The Cartomancer is a quarterly journal just released this year. Its debut, the Summer 2015 issue was a huge hit. The only reason I’d heard of the magazine was because everyone I knew was buzzing on about it. The above is the Autumn 2015 issue.
You can buy each issue as an e-zine for $5.00 or the hard copy for $10.00. It’s worth the $10.00. The quality of the print magazine is spectacular, with heavy paper stock, vibrant colors, and absolutely stunning graphic design and layout. These are collectibles. A complete set of all printed issues of The Cartomancer is going to be worth something someday.
Setting aside the materialist reasons why this magazine rocks my world, check out the table of contents for Issue 2, the Autumn 2015 issue. You’re going to want to order your copy. Plus, your order goes toward supporting an awesome independent publishing house run by people who are passionate about tarot and working hard at making a living out of their passion! You’re supporting the very community that supports your tarot studies.
Just look at the meaty, juicy content in the Featured Articles section. You’ve got informative articles for your professional practice as a cartomancer (I’m looking at you, Jenna Matlin) and educational pieces to deepen your understanding and knowledge of tarot.
In the above image file of the table of contents, you can also see the Mission Statement for the publication.
There is so much quality content packed densely into each issue. My scans are terrible; apologies. The art and photography pages are stunning. In the Autumn, 2015 issue, I contributed a deck review for Kabbalistic Visions. You’ll have to order the magazine to read it! 😉
I was surprised and delighted to find Bonnie Cehovet’s review of Holistic Tarot! I got the great honor to meet Bonnie at SFBATS this year.
