Falnama is the name of a genre used in Turkish and Iranian literature and hails from the seventeenth century's Islamic traditions. Inspired by a book at Topkapi Palace Museum presented to Sultan I. Ahmed, the Falnama was used by oracles, miniaturized in vignette workshops, and written by Turkish and Persian poets of that era.

This version uses 40 beautifully illustrated cards with traditional imagery that is re-illustrated with contemporary perspectives. Keywords on the cards and short stories written as poems in the guidebook present modern interpretations, giving readers answers to their important questions, or wishes, in an easy-to-understand format. Using unique combination spreads, one can view an issue of the day, make short-term and ordinary decisions, find past-present-future solutions, and acquire advice that relates to each card topic.

Suitable for beginning and advanced readers.
