I have been made aware of this book that is volume 1 of a 3 volume set looking at reversals. And it looks huge!!
It focuses on the Major arcana in this volume. According to the author there are over 190,000 words in this volume alone. Having looked through the preview, each card has 20 or so pages dedicated. I have had some feedback from Marcus, and each major is paired with each of the remaining 77 cards. It is then looked at in the pairing as reversed/upright, and reversed/reversed.
I am not going to go into maths mode as it could get mind blowing!!
But, that is comprehensive. If the remaining volumes do the same for the Minor arcana it should be possible to have a real sense of context for reversals, as opposed to just seeing them as a stand alone. That could prove to be invaluable. Reading a reversal as part of a pair does make sense. After all if it appears in a spread, we are used to linking cards with neighbouring cards, so it sort of does make sense to do it with a reversed card also. I know many here do that already, but for those who tend to not use reversals, that may be something that would not be easy to do, especially if what they have read on the subject has related to the card alone and not in context with another card.
I don't tend to use reversals that often, but for those who do this book or set of books, may be something to consider. I can also see this as being something that would grace a book collection, and could prove to be a valuable resource, even if it is only used on the odd occasion. Serious students of tarot may be more than interested.
And for those who know Dan Donche, he has given a one card reversed 'inappropriate' definition for all 78 cards which is included in the first section of the book. That alone, will be worth a read
I am not sure when the next 2 volumes are being made available, nor do I know anything about the likely format or content, but may try this one in the meantime.
