A Highland Seer: Tea-Cup Reading and Fortune-Telling by Tea Leaves, v.1, 14 June 2008

From Wikipedia:
Tasseography (also known as tasseomancy or tassology) is a divination or fortune-telling method that interprets patterns in tea leaves, coffee grounds, or wine sediments. The terms derive from the French word tasse (cup), which in turn derives from the Arabic tassa (cup), and the Greek suffixes -graph, -logy, and -mancy (divination). The practice of tea leaf reading originated independently in Asia, the Middle East and Ancient Greece. Scotland, Ireland, and England have produced a number of practitioners and authors on the subject, and English potteries have crafted many beautiful tea cup sets specially designed and decorated to aid in fortune-telling. Cultures of the Middle East that practice divination in this fashion usually use left-over coffee grounds from Turkish coffee turned over onto a plate.
:tongue firmly in cheek: This is a sedimental work by A. Highland Seer (the slightly shorter twin brother of A. Lowland Seer) and was found in the dregs of Gutenberg. I love the illustrations but I believe there is an error in the interpretation of Figure 1 in Chapter V. I think that's Cthulhu and a couple of puddle ducks and that clearly must mean that the turner should wear a baby blue sailor outfit if he also wants to get to see the lambs and have ice cream on his birthday, too. I intend to faithfully learn this practice in order to accurately predict the outcome of Pshrynk's election when it happened.
