I trust this is okay to post here - this seems to be probably the most active Shakespeare comm, anyway. Please forgive me and delete, if not. Any small British fandoms welcome in this comment fest, including Shakespeare, the histories, and historical RPF.

So, [livejournal.com profile] angevin2 made this post using her Shakespeare Tarot deck some time ago, and a discussion in comments led to a proposal for a Wars of the Roses tarot deck that was not based on Shakespeare. So, she and I came up with a provisional major arcana last night.

NB: First of all, both of us work on historiographical representation and its relationship to literary texts, so the assigning of figures or events to particular cards actually has very little to do with how we as people feel about them (read: We don't actually think Richard III is Satan. Seriously.) We pooled what we knew about tarot symbolism and combined it with historical symbolism. This is not about what these people were actually like; it is based on what they stood for and how they came to be represented -- if one wants to be technical about it, this is all about emplotment. Also, since The Wheel and The World are both deeply rooted in medieval iconography to begin with, we've left them alone.

Anyway. Without further ado.

The Major Arcana )

[livejournal.com profile] angevin2 has also offered to do mockups once she can find her illustrations from Jean Creton.

Has anyone else seen this ad for the Playstation 3?



I want to know who the actor is! But doing a Google just brings up a whole lotta sadness. :( Any ideas, anyone?
