When many people think of a tarot deck, the Rider deck, by Arthur Eward Waite and Pamela Colman Smith comes to mind. British tarotists Marcus Katz and Tali Goodwin are involved in a project to bring Waite’s other tarot deck, executed by artist John Trinick, back to life. I had the privilege of seeing projections of the images when I was at the Omega Institute in July. They’re stunning! They still haunt me. Depicting Waite’s “hidden” Qabalistic correspondences, used by the Order he founded after leaving the original Golden Dawn group, they don’t come off as technical and high-falutin’; the art really invites one to take part in the Mystery.
