Latest review of Tabula Mundi Nox et Lux

A review of the Tabula Mundi Tarot’s Nox et Lux edition was recently written by Djamila Zon, of the website “The Queen’s Sword” (www.thequeenssword.com).

This is a link to Djamila’s review of the Nox et Lux on her website. It is very thoughtfully done and thorough. She reviewed the deck as a stand alone, with only the little white book to see how it performs on its own, and is in the process of reviewing the full guidebook Book M: Liber Mundi. Links to that will be posted when available.

To my knowledge hers is the second formal review of the full deck, though I’m sure there are others I’m not aware of as the reviewers didn’t send me a link. The first reviews I know of were done by Mozes Ashkenzi, a moderator of AT (whose current nom de plume on the site is now “Zephyros”). Here is his review of the Majors edition for AT and his review of the 78 card Nox et Lux edition for AT which includes a review of Book M: Liber Mundi.

There was also an interview of yours truly in the December issue of Tarosophy Magazine, Volume 2 Issue 6, written jointly by T. Susan Chang and Peter Stuart, called “Picture of the Word: M.M. Meleen and the Tabula Mundi”. Members of the Tarot Professionals organization can get digital copies of all issues free. Hard copies are also available for purchase on lulu, for both members and non members. Info on how to get both can be found at this link: http://www.tarotassociation.net/magazines/

Also if the Nox et Lux review inspires you to get the deck, please note that it was made in an edition of only 418 copies, and I fully expect it to sell out eventually as the remaining number of copies continues to shrink even if slowly. It is unlikely to be reprinted as there is less demand for black and white decks. It is odd, I love color, and am really enjoying painting the Colores Arcus edition now in progress, and am in awe of the Golden Dawn color scales and their magic. But, I also am very drawn to black and white art. Hey, black and white are colors too  – and grey, let us not forget since these are drawings in marker there are shades of black that head towards grey. The have something all their own going on, and kind of remind me of etchings or wood block prints, or even artistic graffiti.

If anyone has a proposal for an interview or review, feel free to contact me. Or if you have done a review already, send me a link!
