English Magic Tarot Launch Event – Saturday 8th October – 5:30pm-7:00pm – Tickets £2.50 – 10% DISCOUNT on your purchase of ‘The English Magic Tarot’ with your ticket!
Join creators Steve Dooley, Rex Van Ryn and Andy Letcher as they launch their captivating new tarot deck which draws us into the vibrant but often hidden world of English magic, evoking a golden age of mysticism when John Dee was Queen Elizabeth’s Court Astrologer, antiquarian John Aubrey rediscovered ancient sacred sites, and the great physicist Isaac Newton studied alchemy.
The English Magic Tarot places the cards in the colorful yet turbulent period of English history that stretches from the time of Henry VIII to the Restoration. During this time of upheaval archetypal forces were very much at play, making this a perfect setting for the cards. Rex has illustrated the cards, fellow illustrator Steve Dooley has coloured them, and author Andy Letcher has written the accompanying book. There are unique twists to some of the traditional images in a dynamic, graphic style, with riddles, references, and lore buried within them that will draw users ever deeper into the mystery and meaning of the cards.
The first deck of its kind to draw explicitly on the English magical tradition, The English Magic Tarot opens up a rich new pathway into the cards that will delight novice and experienced tarot users alike.
