Minor Arcana Press proudly presents Arcana: The Tarot Poetry Anthology, edited by Marjorie Jensen. This is the first multi-contributor poetry anthology dedicated to the Tarot, featuring 78 poems, over 50 contributors, and gorgeous cover and interior art by Siolo Thompson (creator of the Linestrider Tarot).

The 78 cards of the Tarot mean many things to many people-a game, a fortune telling oracle, a powerful spiritual guide. Arcana: The Tarot Poetry Anthology celebrates the Tarot as muse: enchanting, inspiring, and empowering. With this groundbreaking new book, Minor Arcana Press seeks to unite poetry readers with Tarot readers and celebrate the power of each.

Editor Marjorie Jensen has brought together some of the most invigorating poets of our time, an international community including Rachel Pollack, CAConrad, Tanya Joyce, Tony Barnstone, Cecilia Llompart, Sierra Nelson, Shloka Shankar, and Teofilo Folengo.
