By kind permission of the British Museum, London, edited by Alexander Glueck. The game was conceived by Johann Kaspar Hechtel and published in Nuremberg in 1799 as a parlour game. This is where we meet all the characters seen later in the Lenormand cards: the rider, the stork, the mice, the fish, etc. The booklet includes the historic game rules and instructions how to read this oracle today.
Finally available in English! A perfect companion to the Mystical Lenormand cards. In this book, Regula Elizabeth Fiechter describes the images and the interpretations of each card and explains how combinations affect the interpretation. Though tips and suggestions are provided, the reader’s own stimulated intuition is used to supply a successful and helpful interpretation. For animal lovers, the Mystical Lenormand is especially attractive—each card carries the image of at least one animal. The Mystical Lenormand is modelled on cards which were used by Marie-Anne Lenormand, a prominent and popular French seeress of the 19th century.
