    Paul Huson is a British-born author and artist currently living in the United States. In addition to writing books about occultism and witchcraft, he has worked extensively in the film and television industries. studied the Qabalah and the Western Esoteric Tradition with Dion Fortune's Society of the Inner Light, as well as working with the American Society for Psychical Research the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and the Stella Matutina. While Paul has authored many notable titles, he is best known for the influential Mastering Witchcraft, Mystical Origins of the Tarot, Dame Fortune's Wheel Tarot deck and Dame Fortune’s Wheel Tarot: A Pictorial Key. 

Paul Huson’s Dame Fortune’s Wheel Tarot illustrates for the first time the earliest, traditional tarot card interpretations collected by Jean-Baptiste Alliette, aka Etteilla, a Parisian fortune-teller. Unlike other modern decks, the images are unadorned by the occult speculations of Mathers, Waite, or Crowley.

This book is a pictorial companion to the deck. In addition to detailed descriptions of the cards’ symbolism and significance–with both upright and reversed meanings–Dame Fortune’s Wheel Tarot provides meticulous full-color reproductions of Huson’s original designs for all 79 cards, including an extra Significator card specified by Etteilla that may be used optionally, and full instructions for how to lay out the cards for divination.
