Map your mental passageways without the hiring of a mystic with The Fantod Pack, Edward Gorey’s darkly humorous take on the classic tarot card deck. Each of the 20 cards represents a list of outcomes for the curious user, some of which are merely unpleasant (loss of hair, breakage, thwarted ambitions), others downright lurid (catarrh, spasms, shriveling). Included is a 32-page booklet which provides interpretations of each card, courtesy of Madame Groeda Weyrd, celebrated author of Floating Tambourines, and The Future Speaks Through Entrails. If you can sift through the impending doom initiated by Gorey’s imagination long enough to find the arcane repository, you may end up with a hoard of timeless esoteric wisdom.
20 (2 1/2 x 4 3/4 inch) cards and a 32-page interpretive booklet in a decorative box.
