8 of the Most Beautiful Tapestries in the World! (Part of the TAROT blog tour by Marissa Kennerson!

Today we are super excited to be a part of the TAROT blog tour! Thank you so much again to Penguin Teen for reaching out to us about this amazing opportunity. In a world where Anna was born by a forbidden union, she is locked in a tower and is promised to be released on her sixteenth birthday. Anna creates beautiful and unique tapestries of creators and dreamers, which is the exact opposite of what the King believes in. For our blog tour stop we decided to do a list of 8 of the most famous and beautiful tapestries in the world! 

1. Apocalypse Tapestry (1377-1382)

2. Boar and Bear Hunt, The Devonshire Hunting Tapestries, late 1420s

3. The Hunt of the Unicorn, The Start of the Hunt, circa 1500

4. The Lady and the Unicorn, Late 15th Century 

5. Bayeux Tapestry (1470s)

(This is just one scene from the tapestry, we couldn't find a picture of the whole thing sadly.) 

6. The Miraculous Draught of Fishes, early 18th Century

7. Holy Grail Tapestries, 1898–99

8. We Are Living on a Star, 1958

Aren't all of those tapestries beautiful? We aren't historians by an means so the dates and the names may not be 100% correct, but we did try are best to cross check them with multiple sources!

Summary: Anna was never supposed to exist. Born of a forbidden union between the Queen and the tyrannical King’s archnemesis, Anna is forced to live out her days isolated in the Tower, with only her mentors and friends the Hermit, the Fool, and the Magician to keep her company. To pass the time, Anna imagines unique worlds populated by creatives and dreamers—the exact opposite of the King’s land of fixed fates and rigid rules—and weaves them into four glorious tapestries. But on the eve of her sixteenth birthday and her promised release from the Tower, Anna discovers her true lineage: She’s the daughter of Marco, a powerful magician, and the King is worried that his magical gifts are starting to surface in Anna. Fearing for her life, Anna flees the Tower and finds herself in Cups, a lush, tropical land full of all the adventure, free-spiritedness, and creativity she imagined while weaving. Anna thinks she’s found paradise in this world of beachside parties, endless food and drink, and exhilarating romance. But when the fabric of Cups begins to unravel, Anna discovers that her tapestries are more than just decoration. They’re the foundation for a new world that she is destined to create—as long as the terrors from the old world don’t catch up with her first.
