This captivating new tarot deck draws you into the vibrant but often hidden world of English magic, evoking a golden age of Elizabethan-era mysticism when John Dee was Queen Elizabeth’s Court Astrologer, antiquarian John Aubrey rediscovered ancient sacred sites, and the great physicist Isaac Newton studied alchemy. Brought to you by renowned artist Rex Van Ryn, colorist Steve Dooley, and writer Andy Letcher, this deck has a dynamic, graphic style.   

This isn't your average tarot deck. Through a series of riddles, clues and hidden messages imbedded in the cards, the English Magic Tarot tells a story. Once you solve the code it will help you better understand the wisdom behind the cards and the true source of English magic.
