as I mentioned before, has been out a while. Still, the artist is one I like a lot: Antonella Platano. She also drew two of my personal favourites - the Gay Tarot, and the Wheel of the Year Tarot - as well as the Witches Tarot (Hip Witch) and the Universal Goddess Tarot (also fun decks).
In the Tarot of the 78 Doors (Lo Scarabeo, 2005),
the content of the cards is traditionally RWS, though the actual
imagery and symbolism are not. For instance, in the Lovers we have a
gypsy telling the fortune of a young man, as his lady love stands by.
Is she predicting a different choice for him, or helping confirm the
path he has chosen?
I also really like that the Knight of Cups in this
deck seems female (there is also one female Page, though not of Cups). This
Knight of Cups is a confident woman in blue armour, who
turns her horse to pass through the cloak of a waterfall, into a dark
cave. A cleansing outpouring of emotion, powerful though sometimes
superficial, and a willingness to face the depths of her unconscious.
Finally, we have the
Three of Pentacles to represent the Minors. Plenty of craftsmanship
here, with a joiner making a variety of different yet beautiful doors.
Not so much of teamwork, though, unless you take a broader perspective:
what is a door without a house around it? :)
