Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Brian Williams (1958-2002) was an artist, author, Tarot  lecturer, and Italian expert who brought twenty-five years of experience and study to these related disciplines. He held a BA in Italian Renaissance Iconographic studies from the College of Letters and Science of the University of California, Berkeley (1982). He studied in Italy for a year at the Universita degli studi in Padova (Padua), Italy (1978-1979). He was later an artist-in-residence at the Istituto nazionale della grafica, Calcografia in Rome in 1984-85.  In his four previous books, particularly the Renaissance Tarot, and in his many workshop and lectures, he established himself as an expert in the history and symbolism of the tarot. In addition, his divinatory decks have marked him as one of America's most prominent and prolific tarot artists. They include the "Renaissance Tarot," "PoMo (Postmodern) Tarot," "Angel Journey," and "The Minchiate Tarot." Williams was a frequent speaker and presenter at tarot organization events and meetings, and led tarot-focused educational/celebratory tours to Italy.

HASH(0x93f3f750) von 5 Sternen Fools AHOY! 8. April 2012
Von Violet - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Karten Verifizierter Kauf
Howdy Tarot enthusiasts!

Everyone has been "the Fool" at one time or another... how about a deck of Fools? Sounds fun, no?

I spent months looking for the name of this deck online this summer after seeing a random card photo used on a tarot blog site I was perusing. The idea of an entire deck of fools made me curious to purchase them for my ever-growing collection.
The 15th century illustration style is wonderful. Brian Williams' renderings after the german Narrenschiff classic are well thought out and timely, regardless of the era we live in currently. As an expert on the subjects of tarot and Italian Renaissance Iconography, Williams brings a well-informed, thoughtful spin to a new deck.

Rather than quote him or the book, let me just say why I gave this 3 out of 5 stars for the following reasons:

The NAYs:
~ Slippery, flimsy card-stock that the deck is printed on
~ Not so easy to decipher a variety of the cards and image meanings IF you do not have tarot deck symbology memorized or if are a beginner at reading tarot

The YEAs:
~ Has a great book to supplement the deck which is both informative and easy to understand. It is not a cryptic guide or vague lesson on the occult like some companion books are. READ IT if you buy this!
~ Warm, old-world feel to the illustrations that I personally really like- makes me want to use at a Ren-Fair, dressed up in period garb...

Great deck for the collector, the Renaissance-o-philes or the SCA folks. You will love this, and if you are that person, likelihood of you already being a tarot reader is pretty high.

HASH(0x93f23450) von 5 Sternen Wonderful artwork! 17. Mai 2004
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

This deck is not for someone who likes color. These drawings are wonderful and neutral in color. They are very Medieval in style and done by the late Brian Williams, who is one of my favorite Tarot card artists. If you are not a beginner and collect Tarot cards or are looking for something unusual - this deck is great.

HASH(0x93f2d780) von 5 Sternen Astonishingly imaginative 9. Dezember 2012
Von George Washington, Jr. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

It was once explained to me that the Fool card, as zero, could come at the end of the Major Arcana, after the World, as much as at the beginning in front of the Magician. In a sense, the Fool is between each of the other cards. So why not a deck of just fools?

The photographer Diane Arbus said that she believed there were things no one would be able to see unless she photographed them. In her case, that was clearly true, and the mark of a great artist is to be able to see what no one else can, and then communicate it to the rest of us. Brian Williams was able to find the Tarot deck hidden in Sebastian Brandt's "Narrenschiff." As a collection of iconic images, anyone looking for particular Tarot cards will find examples everywhere, but finding an entire deck takes more time and a great deal of work. Especially in the case of "Narrenschiff," the Tarot correspondences are not immediately apparent, and Williams had to subtly alter many of the images to bring them closer to Tarot iconography. Brandt, of course, never intended to create anything even remotely resembling a Tarot deck.

The accompanying book is invaluable in that each card is shown with the "Narrenschiff" image it was based on, along with the corresponding Waite-Smith and Tarot de Marseilles cards as the standards. Williams kept several "Narrenschiff" images intact, and in a few cases, copied the Waite-Smith image when no "Narrenschiff" picture was applicable. Meanings are traditional, but with a twist - for example, the Three of Swords is not devastating heartbreak so much as a love affair gone awry.

The card backs have two wands and two swords in an "X" pattern, with the cups and pentacles in the spaces between the "arms." The deck is monochrome, with all images in dark brown line drawing on a light brown background, far more pleasing than black on white.

The end result is a deck unlike any other - artistically fascinating, and conducive to interpretations that may take different directions than expected.

HASH(0x9408ce04) von 5 Sternen Last great effort from the great artist! 31. August 2005
Von Richard K. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Karten
I had to get this set for the book alone. The late great Mr. Williams was an exceptional artist as well as scholar. He obviously loved what he did-History of art and Tarot. He had a grand passion for these subject like no other. He lived a rich and full life, however short it was.

Above all, he contributed to the vast history of the Tarot leaving behind work that will last for generations to come. One such work is his Ship of Fools Tarot. Not as brilliant as his Renaissance Tarot, it still packs a punch. The colors are all monotone but the imagery and details stand out. There are many other decks that can be used for color.

This deck is humorous and delightful to approach, as the fool becomes the main character on this profound journey. One feels that the journey is not so serious. Smiles and taking life in stride paramount here. Mr. Williams had an uncanny ability to combine history and humor sucessfully.

What is really great is this is all historically accurate. His drawings only clarify this classic. Don't expect some mystical revelation here. If you find them, congratulations! As far as a reading is concerned, these cards are tighly based on the Rider-Waite system. It works great for beginners, but I would say to start with a color deck. As far as a scholar and serious student is concerned, this should be required study.

I use this deck on gloomy days when I need a good laugh. It works rather well in this case. Thank you, Brian!

HASH(0x944e90e4) von 5 Sternen A nice tribute to Sebastian Brant 12. Dezember 2007
Von J. L. R. Reed - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Karten Verifizierter Kauf
Firstly, I am not a reader or tarot enthusiast. I purchased the Ship of Fools by Brian Williams purely for the art. This deck is based on the late 15th century work "Narrenschiff" by Sebastian Brant. Four out of Five stars. Why? I wasn't really thrilled with the "playing card" feel of the deck. Other than that...

The Late Mr. Williams was a wonderful artist and stayed true to the spirit of the original art of the "Ship of Fools". If there was a deviation from the original work, Mr. Williams explained why he made the choices that he did as well as compared the design with other well known tarot decks.

The cards are a delight to look upon; crisp and clean lines with love and humor thrown in. It is a worthy final work for a man who dedicated much of his life and career to the study of the art and history of tarot. The book is nicely compose and a quick read, the perfect accompaniment to the cards.
