The Game of Saturn book launch at Treadwell’s

Treadwell’s Bookshop, London · Saturday 1 April 2017

Join us for the launch of The Game of Saturn at Treadwell’s bookshop in London. The Game of Saturn by Peter Mark Adams is the first full length, scholarly study of the enigmatic Renaissance masterwork the Sola-Busca tarot. It reveals a previously unsuspected pagan liturgical and ritual tradition active amongst members of Europe’s fifteenth century elite, grown out of the influence of the pagan Byzantine philosopher Plethon. 

If you have pre-ordered the title directly from us, email us at to be added to the guest list for free entry to the event. Please act promptly, as space is limited. Those who wish to purchase the book from Treadwell’s should book their place through the bookshop’s website.

Doors open at 7pm with a half hour talk beginning at 7.30pm in which Peter Mark-Adams will outline his remarkable discoveries about this enigmatic tarocchi deck and the Renaissance culture and beliefs that informed its creation. The evening will continue with drinks and socialising until 9.30pm. A rare opportunity to meet the author, and a chance to socialise and discuss the mysteries of the Sola-Busca tarot.
