    ABitMoreHistory

    Long before Lenormand and Tarot, there was a craze, (a little like theLenormand,whichisnowhavingasecondrenaissanceinEnglish),forfortunebooks. These oracular books contained a variety of verses, giving bothquestionsandanswers forall likelypredicaments.Theywere consultedbyarangeofmeans;bycastingdice,bypullingthreadsfastenedtovariouspages,byturningapaperwheelembedded inthebook,bycountingthenumberoflettersinyourname,andofcourse,bydrawingcards.
