Some of you may remember Llewellyn’s Tarot Calendar, 2000-2001, or our tarot almanac, The Tarot Reader, 2006-2008. Sadly, while they were awesome (in my opinion), they didn’t quite work. But at Llewellyn we love annuals and we love tarot, so we never really let go of the desire to create some sort of tarot annual.
In the coming weeks, we’ll be brainstorming and kicking around ideas about this. Join the discussion. Share your comments and ideas. If you are familiar with the annuals mentioned above, tell us what you liked and what you didn’t like. What would be useful? What makes a tarot annual? What is the best way to connect tarot to the idea of a year…or should we scrap that idea entirely? If we don’t tie tarot to the idea of the year, what would make it an annual? Most of our annuals are tied to the year. I believe only our Herbal Almanac is not, and yet that one seems to work well. I wonder why.
Think bold, think big. Imagine the perfect daily companion for your tarot studies. Let’s see what we manifest.
