Foreword Reviews - - Gift Ideas -

Andy Letcher, Rex Van Ryn, il­lus­tra­tor; Steve Doo­ley, col­orist, Weiser Books, Soft­cover $24.95 (160pp) 78 card deck, 978-1-57863-600-6

What we have here is the aus­pi­cious re­lease of a new deck of tarot cards based in the mys­ti­cism, mys­ter­ies, rit­u­als, and lore of El­iz­a­bethan-era Eng­land, per­haps his­tory’s most fer­vent pe­riod and place for the magic arts. Think knights and fools, mon­archs and high­way­men, in the an­i­mate land of Stone­henge and druids. Th­ese are tarot cards with the dy­namism of a graphic novel. Not the stuff of mere for­tune telling, they hint at a world rife with forces and cause-and-ef­fect con­nec­tions, where “change oc­curs in ac­cor­dance with will.”
