Published by Rockpool Publishing

In the fascinating world of Tarot cards, this deck has something more to offer, both to complete beginners and to expert readers.

Every Major Arcana introduces the readers to a famous witch and in the Minor Arcana, witches as well as their tools and animals are divided into categories that correspond to the four elements of fire, water, air and earth.
The witches found in the deck are aged savages, ancient fairies, fallen goddesses, nocturnal creatures, lords of chaos and explorers of cusps. They come from the various traditions the world over, to gather beyond the mist and under the moon.

Francesca Matteoni teaches history (history of religion, anthropology of magic and witchcraft, mysticism and magic in the Renaissance) at a number of American Universities in Florence and holds workshops on Tarot cards, fables and poetry. She lived in England, where she earned a doctorate and conducted researches in modern history, elaborating the processes of witchcraft, the magic of bodies and medical folklore. She is the author of a number of publications.
