From the author of Floriography comes a gorgeously illustrated oracle deck and guidebook inspired by the magic of woodland flora and fauna. Drawing on mythology, folklore, and literature, each card in the Woodland Wardens deck features an animal-plant pairing accompanied by a distinct and thoughtful message: the hare and the oak; the finch and the peach; the hawk and the thistle. Each unique combination, brought to life in artist Jessica Roux’s detailed, historically evocative style, transports seekers to another time and place, offering insight, guidance, and an invitation to reflect on the natural world.
