About this product

A unique playing card deck based on the authentic traditions, folklore, and superstitions of Appalachia. This deck can be used as a regular poker deck, or by studying the booklet, one can learn the way that backwoods folk used playing cards for divination.

For centuries, people living in Appalachia have used homemade playing cards for fortune-telling and dream interpretation. This tradition has arisen over many generations of backwoods conjurers, grannie witches, and yarb doctors.

The Conjure Cards fortune-telling deck was created by Jake Richards (author of Backwoods Witchcraft) and fashioned after the folklore, superstitions, and dream symbols that he grew up with in western North Carolina. Jake offers these common Appalachian methods of divination paired with the honored pastime of sharing and interpreting dreams.

Examples:

The Nine of Diamonds shows a headless rooster; to dream of a headless animal is a sign of a haint or plat-eye, which is a spirit who didn't have proper burial.
The Ace of Spades, usually named the death card, is an old-fashioned baby cradle because to dream of a birth predicts a death.

Product details:

  • Rigid box with small booklet included
  • Cards are on uncoated stock, tanned like antique cardboard
  • Card dimensions are 2.75" x 4.25"
  • Printed in China
  • Published by Weiser Books
