Wilfried Houdouin is a professional graphic designer. Born in Gouvieux (Oise, France) in 1971, he lives in Marseille since 2001. Fascinated by the Tarot since the age of fifteen, he acquired his first Tarot of Marseilles at nineteen, and did not since stop studying it, practicing and teaching it with a growing passion. He was formed in the graphic arts in Paris at the end of 1980s, and obtained a stone-cutter's professional certificate in historic monuments restoration in Angers, 1992. He was trained in infography in 1996, and became a professional computer graphic designer. His researches into philosophy, art history, sacred geometry and cosmology brought him to rediscover the original structure and nature of the Tarot of Marseilles, which revealed to be a symbological model of the Universe.
These rediscoveries, coupled with the mastery of graphic programs, allowed him to realize the Tarot of Marseilles Millennium Edition deck, and to write The Sacred Code Of The Tarot, the first work of a series to come, dedicated to the metaphysical and symbological tradition of the Tarot of Marseilles. Besides, Wilfried Houdouin is co-creator with Yves Reynaud of the project Tarot of Marseilles Heritage. Aiming at protecting its traditional inheritance, this site proposes never before published facsimiles of the most beautiful historical Tarots of Marseilles decks, respecting the size, back and envelope of origin. Wilfried Houdouin is also a musician. Under the pen name Metawill, he notably plays the guitar in the album “Le Ballet Des Stars” of Ram Exponention.
