ABOUT THE BOOK OF MAPS
A Witchy High School Social Studies Textbook…
The companion guidebook to the deck, titled the Book of Maps, is a 700-page reference manual explaining the characters, world, and cultures depicted on the cards. The text will cover cosmology, ontology, historical religious practices, and explanations of the symbols featured. Citations to the sources I consulted will also be provided in the end notes.
Basically, it’s a witchy social studies textbook. These are the world cultures and history lessons the high school budding witch would have wanted.
The following excerpts will give you a good idea of what will be covered in the Book of Maps:
- Key 0: The Keeper, featuring Asherah. In Ugaritic texts, The Great Lady Athirat, mother of gods
- Key 2: The Priestess appearing as a Sumerian gala priestess of Inanna
- Three of Chalices, featuring seiðkonur of Viking Age Scandinavia
- Four of Chalices invoking both Kuan Yin and Serket and depicting Korean Buddhist sitting meditation
- Nine of Scepters with Hekate-Ereshkigal in Uruk, Sumer and the Nine of Swords with Hekate-Ereshkigal as Mother (Hesiod’s Theogony, the Orphic Hymns, and the Greek Magical Papyri)
- Archangel Commander channeled through a 14th century Templar Knight
- Ace of Orbs and a vision of Mariam, mother of Jesus of Nazareth, and the SATOR acrostic

- Gilded edging on decks is produced through a process that crushes gold-toned plates into fine grain and then that fine grain, a gold dust, is applied to the cardstock edges under high pressure and heat until it is sealed onto the stock. Some fall-out is inevitable. We cannot guarantee that there won’t be some fall-out with your gilded edges. Furthermore, note that harsh shuffling and handling of the cards might wear down the gilding.
