Seeing the World - Tarot Signposts on the Path to Perception


By Jean-Claude Flornoy, translated and annotated by David Vine

An English translation of Flornoy's Le Pèlerinage des Bateleurs (2007).

The present book proposes a way to get one's bearings through that fabulous tool of self-knowledge, the Tarot. Recognizing where we are is no easy task to begin with, still less so is figuring out where we are going. The Tarot cards constitute a land of psychological adventure. They describe an array of ways to live, to perceive, and to make sense of the world around us, A veritable sacred geography, the Tarot offers signposts to help orient the traveler making the journey of the soul.

This thoughtful and insightful treatise on the Tarot de Marseilles also features a card from Flornoy's beautiful Noblet deck as a bookmark.
