Tarot Flamand de 1780 review by OxfordBear
If you've ever visited the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic in Boscastle, Cornwall, UK, then you will have seen the exhibit called Joan's Cottage, a tableau depicting a reconstruction of a nineteenth century witchs home. The figure of Old Joan, named after the historical Joan Wytte, sits at her table surrounded by the paraphernalia of her Craft: dolls, bottles of potions, her crystal ball and, laid out for a reading, the deck of cards I'm about to describe. Of course, Joan Wytte herself died in 1813 and would almost certainly never even have heard of this or any other tarot deck, but why spoil a good story?
