A lavishly illustrated, freshly conceived tarot deck and guidebook that focuses on creative inspiration, daily reflection, and revealing new possibilities.
JONATHAN SAIZ's paintings and sculptures are in private and commercial collections worldwide and are exhibited in the US and the UK. His last series, ALKAHEST, was created during eight hermetic months on the Greek island of Mykonos. A recent commission from the Denver Museum of Nature and Science allowed him to explore his interest in the shrouded and mysterious side of history, studying ancient Roman frescoes and scarab beetles, also expanding his love for the visual and energetic possibilities of crystals and minerals. JASON GRUHL is the former executive director and founder of The Joshua School (a school for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders and Developmental Disabilities in Boulder and Denver, CO) and an educational consultant. Jason holds a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology and a Bachelor's degree in English and Psychology, and dedicates his life to self-discovery through meditation and reflection. ANDI TODARO's graphic design projects have taken her across the US and into Europe- from her recent work with MSNBC in NYC for their coverage of "The Feast," to her designs for the "Belle Epoque" and "Bollywood" Galas of the American School of Paris.
"When A. E. Waite conceived of his deck with Pamela Colman Smith in the early 1900s, what he did is what the creators of The Fountain are doing today, over 100 years later. The Fountain imagery both simultaneously exhibits a timeless quality and also expresses where we are today in our spiritual journey as a global society." --Benebell Wenn, Author of The Tao of Craft, and The Holistic Tarot (North Atlantic Books)
"First conceived as a collaborative art piece by artist Jonathan Saiz, author Jason Gruhl, and designer Andi Todaro, these 79 paintings with shimmery silver-gilded edges sing with a kind of hyper-modern cosmic intelligence. The mini guidebook interweaves classic tarot themes with sacred geometry, art, psychology and technology. All in all? It's a silvery, self-reflective, nuanced delight."-- WildUnknown.com "So lush and gorgeous. Every card feels like a refreshing spring rain, inviting you to step inside and dip yourself in its secrets. From the shiny, metallic box, to the beautiful, geometric cardbacks, to each thoughtfully-rendered painting, The Fountain Tarot has seduced me hook, line and sinker." --twosidestarot.com "Creat[es] an atmosphere that feels timeless and modern at the same time, as though the cards can truly tell the future by calling upon some kind of evolutionary, dawns-of time understanding that exists within all of us, and all around us..." -- Little Red Tarot UK, Beth Maiden
