It feels like amazing decks have been getting most of the attention over the past few years. In the coming year, 2019, we have quite a number of great new books, in addition to some absolutely lovely new decks.
For those of you who loved the Kitchen Table Tarot by Melissa Cynova, you will be happy to hear that her next book will be available in Winter 2019.
