Artists have been infatuated with Tarot since the mid 1400's right around the middle of the Italian Renaissance. The word Renaissance is French in origin, & simply means rebirth. It is the era best known for the renewed interest in the culture of classical antiquity after the Dark Ages. Its rich and lustrous history dates back to times we modern day artists will never experience. Creating a Tarot deck seems like a connection to a time when artists & their peers gained a greater appreciation for history and mythology - & thus expressed it through their art. It is a magical relationship with history that we as artists get to experience. A collaborative Tarot deck provides the interpretation of a whole collective of artists. It becomes a reachable dream of a whole group of creators - able to produce something that by themselves would have taken years of their career to do. It is our modern day Renaissance.
