Grunge Tarot

Published by Rockpool Publishing
Distributed by Simon & Schuster

A highly symbolic deck born in the Grunge music subculture, the Grunge Tarot is an adventure that crosses the mysterious world of archetypes to arrive at the heart of the 1990s and grunge. Starting from grunge, this deck of cards aims to recreate the atmosphere and the impact of great rock stars as the restlessnessof an era, highlighting the search for identity among extremes. It is the dreamy and transgressive imagination of the Fool that begins every path, ready to lose himself or be redeemed. A grain of truth can exist anywhere, even in the pockets of an old checkered shirt, backstage at a concert, or in the doubts and vulnerability of adolescence

Francesca Matteoni teaches history (history of religion, anthropology of magic and witchcraft, mysticism and magic in the Renaissance) at a number of American Universities in Florence and holds workshops on Tarot cards, fables and poetry. She lived in England, where she earned a doctorate and conducted researches in modern history, elaborating the processes of witchcraft, the magic of bodies and medical folklore. She is the author of a number of publications.
