The Rebis is a new print publication celebrating the connection between tarot and creativity. For our first anthology, we invited writers, artists, and tarotists to explore their relationship with The Wheel of Fortune. The result is 60 dazzling pages of original writing and evocative artwork.
The Wheel is a card of constant change and cyclical time. Of both surrender and liberation, endings and beginnings. A reminder that both expansion and contraction are part of Earth’s natural rhythms. It's a card of infinite possibilities. Within these pages, you'll find dreamwork and alchemical symbolism, urban landscapes and enchanting otherworlds. There are trickster coyotes and burning clocks. Paradoxes and power struggles. An invitation to look beyond “past, present, future” tarot readings and into the fourth dimension. A reminder that dreaming is part of liberation work. And deep reverence for the interconnectedness of all things.
Features: 8x10 full-color print publication. 60 pages of essays and poetry, a tarot spread, and artwork — including original watercolor paintings, illustrations, collage art, and a "phygital" two-page spread with a QR code you'll be able to scan for an immersive experience.
