Illustration for Fool’s Journey

Last September Jane asked me to draw a tarot card to accompany one of her wonderful poems for a book full of poetry and Tarot cards. I felt quite honored.

The card was the Wheel Of Fortune and the poem one, I had previously translated for her for an event.

Fool's Journey

About Fool’s Journey

“Fool’s Journey is a collection of 22 poems based on the Major Arcana of tarot, with 22 hand-designed cards based partly on my poem and partly on the corresponding Rider-Waite-Smith design.

The artists are from all different kinds of practices – tattoo artists, zine makers, ceramicists, costume designers, printmakers, musicians, directors, board game designers, writers, and a few professional illustrators too. Most are women and many are queer. The work they have created is full of glorious things and grotesque things, delicious oozing bodies, wolves and sunbeams and skeletons and UFOs.

As for me, I’m a weird, queer, witchy poet who likes to write about making out, made-up science, teeth marks and spells. These poems were mainly written at Can Serrat residency in the Montserrat mountain range. My work has been anthologised in the Best British Poetry, commissioned for BBC Radio, and translated into Polish, Croatian and Japanese. I’m also the author of Quick, to the Hothouse (dancing girl press) and Mashnotes (pitymilk press).” – Jane Flett, Publisher

“So Fool’s Journey is a reminder to myself. I might be the Fool, but I’m also heading in some other direction. It might be hard, but I don’t need to be. There’s another card tomorrow. And the next day. And all of them are looking great.” – Jane Flett on Little Red Tarot

“Working with Verena was one of the best things that could have happened to us in our situation: We had no experience in translating a real life festival situation into an online festival, but Verena was able to see us through in an uncomplicated manner. With a calm, patient and absolutely accurate and concentrated way of working, she built us a website which we see with pride and great pleasure.”

“Before contacting Verena’s Design Studio, I didn’t have a website and didn’t really get on with it myself. I chose Verena’s Design Studio because of their political orientation and community connection. I found the cooperation very helpful and am now very happy to have a new website and to get positive feedback for the website as well. I can gladly recommend Verena’s Design Studio!”
