TarotBlogHop: Ancestors Advice

PREVIOUSMASTERNEXT

It’s time for the Tarot Blog Hop again. This time our wrangler is Louise Underhill. She’s challenged us to ask our ancestors for advice for the coming year. Since we are a company rather than an individual, we thought we would ask Pixie to help us out here.

Pixie aka Pamela Colman Smith was the underserved artist of the Rider Waite Tarot. Many now refer to that deck as the Rider Waite Smith Tarot to honor her. We hold her in high regards here.

We decide to honor Pixie by showing off the Pamela Colman Smith Commemorative Tarot as well as Pixie’s Astounding Lenormand.

Her work graced many books including Bram Stoker’s last novel, The Lair of the White Worm. Her cousin, William Gillette (known for his work acting as Sherlock Holmes), collected some of her work. You can see them at his home, his castle actually, in Connecticut.

Here are some images from the Commemorative set.

Next images from Pixe’s Astounding Lenormand. This features images found in the Smith-Waite® Tarot deck and “The Golden Vanity”.

  4. Pamela Coleman Smith is perhaps my top pick of deceased person I would like to have dinner with. Thanks for the castle tip too, I’ll have to give it a looksie next time I’m in CT.
