Spolia Tarot. Edition II.
The Spolia Tarot is a collaboration between artist Jen May and writer Jessa Crispin.
The artists use images from history, from alchemy and mysticism, from mythology and the natural world to create a lush deck layered with meaning. Jen has been studying the symbolism of the tarot for years, and together they were meticulous about using the colors, flowers, crystals and stones, animals, and other imagery associated with each specific tarot card or its astrological associations.
This deck is a variation on an older Italian deck called the Minchiate, which had 97 cards rather than the more standard 78 card deck. There are a few of the Minchiate’s other cards, like one card for each astrological sign, and one for each of the elements.
The Spolia Tarot deck includes 94 Illustrated cards. Extra cards are zodiac and elements. 56 page manual.
Stunning quality. Perfect deck for any collector.
