Design and Artwork
Tarot V, crafted by the artistic talents of Alejandro Colucci and the tarot expertise of Charles Harrington, is a deck that delves into the primal essence of humanity and monstrosity. The intense, moody art sets the stage for deep soul exploration, showcasing a struggle between good and evil. Each card in this deck reminds us of the duality within us – the monsters in humans and the humanity in monsters – making it a profound tool for shadow work and introspection.
Deck Features and Quality
The deck features high-quality, borderless artwork with stunning prints, capturing the essence of vampires in each card. The card stock is sturdy, albeit a bit stiff for riffle shuffling, ensuring durability over numerous uses. The cards initially stick together due to the trimming process but can be easily separated. The deck comes in a thick cardboard box, ideal for storage, and is accompanied by a small yet detailed guidebook offering deep insights into each card.
User Experience and Interpretation
While Tarot V may not be suitable for beginners due to its deviation from traditional RWS imagery and lack of explicit suit symbols on the cards, it is a valuable addition for experienced tarot readers. The deck’s artwork and guidebook are well-thought-out, offering lore, divination interpretations, shadow work suggestions, and keywords. It’s an excellent choice for those engaged in shadow work, seeking a deck that offers more than just surface-level interpretations.
