The Disney Villains Tarot is a novelty deck designed for the young at heart, filling the 78 cards of the Tarot deck with familiar dastards from across the Disney canon.

The Tarot of the Golden Wheel is not actually a new deck;* it came out in 2019 from US Games, and it somehow managed to slip under my radar up until this point.

When I first heard about the Tarot of the Divine Masculine, a new deck from Filip and Marko Vasich, I admit to having been a little trepidatious. This isn’t the first deck to approach Tarot through the lens of the divine masculine, and historically, such decks have been underwhelming. Often, they’re really good with a […]Read more "A Review of the Tarot of the Divine Masculine"
The Heaven & Earth Tarot is a new deck illustrated by Jack Sephiroth, out from Lo Scarabeo (distributed in the US via Llewellyn). It’s a RWS clone done in a painterly style, with softly lit card images set against a grey-wash background. First, some things I love about this deck. It reads like butter.
