An intergenerational collaboration featuring 78 papercut images from Ruth West's 1984 Thea's Tarot deck, coupled with author Oliver Pickle's contemporary queer interpretations of each card. Tarot, among other occult practises, is enjoying a resurgence in queer communities, but its practitioners often find themselves revising interpretative texts to fit their realities. By embracing an older deck and similtaneously developing current and re-visioned ways of interpreting its images and the cards' meanings in general, She is Sitting in the Night provides an informed, aesthetically strong accessible queer tarot book for feminists, queers, and tarot readers old and new.
