The history of
reads like an adventure novel. It was a French Tarot originally written by Francis Rolt-Wheeler and artist Christian Loring but published in the fateful year of 1939. Following the fall of France in June 1940, it seems not to have survived, and few copies of the original remain. Caitlín Matthews has translated and edited Rolt-Wheeler’s text and written new material for this beautiful Tarot, whose art has been painstakingly restored by renowned artist Wil Kinghan.
has a luminous, dreamlike, medieval setting, with fully illustrated 22 Major Arcana, 16 Court Cards, and 40 Pip cards in the suits of Cups, Swords, Scepters (Wands), and Shekels (Coins). Each card explores the symbolic, initiatic, Kabbalistic, numerological, astrological, and divinatory significances, to nourish the spiritual life. The historical and magical context of this extraordinary deck is rooted in the Oswald Wirth school of Tarot, and Caitlín has provided new ways of using the cards that give meditational paths to explore it in a deeper way. This is a Tarot whose time has come, and an inward adventure of a lifetime is waiting in the cards.
