you know the most popular tarot deck in the western world was illustrated by a queer black woman right https://www.autostraddle.com/fools-journey-the-fascinating-life-of-pamela-colman-smith-267673/
@dickiegreenleaf fucking pisses me off that it's referred to as the rider-waite tarot. it's the smith tarot now mother fuckers.
@dickiegreenleaf had no fucking clue wow
@dickiegreenleaf thank you, I had no idea. Everyone I know is about to read this
She is a cutie.
Yep. She was really very cool
@dickiegreenleaf I did know that, and I frankly think it’s her art — not Waite’s arcane metaphysical underpinnings — that makes the Waite-Smith Tarot the remarkably evocative and timeless tool it is!
@dickiegreenleaf "Shockingly, she received barely any money at all, little payment and no royalties, for the Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot deck whilst Waite, naturally, enjoyed fame and financial comfort." I mean not _that_ shocking really... 😔
