About this title

Synopsis:

A round, mostly black and white deck with two lurking splashes of color, The Gorgon's Tarot is an innovative and inspired way to read the tarot. With Dolores Fitchie's discreet, tongue-in-cheek humor, it's also engaging and fun to read! The traditional 78-card deck is complemented by an additional Major Arcanum card, The Blind Gorgon. This card can be used in a reading as a "wild card," as what some Tarot authors call the significator, or as a general atmosphere-setting concept. Unabashedly feminine and a restrained paean of praise to the animal kingdom, it features a largely female cast, lots of animal companions, commentators, bodyguards and familiars, and a mixed bag of traditional and not-so-traditional imagery, with traces of unorthodoxy here and there. It is suitable for both beginners and experienced readers, and ideal for those who enjoy images with more than one meaning, who can make up their own stories by simply looking at the images. All you need is an uninhibited imagination.

About the Author:

Dolores, aka the Gorgon or Gorgs for short, was born in Spain at a time when the country was straddling a no-man s land between the late middle-ages and recalcitrant proto modernity. In due course she emigrated, travelled for a while and ended up putting down roots in London. To this day she is not sure why she picked London, or allowed herself to sprout roots, for that matter. She lives there with an exasperating chronic illness, two temperamental computers, the numerous creatures that emanate from them, more books than she has shelves for, and interesting wildlife in her garden. She is devoted to her graphics and to the few notions and principles that have survived a life-long habit of reconsidering, adjusting, readjusting and pruning the garden of her intellectual life. She loves animals, art, Flamenco music, good ideas, and the few friends that linger in her ecosystem.
