10 Feb Tarot Deck Exploration – 78 Tarot
Title: 78 Tarot
Creator: Collaborative deck
Publisher: Independently published
Format: 80 Cards and booklet (78 cards of the Tarot and 2 wild cards)
Size of Cards: 7cm x 12cm
What You Get: The Deck with the book which is much bigger than the standard little white book. You also get a beautiful pouch with the 78 Tarot logo embossed on it.
Like most collaborative Tarot decks there are some cards that I adore and some I just scratch my head at. This is true for all art, so when ever you get 78 artists to contribute to a collection that is going to happen.
I split the deck into cards that I liked and cards that I didn’t connect with and most of the deck were in the ‘cards that I like’ pile which is good sign.
The card stock is nice and easy to shuffle and the cards have a laminate finish.
The wild cards are really funky and can be read with the description in the book or however you as a reader want to.
One thing that I was excited to hear Kayti mention was that they are going to give some of the artists who are not overly familiar with the Tarot a little more guidance in regards to the cards meaning. Which I think will be super helpful as a Tarot Reader. Some others may love the open interpretation of the cards without the artist having any guidelines.
I am really looking forward to the second deck which is going to have a nautical theme (I voted for that theme yay!). I have been watching the account on Instagram and it is rather exciting to see the new artists as they join the project.
While the website was down while I wrote this it was really well done when it was up.
I would recommend this deck to anyone who loves collaborative Tarot decks and people who are open to different explorations of the cards and their meanings. I am going to read with this deck for sure. It will be interesting to see which of my Clients pick this deck for a reading.
Where to Purchase Your Copy: The first edition copies of the deck are being sold on Etsy.
