Description

Lost for almost a century, Susan and the Mermaid is the rediscovered tale of a magic ring, an underwater kingdom, and a wise old woman who knew how to make her granddaughter’s dreams come true. It’s a tale that rivals "Alice in Wonderland" for imagination ... and it was written and illustrated by Pamela Colman Smith, whose own life story reads like a work of fiction. Smith was an author, artist, and storyteller who divided her time between London, New York, and the island of Jamaica. During the early 1900s, she traveled with some of the world’s most famous writers and performers, including poet and playwright William Butler Yeats, popular actress Ellen Terry (the Elizabeth Taylor of her day), and Bram Stoker, the author of "Dracula." Smith published three books by the time she was twenty, and her work won critical acclaim around the world. True fame and fortune eluded her, though, and she died virtually unknown in 1951.

Twenty years after her death, however, an old card deck she created was republished, and millions of modern tarot enthusiasts were welcomed into Smith’s world of magic, mystery, and metaphysics. Susan and the Mermaid offers a new and unexpected glimpse into that realm, where the border between reality and fantasy blurs, and ethereal creatures lead ordinary people into extraordinary adventures. This story first appeared in the Christmas 1912 edition of "The Delineator," a magazine for mothers and their children. This version reproduces the original text and images, just as they looked at the time. This book also takes the discovery a step further, by offering a close-up look at the dozens of full-color illustrations Smith painted to accompany the story. Susan and the Mermaid is a treasure recovered from the vaults of history. It's a gift from the past, from an artist who lives on in the words and pictures she left behind.

Corrine Kenner is the author of several books, including Tarot for Writers, Tarot Journaling, Simple Fortunetelling with Tarot Cards, and Tall Dark Stranger: Tarot for Love and Romance. She's also the creator of the Epicurean Tarot, the Christmas Tarot, and the Wizards Tarot deck and book set. She lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
