Introducing the Cirque du Tarot, an exquisite deck designed by celebrated author Leeza Robertson and illustrated by the talented Josh Tufts. This captivating tarot set brings to life a whimsical world of circus performers and mystics, each card beautifully crafted in a Neo-Impressionistic style with a nod to Georges Seurat’s influence.
Tufts’ artistry shines through in the meticulous character design, creating a cast of characters that dance across the cards. The use of contrast and lighting adds depth and dimension, while a carefully selected color palette imparts an ethereal, dream-like quality, reminiscent of the enchanting atmosphere of the Moulin Rouge.
In this deck, the court cards take on a unique approach, featuring four key members that represent the entire suite, each distinguished by its coloring. This departure from convention adds a fresh perspective to the traditional court card structure.
The Cirque du Tarot is more than just a deck; it’s a performance. Leeza Robertson takes you on a journey through five acts, an intermission, and an encore. Act I introduces you to the Major Arcana, while the court cards offer a glimpse behind the scenes, where performers prepare for the next acts of the show.
The accompanying guidebook, narrated in the persona of a circus ringmaster, offers both whimsical charm and insightful interpretations. For each card, you’ll find the Ally and Challenger aspects, providing a comprehensive understanding of its meanings.
With its captivating blend of artistry and depth, Cirque du Tarot is a visual and intellectual feast. Tufts’ evocative illustrations combined with Robertson’s engaging narrative offer a truly magical reading experience. Whether you’re drawn to the world of entertainers or seeking a unique addition to your tarot collection, Cirque du Tarot promises to delight and inspire. Step into the enchanting world of the circus and let the show begin!
