Debut novel by Karen Engelmann, set in 18th century Sweden, featuring Jost Amman cards... looks very interesting

http://www.goodreads.com/interviews/...tent=engelmann

BTW... as I was getting ready to post this, I bought the book, and a Meneghello reproduction of Jost Amman cards. One thing leading to another...a routine email led to a new (to me) author (Engelmann), to a new (to me) artist (Amman).

Oh those cards ARE pretty. Playing cards, though, I think ? (*must not be tempted; car repair was just horribly expensive...*)

But where did you find them ?

I just saw this book today, and wondered if there was a thread on it. It does look interesting, will be keeping an eye on this to see what you all think.
