This book explores the possibility to fit the essence of six Tarot cards to the constricted structure of the haiku poem. The result is a beautiful economy of thought and image.
Although the book was written as a companion to the limited edition Arcades Tarot, it can serve as inspiration and guiding tool for all interested in developing a language of visual synthesis. How do you render a world of Tarot symbolic representations and cultural functions in 17 syllables? By keeping an eye on what goes in and out of the arcades of perception.
All the poems in this book function as a spell, which makes this book a talismanic object.
