INTRODUCTION BY TIM REID
MORE STUPIDS is a book and deck that commingles autobiography, critical theory, diagrams and dumb jokes.
You may use the set in many ways.
None are correct.
A queer post-modern tarot-esque deck that serves up hilarious and sensual fodder for foresight and insight that comes from the often overlooked encounters in life. Visual wordplay lays bare a paranoid awareness of how impossibly exposed we are, yet makes clear that, in this, we are not alone.
— Paula Wilson
What if you left aside the symbols and narrative forms of a traditional Tarot deck, but kept its weird revelations? If you embraced a kind of reading in which not only are no interpretations incorrect but also, as Emmy Bright writes, “none are correct”? MORE STUPIDS is a collection of scrawled diagrams, homemade Rothkos, and the most affecting blobs you ever saw. Their insights are canny and uncanny at once. Whether you play alone or with other people, or simply look and read, they will rearrange your feelings about thinking and your thinking about feelings.
— Lara Cohen
MORE STUPIDS is not. Emmy Bright’s visual pleasures, clarity, sense of fun are matched by her textual probity and intelligence. More Stupids illuminates. Bright’s art is, in my humble opinion, brilliant.
