E.A. Poe's Spirits of the Dead
A deck of seance cards with a dark secret.
Lift the veil and contact the dead with this elegantly designed deck of seance cards, uniquely rooted in the literary themes of Edgar Allan Poe. More than mere alphabet and number cards, SPIRITS of the DEAD will allow you to make contact through the imagery, themes and the very words of Poe’s works. Perhaps you will contact the author himself.
The cards are printed on 310gsm, linen stock and feature gothic woodcuts, renaissance etchings and old fashioned dark art in a starkly beautiful black and white. Glass moving, planchette, even a pendulum seance in the palm of your hand, SPIRITS of the DEAD seance cards are ready to help you create a performance anywhere. Use them to create; traditional seances, dark readings, ambience, explorations into haunted literature, spirit slates, mind reading routines, or as an unforgettable finale to an evening of Poe-themed effects.
Nine strategically marked cards will unlock startling “face down” revelations from the other side. The marking system is subtle and devious and allows the medium to reveal messages and themes at a glance. This system can easily be extended and applied to the entire deck to allow the performer customized control and freedom to develop personal routines. Edgar Allan Poe’s SPIRITS of the DEAD seance cards are a theatrical utility and dark tool for any mystery performer.
