Wayward Arts Typoccult

The design team at The Workhouse has revealed its obsession with typography in Wayward Arts Magazine (Issue 18) from Flash Reproductions. Drawing connections between typefaces and tarot characters, the over-sized 12-card deck is nothing short of mythical, magical and magnificent.

Intricate illustrations that appear on the front of each card are set in kaleidoscopic motion through a technique called scanimation – multiple sets of drawings/patterns are combined into a single composite image and a piece of acetate printed with fixed-width black bars is manually moved over the composite. Blinking, all-seeing eyes; twinkling stars; tipping scales; spinning pentagrams; and undulating concentric circles are some of the animated wonders here.
