Marcus Katz and Tali Goodwin are today delighted to announce that Abiding in the Sanctuary: The Waite-Trinick Tarot, a Christian Mystical Tarot (1917 – 1923) is published and available here.
The book is hardback, with dustcover, 186pp in colour, 8”x10”. It is published in a limited edition of 250 copies. There is a preview on the site.
We are honoured to have a preface in the book by Mary K. Greer, who kindly supplied an introduction to Waite’s lifetime work and also discovered a “prophecy” that Waite had made about the revelation of hidden symbols after a century! Whilst not wishing to make too much of that, it is somewhat uncanny, and accords with some of the visionary experiences that came with the production of the work, which we tell in our own introductions.
The book also includes a double-page spread of the Tree of Life and Waite’s hidden system of correspondences, correspondence tables and a commentary against each image. With over 80 full page colour and b&w images, original biographical research and photographs and even rare Frieda Harris images of Masonic Tracing Boards, we trust this book will be a treasure for a long time to come. We gained permissions to use stained glass images, archive photographs and much more which we include in the book – at the last minute discovering and gaining permission to use a photograph of the Lanston Monotype Company shop floor, around the time of this story, where we suspect the plates were created for the b&w images of the Great Symbols. Whilst research is always incomplete, this book represents everything we know to date on the Great Symbols and it is a joy to share.
If you are seriously interested you should order a copy right away as they expect to sell out within the month.
