About the Author

Jessica Hundley is an author, filmmaker and journalist. She has written for the likes of Vogue, Rolling Stone, and The New York Times, and has authored books on artists including Dennis Hopper, David Lynch, and Gram Parsons. Hundley often explores the counterculture in her work, with a focus on metaphysics, psychedelia, and magic.

Evelin Bürger and Johannes Fiebig have written more than twenty tarot books, which have reached a circulation of over two million copies and have been translated in more than a dozen languages in total. For Evelin and Johannes, the fascination of dealing the tarot derives from three main sources: You learn to use, to understand, and if need be to get through with 1) cultural role models, 2) the power of chance, and 3) a distinct experience of your own kind of view.

Many standards of contemporary tarot have been discovered or created by Bürger and Fiebig, including: the card of the day as the basic practice of the personal, creative use of the cards; the double-face (multiple meanings) of each card and each detail thereof; and the understanding of the individual perception (focus of view, affectedness etc.) of the cards that mirrors the personal perception in everyday life.

Fiebig and Bürger founded the German Königsfurt Verlag in 1989, which became a base of the current Königsfurt-Urania & AGM-Urania publishing companies. They have two adult children and live close to the city of Kiel at the Baltic Sea, Germany.
