The Major and Minor Arcana of The Tarot by Jon Towers.
On May 4th 2019... It had been a goal of mine for years. Starting in 2003 I did a series of comic books called "The Non-standard Assembly". One of the themes of those books is the use of tarot cards. So I was versed in them and their imagery.
For the show I had down some episodes regarding The Tarot of the Bohemian's by Papus and the works of Waite and Mathers regarding the Tarot Cards. I really liked the way that Papus explained how the different suits and arcana's of the cards related to each other and how the mechanics of the cards were structured.
The Yod, He (1), Vau, He (2) structure fascinated me and relating the suites to the elements and the principles of; masculine, feminine, neuter and transition are all part of the key!
So I did it, I made the commitment to build my own set of cards! And one of the first things I worked on was to figure out how to encode this information of the back of the cards.
After over a year of toiling away on my tarot card project it was completed on May 16 2020.
One of the fun things I decided to do was add an aspect of collage to the Minor Arcana, meaning that I encoded the alchemical symbol of the element associated with each of the suites if you laid the cards out in numerical order. (Which there is no reason to do this if using the cards for divination).
