Product Description:

In the spring of 2013 a seventy-nine-card hand-painted tarot deck created c.1906 by the mystic and artist Austin Osman Spare was identified within the collections of The Magic Circle Museum in London.Austin Spare's lifelong interest in cartomancy is well documented yet very few of his own fortune-telling cards were thought to have survived. This compelling new example of the artist's early work demonstrates his precocious involvement with the currents that shaped the British Occult Revival at the beginning of the twentieth century and his interactions with some of the period's artistic and political protagonists including Aleister Crowley Arthur Ivey Sylvia Pankhurst and Pamela Colman Smith. Magic Circle Museum curator and artist Jonathan Allen set about tracing the deck's provenance its place in the artist's oeuvre and within the wider histories of cartomancy potentially re-writing the history of popular Tarot in the early twentieth century. Lost Envoy reproduces Austin Spare's tarot deck in its entirety for the first time alongside new written and visual contributions from Jonathan Allen Phil Baker Helen Farley Alan Moore Kevin O'Neill Sally O'Reilly and Gavin Semple.
