"The Creative Tarot . . . playfully reinvents the arcane Renaissance-inspired cards."--Elle magazine
"Maybe you don't think astrology or tarot or anything like that is anything more than a case of people falling prey to confirmation bias in order to better figure out who they are. Well, get over yourself and let Crispin enchant you with this beautiful and oftentimes surprising look into the intertwining of tarot and the creative process."
"Readers seeking creative inspiration will find this to be one of the most accessible books ever written on the subject."--Library Journal (starred review)
"Crispin presents a persuasive case for the tarot's usefulness to writers and artists; her many insights into the creative life as well as her dazzlingly wide array of examples throughout make this a valuable reference for readers not remotely interested in the 'psychic arts.'"--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Even readers with no previous interest in the tarot will be intrigued and delighted by Crispin's ardently researched, spirited, creative, and inspiring elucidation."--Booklist
