Nyt saatavilla todella harvinaista herkkua. Tosi tarotharrastajan must-have kirjat. Stuart R. Kaplanin kokoama ja U.S. Games Systemsin julkaisema Tarotin järkälemäinen encyclopedia ja sen kaikki osat on tietosanakirja jossa esitellään aivan käsittämätön määrä tarotkortteja aikojen alusta tähän päivään.

Vol 1. on edelleen uutenakin saatavilla ja kakkostakin löytyy kohtuu hyvin, mutta jostain kummallisesta ja selittämättömästä syystä 3 ja 4 alkavat olla todella harvinaisia ja vaikeita löytää. Erityisesti nelosesta on tullut eräänlainen graalin malja löytää.

Tarotpuodin hankintaosasto on kaivanut oman kirjastonsa niteiden lisäksi yhden kokonaisen ja huippukuntoisen setin tarjolle.

Näitä ei todellakaan ole helppoa löytää...

Stuart R. Kaplan and Jean Huets | U.S. Games Systems, Stamford, CT

“If you love the tarot, if you are passionate about art… Volume IV [of the Encyclopedia of Tarot] will not only entice you to keep reading but will capture your attention for days as you peruse its pages and discover not only new cards but aspects of the tarot brought together by Jean Huets to further your study.” — Timeless Spirit magazine

Artists, occultists, collectors, and art historians find inspiration in The Encylopedia of Tarot. Lavishly illustrated with thousands of decks from all over the world, each volume stands alone, while adding to the story of the tarot as told over the centuries.

Volume I: An overall view of tarot and its history–and alternative histories.

In the first major reference work of its kind, this comprehensive volume traces the history and origins of the earliest extant tarot, tarocchi, and tarock decks. Written with authority, and sharing a wealth of information, Kaplan's chronological presentation takes readers from the earliest hand-painted cards, through the historical developments of printed cards, and surveys twentieth century tarot interests.

Included are discussions and photographs of 3,200 cards from decks dating from the 15th to the 20th century, plus 100 references to the origins of tarot and playing cards. Annotated bibliography of over 1,700 entries.

Volume II: The late medieval / early Renaissance roots of tarot. Medieval symbolism of the trumps (Major Arcana). Antique decks from 15th through 19th centuries. Tarock. Identifying and dating tarot cards by back designs, makers’ marks, tax stamps, etc. 

Volume III: Tarot in the 20th century–from teddy bears to “cat people” to Renaissance. Includes a biography of visionary artist Pamela Colman Smith, illustrated with her tarot and nontarot artwork.  

Volume IV: Wide-ranging interpretations of tarot in published and unpublished decks, mostly 20th and early 21st century. Special sections on Japanese decks, Rider-Waite decks, Tarot of Marseilles, and Egyptian-inspired tarots.
