  1. Kayla Garnet Rose, on The Enchanted World of Rambling Rose

    As I have confessed before, I am a quotaholic: I am powerless over a good quote. And what better way to have a quote a day to fulfill my quota than The Art of Life Tarot Deck by Charlene Livingstone. This stunning deck combines three of my passions: art, tarot and quotes, but what really impressed me the most was the packaging. The cards come in a box where the lid folds up into a nifty little pop up frame, complete with a clear plastic cover, making this a wonderful accoutrement for your desk or altar.

    The Art of Life can be used for traditional tarot readings but for me works best as my daily affirmation. The Art of Life Tarot is indeed a treasure and will be treasured for generations to come.

  2. Georgiana Boehnke, on The Tarot Room

    The Art of Life Tarot is beautiful. And it can hardly help but be given that it’s made up of 78 art masterpieces. Charlene Livingstone has taken her experience as an art historian and used it to curate an absolutely gorgeous fine art Tarot. Renoir, Klimt, Van Gogh, Cezanne, and da Vinci are just a few of the many masters represented. She’s also included quotes on each card from the greats of philosophy and literature, people like Emerson, Thoreau, Plato, and Lao-tsu. As a mini art-gallery with inspirational commentary, these cards are amazing. The fact that they’re structured as a Tarot deck makes them even better.

    Though not at all a standard RWS deck, the paintings Livingstone chose to represent each card loosely follow the general themes of the Golden Dawn tradition. And many, in fact, are very clearly RWS inspired. For instance, Gauguin’s portrait Van Gogh Painting Sunflowers is a beautiful depiction of the traditional 8 of Pentacles, as is Raphael’s Pope Leo X with Two Cardinals for the Hierophant.

    Though an understanding of the RWS or Golden Dawn Tarot systems will likely add insight to your readings with this deck, it’s not at all necessary. These cards stand alone, both metaphorically, and quite literally. One of the especially nice things about the Art of Life is its oversized cards and the beautiful box they come in. The box allows you to display a card as if it were a little framed painting on an easel. It’s pretty cute, and perfect for the contemplation of a single card and its message.

    This is a really nice deck. I recommend it to Tarot reading art fans, bibliomancers, and collectors alike. It’s not just a Tarot deck, it’s a magical fine art collection in a box.
