics or poetry. It had pretty little images, drawings, & scribbles of ideas woven between Florence's wonderful words. This woman is so talented. Reading her lyrics on p...
