Guardian of the Tradition of the Tarot de Marseille since more than two centuries, the Camoin House was forced by the industrial revolution to change the colors of the Tarot. After a long Philippe Camoin, research task and Alejandro Jodorowsky tried to rebuild the colors and the symbols of the Tarot. Some were incomplete or had already disappeared at the 18th century.
Philippe Camoin, reference internationally recognized on the Tarot de Marseille, and Alejandro Jodorowsky, scenario writer of legend and master es Tarot, linked their efforts in order to create a Tarot de Marseille which is most esoteric possible, while respecting esoteric breadth tradition and symbolic system.
The attempt at Reconstitution of the Tarot de Marseille is a scientific study which was undertaken during several years per Philippe Camoin and Alejandro Jodorowsky. "Almost the totality of the Tarots of the whole world are copied from the pattern of the Tarot de Marseille”, Philippe Camoin observes, in the light of many irrefutable signs which it gathered and reveals during his investigations on the Tarot de Marseille. The essential aim of this research is to find the symbols, the vocation and the significance first of this monument of the Occidental culture, whose language is also understandable to our Eastern friends. It is not useless to quote H.P.Blavatsky here: “The Tarot is the key of all the Western esotericism”.
