With a deck of cards, 80 illustrations, and the help of best-selling author Jonathan Dee, you can unlock the mysteries of the future. While Tarot decks are the best-known cards for divination, ordinary playing cards have been used successfully for hundreds of years to tell fortunes. Here, the instruction is divided into three sections, with the first describing the meanings of each card, including key words, astrological associations and numerical significance. The second part features the famous Romany Method, widely popular since the 1700s. Finally, thereís a full explanation of the intriguing Petit Lenormand method, which was first practiced in the court of Napoleon and uses a reduced deck of 36 cards. Donít wait for the futureódeal the cards for yourself.
