Tarot Deck - 78 Cards

Published by Fournier

Among eastern European countries, Poland "leads the pack" as a producer of fascinating and original tarots. One of the earliest 78-card Polish decks was the celebrated Tarot Magow. Appealingly colorful and full of deep, Hermetic symbolism, the Magow was first brought to the attention of a larger, worldwide audience when K. Frank Jensen documented jws_TMit in his celebrated publication, Manteia. In issue #7, pg. 29, Jensen writes: "While many modern tarot decks have moved away from the hermetic/esoteric contents towards a more psychological and neo pagan attitude (if they have any attitude at all), this deck does, even if the art style is modern and different, have a content, that makes it a workable tool for the practicing magician, for the Golden Dawn student, and for all others, to whom 'the classical tarot' still appeals."

In its first, 1991 printing, the Magow deck was printed by Wydawnichwo Glodnych Duchow -- which roughly translates to "Hungry Ghost Publishing House." The cards were cut to larger-than-standard size; the '91 edition measures 3" x 5-1/8".

In 1994, the Spanish publishing firm Fournier republished the Magow in a smaller size for the Polish market. The Fournier edition measured 2-5/16" x 4-1/4". The cards were otherwise the same as the Hungry Ghost edition, including titles in Polish ajws_TM_9nd English. Because distribution of the deck remained contained within Poland, Spanish titles were not added.

Scarcely seen outside of Poland, the Tarot Magow is an amazing, thought-provoking deck to which tarot enthusiasts have had lamentably little access.

Z recenzji:

Karty mroczne, u wielu ludzi wywołujące lęk, niewątpliwie naładowane mocą, która budzi respekt. Powstały w wyniku szczegółowych medytacji i wizualizacji ich autora i na pewno nie służą do zabawy ani kuglarskich sztuczek. Ale większość z nich z klasycznym tarotem wspólną ma tylko nazwę.
