Cartas Philippinensis


By Saul Hofileña, Jr.
Preface by Dr. María Cristina Barrón Soto
Published by Baybayin Publishing, ©2016.




Cartas Philippinensis by lawyer and professor Saul Hofileña Jr. is a reimagination and revisiting of our colonial past, the effects of which still reverberate through our present.

This self-published work comes in two parts – a deck of 22 Tarot cards in the Major Arcana and a book that explains the significance of the figures on each card, with a narrative of the inspiration or historical background for the images on the cards.

Cartas is presented in a box-shaped like a book. The art on the box cover recalls paintings of the 19thcentury. Inside the box is the deck of cards in a receptacle on the left inside cover, and the hardcover book in the recess on the right. The entire inside of the box is covered with burgundy fabric. Everything about it – box, book, cards – is of the best quality.
