• TAROT OF MARSEILLE MILLENNIUM EDITION •
by Wilfried Houdouin, Marseille, France, 2022
The result of 22 years of research and work, this new edition of the complete deck (first edition of the 22 Major Arcana in 2011), after the 2017 edition and the “Mini-Millennium” version in 2020, is considered by the author as a culmination. Indeed, a few small corrections remained to be made so that this complete regeneration of the 78 Arcana of the Marseille Tarot, based on an in-depth study of the historical tarots and on the rediscovery, never before seen, of their original sacred geometry, would be totally coherent and representative of the true Tarot de Marseille tradition. These fundamental works allowed the author, a graphic artist who has been practicing the Tarot for more than thirty years, to carry out, in Marseille, a complete regeneration of this philosophical deck, thus restoring the cards as they were essentially, before undergoing these last three centuries of increasingly important alterations, whether it is on the level of the precision of the tracings and the restitution of the details, that of the colors, the framing and the direction of the orientation of the icons. Continuing a centuries-old tradition of symbolic tarot production by Master Cardmakers in the oldest city in France and one of the largest tarot production centers in Europe, this edition – 100% produced in Marseille – fully restores the authentic traditional Tarot de Marseille, thus perpetuating, in the third millennium, the transmission of its precious initiatory legacy.
