She Is Sitting in the Night: Re-visioning Thea's Tarot
By Oliver Pickle; Art by Ruth West
An intergenerational collaboration featuring 78 papercut images from Ruth West's 1984 Thea's Tarot deck, coupled with author Oliver Pickle's contemporary queer interpretations of each card.
Tarot, among other occult practices, is enjoying a resurgence in queer communities, but its practitioners often find themselves revising interpretative texts to fit their realities.
By embracing an older deck and simultaneously developing current and re-visioned ways of interpreting its images and the cards' meanings in general, She Is Sitting in the Night, provides an informed, aesthetically strong, accessible book for feminists, queers, and tarot readers new and old.
