I just ran across Sabazius's Notocon speech and noticed...

Finally, I’d like to call Brother Vere up here to update you on the Thoth Tarot restoration project.

Sounds interesting, anyone care to pass on some more info?

Weiser Antiquarian just released a catalog that may have something to do with this, not quite sure I wasn't at NOTOCON to hear the speech.

The 2nd Print of the Book of Thoth looks stunning.....i just can justify the $3000.......at the moment....plus theres only 11 of them!
Some stunning items on that list....and some jaw dropping prices too!

They do look like an extraordinary devotional piece of work, for which Keith deserves far better comments than some of the rather foolish remarks he's been subjected to elsewhere...

If I had the funds to hand I'd join you in buying into the elite Eleven!

Not even remotely related.

The Warburg is is working on restoring the Thoth Tarot originals.
That is all.

i am presuming there are more than 78 images, as there are some rejected versions... i used to own a lovely 1940s photographic print of one of the working paintings for the Prince of Flames that was rather different to the published card, for example- it would be lovely if this project covered those as well

Unfortunately these photographic are not on display anymore on this site:

http://www.caduceusbooks.com/occultartgallery/harris/harris.html

There were really some interesting variants. It is still a rather impressing site (as is the Occult Art Gallery in general). Check out the Harris watercolors and then move on to occultartgallery.com, if you don't know the site already of course.

P.S. Ben Fernee had this HUGE Frieda Harris sale a few years ago. I presume (I hope) this stuff will go into the project also.

I believe Lady Frieda Harris (the painter) willed them to Gerald Yorke. So, that would make them part of the Yorke collection in the Warburg.

If it's in the Warburg collection, it's covered. But... it's a really, really costly project to restore watercolors. I should think the Warburg would welcome donations toward it. Except from you goth/punk/pierced/tattoo'd freaks. };->

i went there some years ago on a pre-arranged research trip with all the necessary academic bonafides etc, and the first thing the librarian said to me was *in freak-out mode* (the second i walked in) "you can't see any tarot cards you know!!!" to which i calmly replied i didn't want to see them, and handed her a beautifully itemised list of my needs, with all their shelving reference numbers on, and the preferred order i would like to see them in...... sometimes being a perfectly organised academic (which i have done on a few occasions) freaks them out more than anyhting else
