After our early experiments (see at the right side) to install a Tarot News system we start another, now with an own domain for the news a-tarot.eu. For the moment it has only a single major article ...
... though splitted in many small articles with the option to view Tarot scenes in Tarot movies, sometimes only small snippets, occasionally longer. If you wish to see or read this collection, you probably have hours or days to watch. We present this in a new form, from which we assume, that our readers might enjoy it, in the "Don't click too much" way. Well, we guess, you'll understand it sooner or later. Just click the link, if you wish to know more.
Some short News,
especially about us and our old friends and cooperators
- Trionfi.com has updated parts of the Tarot Museum, especially Iconography section, the general
Playing Cards Museum, now with 10.000 decks, and the views on the Mantegna Tarocchi and the Iconographic articles of Andrea Vitali are worth a visit.
- The cooperation between Trionfi.com and Associazione Le Tarot>, webpage of Andrea Vitali, has increased, now writers of trionfi.com as Alain Bougearel and Ross Caldwell and also the webpage of Trionfi.com got their representation in the Associazione Le Tarot.
Andrea Vitali has updated (and strongly improved) his webpage, now at a new domain Letarot.it and in a two language version Italian/English. His extensive writing to Tarot Iconography is also included on our website. In June 2010 a new Tarot exhibition in Turin organized by Andrea Vitali will start, more informations will be given here and at other places.
- The biographic pages to Tarot and Playing Card Researchers by autorbis have developed, meanwhile an impressive list, though not complete, naturally.
- Ross Caldwell has started a blog Ludus Triumphorum (great work and of some importance: Juego de Naipes update and Spanish "Single Trump" Game), also did our best critical voice Michael J. Hurst with Pre Gebelin Tarot History. Of special interest might be his article to the Leber-Rouen-Tarot and the connected Witless Warrior.
- Bonnie Cehovet has written her final newsletter planning to make her future with altered activities. Good luck.
- Still or again active Jess Karlin, the old hero of the early Internet battles in matters of Tarot, is now at the domain Tarotica.com, presenting there besides his worthful Tarot News contributions the especially loved Tarotmania map and Tarotmania (as article August 2009).
- Our Italian friend Marco expanded his corpus of translated texts, recently the Discorso sopra l'ordine delle figure dei Tarocchi (Discourse about the order of the images of Tarot), written by Francesco Piscina in 1565 was translated.
- Tarotpedia, once established by Jean-Michel David and Robert Mealing, has expanded to become one of the major works of the Tarot community.
- Robert's Mealing Tarot History forum has recently won the favor of Tarot Historians in the web, especially as the older meeting places at Aclectic has missed to modernize to the special interests of Tarot History - this, although Aeclectic is filled with a lot of our own contributions and naturally a big place for the interests of the Tarot Community. It's a pity, that a better cooperation seems not possible.
- Adam McLean has founded another place: a Forum for Tarot collectors
- Michael S. Howard has developed to an interesting talking partner in matters of Tarot History. His most interesting contributions are possibly "Michelino to Cary/Yale to Visconti/Sforza",
"15th Century Tarot" and "22 Invocations of Dionysus"
- Mary Greer, author of many Tarot books and still active in the forums, also has opened a blog blog. One of her best contributions was the A Timeline of the Occult and Divinatory Tarot from 1750 to 1980, recently she collected Charles Williams: "The greater Trumps" reviewed by Paul Nagy, which might be of greater interest.
- Douglas Gibb at Taroteon.com and Paul Hughes Barlowe at supertarot.co.uk and Catherine Chapman at Tarotelements.com present at their pages Tarot News Blogs, focussed on modern Tarot developments. Tarot History - more or less - is missing, but who knows, perhaps once in the future ...
