Description
 
What is the Tarot? For centuries people have speculated about the meaning and origin of these enigmatic cards. And yet there is a straightforward answer. What if they depict the world of the Italian Renaissance, the period when the first hand-painted cards were created? In this tale the Tarot comes to life as we journey with the Fool. Through her eyes we encounter the other twenty-one Trumps and the four suits - Swords, Cups, Coins and Staves. She argues with the Magician, sings with the Empress, weeps for the Hanged Man, cares for the Hermit, hunts with the Moon, rides with the Sun, sleeps with the Devil, and drives the Virtues to distraction. Here is an extravagant work of imagination and humour that captures the spirit of the Renaissance Tarot. It is immersed in esoteric lore and myth, and illustrated with forty original Tarot illustrations created by the author for this book.
