What will you see in these images?

Successful creator of the Gilded Reverie Lenormand, Legacy of the Divine Tarot, and The Gilded Tarot Deck, Ciro Marchetti indulged his personal visual passions in order to create this energetic and highly imaginative deck.

Having explored traditional tarot imagery to the saturation point, he was looking for a new challenge. He decided to throw out preexisting formats and create an open-ended oracle deck that would allow individual mindsets to have as much to do with users’ interpretation as with his intention. The resulting 52-card deck comes alive with fantasy, theatricality, and a hint of Steampunk.

The 140-page companion book provides Marchetti’s perspective on his images and an account of his personal journey through the deck. He encourages readers to take his creations into their own hands and glean from the deck what is best for them.

My favorite cards? I am soothed by the beauty of Card 48 (Choice), drawn into the intensity of Card 8 (Dedication), stopped cold by the melancholy of Card 15 (Closure), and laughed out loud at the staunch silliness of Card 2 (Assimilation). This is a deck you will enjoy! SHOP FOR THE DECK
