About this product
- DescriptionThe Minchiate is one of the most unique decks ever to emerge from the centuries old Tarot tradition. In the first modern presentation of this divinatory system, artist and writer Brian Williams explains the allegorical, esoteric and symbolic meanings of this expanded deck that, t only includes cards for each of the astrological signs, but also for the four elements and several additional figures in the major arcana. Although those familiar with the traditional Tarot will recognise many of the cards of the Minchiate, even Tarot aficionados will be surprised and delighted by the many striking differences, such as the knights who are w transformed into mythical beasts or the Chariot card on which the armoured warrior has been replaced by a peaceful maiden. Brian Williams' insightful interpretations of the cards, based on his extensive kwledge of the Tarot and Italian history, enable readers to use this deck as a tool for profound self-exploration and transformation. One of the most popular Italian Tarots, the Minchiate served as the basis for many of the famous decks before fading into obscurity during the nineteenth century. Now this important Tarot, reformulated with the author's extensive commentary and subtle interpretations of the original art, is finally again available for modern readers and devotees of the Tarot.
- Author BiographyBrian Williams has written and illustrated numerous Tarot decks, among which are<i>The Renaissance Tarot, The PoMo </i>(Postmodern) <i>Tarot</i>, and, along with artist Michael Goepferd, <i>The Light and Shadow Tarot</i>.
