Passing the time over the fall break with my family in a cabin in the Swedish woods, I had the idea to create an oracle deck of cards, based on several timeless sources of wisdom – one being, of course, the Major Arcana of the Tarot.
After casting about for suitably oracular material among the available ancient grimoires and spell books to create a dialogue with the Tarot, I settled on a proven text that always delivers a powerful punch-line, at least when looking at the moral of the tale: Aesop’s Fables!
Here is what I then made the family circus do: We divided the 22 major arcana cards between us, and for each card we found a corresponding page in the book of Fables. We then rolled some dice to determine what specific line we would read in conjunction with the card. And voilà! The MARSEILLE FABLES was created with a Greek punch.
These cards are sold as a talismanic object. At checkout, make a wish, and I will personalize a sigil for you on the title card.
