Author: Taisia Kitaiskaia
Illustrator: Katy Horan
Publisher: Clarkson Potter (2019)
The Literary Witches Oracle is a 70-card oracle deck based on Taisia Kitaiskaia’s book with Katy Horan, Literary Witches: A Celebration of Magical Women Writers. The tarot-like deck features the 30 authors from the book along with all-new otherworldly symbols inspired by the book’s imagery.
In addition to the portraits of literary heroes, such as Virginia Woolf and Toni Morrison, and lesser-known trailblazers, such as Yumiko Kurahashi and Mirabai, the deck features 40 symbol cards bearing Katy Horan’s illustrations of potent spiritual icons. Taisia Kitaiskaia’s guidebook acts as an interpreter, helping you find meaning in the cards based on your specific intentions, the writers’ dominant traits, and the spiritual symbols at play.
