The Friar’s Delight Lenormand: a review

The Friar's Delight Lenormand is a little unpretentious gem of a deck. Firstly, I'm not big on Lenormand decks, I used to have a couple some years ago, and I dabbled with reading them but it never stuck so they quickly moved on to more motivated hands. After these failed experiences I spent a couple … Continue reading The Friar’s Delight Lenormand: a review

An Enchanted Landscape through The Immaterial Book

Around February of this year, Rubedo Press released a book by Jose Leitao, compiled and translated by him. I jumped at the chance to purchase the book as I highly admire his writing, his narrative is both accessible and rich. I find his scholarly take on the subject of Saint Cyprian, and especially on The … Continue reading An Enchanted Landscape through The Immaterial Book

LXXXI The Magician’s Deck: A Review

I received this deck around two months ago, and have read and studied the book carefully while using the deck exclusively on a daily basis. I like to involve myself with the decks I invest in, and I like to keep my collection small. I found this deck after listening to an interview by one … Continue reading LXXXI The Magician’s Deck: A Review
