The Le Moyne Tarot is an obsessively researched love letter to the greatest storytelling tool ever created. The 22 Major Arcana cards can help with gaining insight into existence, or simply be enjoyed as a subconsciously familiar art piece. Each illustration is steeped in dense, cross referenced symbolism; enough symbolism to overwhelm your intuition for multiple lifetimes. The Tarot is better than any comic book. It's even better than Maus. This version in particular pays homage to the 17th century Marseille Tarot decks, as well as the more esoteric decks which emerged in the early 20th century. It comes with a booklet of condensed explanations of the artist's interpretations and source materials ranging from Gertrude Moakley to Carl Jung and all the significant names in-between.
This set comes with all 22 Major Arcana tarot cards, and a booklet with descriptions for each card written by Jesse Moynihan. The set is an edition of 1000 and will come hand numbered by the artist.
Decks will be shipped the week of June 27th following the opening of Jesse Moynihan's exhibit at Heavy Manners Library.
