Mirrors of the Heart Card Deck

Like it or not, it’s Valentine’s Day.  And because of that, I’m offering up some hearts from the card deck I made in 1994.  Mirrors of the Heart grew out of my interest at that time in tarot cards.  I thought of each card as being a quality that the heart, or at least my heart, desires.  It’s an oracle deck, a deck for storytelling.

 The deck has been the largest single project I’ve ever created.  I remember feeling a strong sense of accomplishment in taking the deck from the stages of thought and intuition through to carving the 44 linocuts that comprise it.

Over time, I saw the card deck as a sort of unbound book.  I’ve recently thought of this as I turn some of my old prints into booklets and send them out as mail art.

 May the heart be with you and may you be graced by love.
