about this item
Paul Huson’s Dame Fortune’s Wheel Tarot illustrates for the first time the earliest, traditional tarot card interpretations collected by Jean-Baptiste Alliette, aka Etteilla, a Parisian fortune-teller. Unlike other modern decks, the images are unadorned by the occult speculations of Mathers, Waite, or Crowley.
This book is a pictorial companion to the deck. In addition to detailed descriptions of the cards’ symbolism and significance—with both upright and reversed meanings—Dame Fortune’s Wheel Tarot provides meticulous full-color reproductions of Huson’s original designs for all 79 cards, including an extra Significator card specified by Etteilla that may be used optionally, and full instructions for how to lay out the cards for divination.
