‘A beautiful, playful, intriguing book.’ Nina Stibbe

Every time you draw a card, you open up possibilities. What will appear and what will you see? What lessons could the cards offer up? What aspects of yourself might they reveal?

Discover the tarot with Wild Card, a friendly, funny and straightforward guide to the seventy-eight cards, their stories and meanings.

At its heart, the tarot is a storytelling device, a deck of symbols and narratives that can spark conversations, inspire ideas, and reveal new perspectives. And you don’t need to be psychic to use it: it is a practice that is open to everyone. In this beautifully illustrated guide, tarot readers Jen Cownie and Fiona Lensvelt introduce each of the cards, drawing on literature, pop culture, and their own experiences, and encourage you to add your voice to this centuries-old tradition. Whether you are learning to read for yourself and others, refreshing your knowledge, or just curious, Wild Card will show you how the tarot can add a little bit of magic to your life.

A beautiful, playful, intriguing book. -- Nina Stibbe, author of Love, Nina and Reasons to be Cheerful A deeply humane exploration of tarot awash with cultural references, humour and stories. A thoroughly modern (and welcome) reinvigoration of the tarot handbook. -- Sinead Gleeson, author of Constellations: Reflections from Life An indispensable guide to the tarot for both the seasoned reader and the novice. Up there with 78 Degrees of Wisdom, but with its own brand of no-nonsense expertise and guidance, as well as being beautifully illustrated, it's a classic for a new generation and a fun, friendly companion on anyone's tarot journey. I loved it. -- Rhiannon Lucy Cosslett, author of The Tyranny of Lost Things The perfect guide for anyone looking to incorporate and distill the wisdom of tarot into their life. A beautiful and fascinating guide. -- Sarah Crosby (@TheMindGeek), author of 5 Minute Therapy I absolutely adored Wild Card - it is precisely the sane, wise, welcoming, inclusive, beautiful and sensitive introduction to the cards I needed when I was learning, and it is going straight to the top of my recommended tarot books. I loved it in every particular, and will be pressing it on every tarot learner I can find -- Alice Tarbuck, author of A Spell in the Wild A tarot reading guide for people who aren't wholly sure that they are witchy enough to be into tarot. It's just the right balance of cosmic mystery and straight talking sense. -- Caroline O'Donoghue, author of All Our Hidden Gifts
