The Hero With 78 Faces
Book Proposal by Melissa Michael
Explanation of the complete 78 tarot archetypes with reference to Joseph Campbell’s
Hero with a Thousand Faces,
The Tarot Revelations,
Transformations of Myth Through Time.
Note: The major arcana of the tarot have been explained in this way by others, including Campbell himself, while the minor arcana have been ignored. This book is a much needed, requested, adn desired examination of the total tarot in the light of universal myth.
Possible illustration - The Sola Busca or Ancient Enlightened tarot has a very heroic basis and Lo Scarabeo has expressed interest in giving permission for this deck to be used to illustrate a book. Alternatively, the Waite deck or some other tarot deck, or any classical heroic or mythic art.
