Oh, sweet baby Jesus in a pecan pie, it’s good to have my hands on a new Tarot deck again. And what a hell of a deck this is. The Ostara Tarot is a collaborative deck, the work of four illustrators: Molly Applejohn, Eden Cooke, Krista Gibbard, and Julia Iredale.

However, today is not that day. My […]Read more "A Review of the Wild Unknown Tarot"

But boy, am I ever glad that I finally have my hands on it. Before I dive into the art, let’s […]Read more "A Review of the Mary-El Tarot"
