Author Jessica Hundley takes on the 600-year history of tarot with a breathtaking first-ever compilation of more than 500 cards and tarot artwork, most of which have not been seen beyond their decks. The book is arranged according to the sequencing of the cards and covers Medieval to modern eras with nearly 100 contemporary artists’ works represented. Hundley includes excerpts from great thinkers like 19th century scribe Éliphas Lévi and psychiatrist Carl Jung. Marcella Kroll, host of the podcast Saved By the Spell, is also an expert contributor. For tarot newbies, there’s a helpful guide to reading the cards by author Johannes Fiebig.
