Of everything I looked ah while compiling my annual Halloween clow=out, nothing disturbed me as much as this. Did you own these cards and think, like I did, that they would explain all mysteries? A talisman of some other realm? The disquieting expectations and memories of childhood are the most magical and terrifying emotions of all.

Happy Halloween to all!

    The reviews on Amazon do consider the Gypsy Witch cards to be full of portent, both good and bad.

    That is a beautiful old illustration. But just to be clear, since it is not widely known in the Ameticas, “gypsy” is a derogatory epithet for Romani people. Hundreds of thousands were killed in the German holocaust and today they face persecution in almost every European country. I know these comments threads get heated and I didn’t want to write this here… I just respect the work done here and want it to be a place where everyone can come and read about comics, even old problematic comics, with their proper context in mind.
