I received some money and decided to buy myself a treat other than a book on the history of toile fabric. This book is a gorgeous thing but it’s not a card deck.
Intrigued by Andrea Aste’s The Lost Code of the Tarot because of the fantastically fresh artwork, stories and all the alchemy and history, I ordered it. The only Marseille deck I own is a little-fancied deck by Il Meneghello called Classico Tarocco di Marsiglia, whose Hermit inspired my interest some years ago.
Along with the deck kit I ordered two books on Marseille reading traditions.
Milestone birthdays need to be celebrated with art and story and the whole panoply of history.
Plus you can have a bowl of ice cream and maybe some rhubarb crumble with strawberries and apples.
