WORLD OF TAROT™ IS A REGISTERED TRADEMARK
Way Of The Sword
"A Rock And Roll Divine Comedy"
Londa founded Pete Way Facebook Group January 2015 and is administrator. Pete is legendary bassist and founder of UFO & Waysted rock bands. The surrealism scene seen here was created by Londa and entitled: KISMET. On Pete Way’s birthday August 7, 2018 it was inserted into the Pete Way Facebook Group.
The Harlequin character in the right corner is contemplating an antique French tarot card that says, “La Folie ou L’Alchimiste” : Madness or Alchemist. The other Harlequin character is gazing at dice showing in combined dots 8 & 7; Pete Way’s birthday. The crow symbolizes wisdom and resurrection.
On The Book of Waysted is Peter Frederick Way’s initials and the anthem from Pete Way’s band WAYSTED:
“And, the band decreed,
You won’t get out alive.
And, the fans cried,
We don’t want out anyway.”
After seeing the release of David Bowie Starman Tarot Kit Londa was motivated to develop a few working ideas for possibly a tarot deck/kit dedicated to Pete Way based on his Harlequin style. Below are 3 working ideas. These cards were designed by Londa in September 2018 along with a few other card concepts which can be seen here in magazine format. If development proceeds, details will be announced at World Of Tarot.com or here.
