Deck of Interest—The Herbcrafter’s Tarot

Sep 06 2019 Published by under Anna's Decks of Interest, US Games

How do you use herbs?

Beginning with the premise that herbs are archetypes in botanical form, this deck builds on the traditional 78-card Rider-Waite-Smith tarot format to bring the magic of herbs into the hands of readers. Rather than documenting the properties associated with specific plants, this deck focuses on the relationships between people and plants. Dandelion shows us The Fool. Garlic teaches us about Strength. Rose shows us the heart of The Empress.

Joanna Powell Colbert’s illustrations are beautifully designed and rendered. They contain symbolism, captured in small details, that harkens back to Waite’s demanding standards. The cards respectfully reflect Latisha’s Mexican-American heritage and the Celtic heritage that she shares with Joanna. The companion book explains it all perfectly.

Whether you are a tarot reader, an herbalist, or someone who occasionally buys potted herbs in the grocery store, this is a deck that will brighten your world. SHOP FOR THE DECK
