“There is magic in the seemingly ordinary playing card deck we all grew up with, a whole enchanted world, just waiting to be discovered. The playing card deck has slipped through our lives for many hundreds of years under a veil of ordinariness, its magic disguised by its simplicity and the fact that it can be used for games ”
This deck is an original work of art designed to facilitate Divination, evoking the mysteries of ancient oracles, created by Charles J. Freeman (1941- 2010). Charles Freeman spent many years developing a full series of illustrations which are quite different from all previous decks in this genre.
The Playing Card Oracles is an inspiring and beautifully illustrated 280-page book based around the cards, containing a wealth of insights and ideas on playing card symbolism and meanings. Written by Ana Cortez, the book also includes a section written by her father, Charles J. Freeman, with supplementary essays, notes and food for thought regarding the history of playing cards.
