Queen of wands

The Queen of Wands is a character from the Tarot deck symbolizing the sympathetic and understanding person. Here it is interpreted as it relates to women printers and artists. The text is inspired by historical work on the woman surrealist Leonora Carrington, and her relationship with Remedios Varo. Based on research done by Gloria Orenstein, Whitney Chadwich and Janet Kaplan.
