In 2009, twenty-two performance artists of international standing each 'performed' a card in the tarot's major arcana, with designerJustin Weyers. The Magician Card was staged at Treadwell's Bookshop, by Helena Hunter. Proclaimed photographer Manual Vason captured the images, and thus was the SPILL deck born. It is a high quality 78 card deck in a luxury presentation box, with a small booklet included. It's a limited edition. It is hugely desirable for tarot collectors, fans of Treadwell's, and admirers of contemporary performance art.
