Mushrooms have existed for millennia, which can make it overwhelming to dip into mycology. Used throughout human history for food, medicine and expanding the consciousness, fungi has shaped the planet and the past, appearing everywhere from fairy tales and health food stores to The X-Files. There’s an entire universe of fungi, much of which is yet to be discovered. To read about the basics, The Deck of Mushrooms features 50 types, including the glowing ghost fungus, the giant Chi-Ngulu-Ngulu, the sky-blue pinkgill and the trooping crumble cap. On each of these 50 beautifully illustrated cards, learn about a different fungi’s habitat, their uses, and their history to become a budding expert in mycology.
