While working on the new edition of Timothy Leary’s “The Game of Life,” I designed updated versions of his tarot trump cards, which I ended up not submitting, so as to not further complicate and delay the book’s chaotic production.
22 of the 24 cards feature grey-scale digital restorations of Pamela Colman Smith’s artwork from the Rider-Waite tarot deck. (Which I hereby release to the public domain! Because it was a bear cleaning up all those cards, and no one need do it again.)
The other 2 cards were designed by me, pictured above, per Leary’s descriptions.
And so without further ado, presenting: The Game of Life Tarot Cards
Timothy Leary’s reinterpretation of the Major Arcana as a mythic 24-stage model of evolution.
