The Family Arcana - A Story in Cards by Jedediah Berry
Ninepin Press // 2015
Shuffle, cut, play, read. A story about a haunted family, published as a poker deck and written to be read a near infinite number of ways.
“The Family Arcana” is the portrait of a sprawling family bound to their decaying farmhouse by a web of passions and strange obsessions. Each shuffle of the deck reveals a new pattern of secrets, confessions, troubles, indictments, and dreams. The family grows, shrinks, and changes, trapped forever in its haunted house of cards.
