9780312162948: A Wicked Pack of Cards: The Origins of the Occult Tarot
Review:

The authors, experts in the fields of art history, games, and the tarot, trace the history of the tarot deck from its origins in the game room to its current role in occult circles. Their thorough research cuts through the misconceptions and glamorization surrounding the cards' rather mundane beginnings, while revealing the rich history of psychological, political, and religious influences on our perceptions of what is now a common tool of many occult practitioners.

About the Author:

Ian Press is Professor of Russian, University of St. Andrews, and author of numerous books and articles on Russian language and literature.
