Who doesn’t want to run away and join the carnival? Part memoir, part cultural history, part linguistic exploration, The Secret History of Carnival Talk traces the evolution of this curious manner of speech from its origins on the midway to its use by wrestlers, rappers and children at play. The text is accompanied by many fascinating photographs of a Depression-era travelling carnival.

This listing is for:
- a signed copy of The Secret History of Carnival Talk by Sarah Kate Istra Winter (Fær Press, 2014)
- a set of 10 postcards featuring 10 different photographs from the book (from a 1937 carnival)
- a promotional bookmark with an image of the sideshow bally

The book is 8.5" x 8.5", 50 pages, paperback. It will be signed by the author - if you want a special inscription or dedication, please request it in the note to seller on your purchase.

Each postcard measures 4.25" x 5.5" and is printed on recycled cardstock with a matte finish. Varied sepia tones according to the original photographs. Reverse side identifies the photo, with plenty of space to write. These photos are so interesting and detailed, they are suitable for framing!

These items will be shipped by First Class Mail within the U.S. Convo me for international shipping.

Wow. Amazing oracle deck! I choose the 'bag and die' option and I'm very happy that I did because the bag is made of a sturdy material so I know it will last a long time. Also, the print, makes me want to have several more of these bags; and the die - a cute little thing! I only received my package an hour ago so I haven't had time to read the book but I took in a few pages and I can tell that it's a great companion to the cards. As for the cards, they're a perfect fit for my hands..not too large or too small, and they feel really nice. As I was looking through them, I knew I had a made a good decision in purchasing this deck - really great stuff!

The cutest! And so much fun! Great for beginners or for an evening with gfs! But I am sure that you can go much deeper with your cards! Love my purchase!

What do you seek in divination? If light on the practicalities of the day, the week, the month, you'll find that here, clear as day. If a journey deep below, spoken in the fairy tale language you learnt when a journeying child, opening your eyes, your understanding, your soul to all that lives in the Holy Dark, you will find that here, too. So far I've read among other things for a doctor's appointment, what I needed to see in a difficulty with a very dear friend, and where I stand in my life journey and what lies around me, hidden, and what shines to lead me on. This Oracle is an absolute wonder. As it would be, given how it is rooted and the fruit it bears. Don't hesitate if you hear a song. These cards are singing for you.

Unique concept deck and very appealing to my storytelling approach to cartomancy. I've only leafed through the guidebook but landed on a page quoting from one of my favourite storytellers (Seanan McGuire), so obviously I am delighted.
