Folklore Tarot: Its unique features are as follows:
Drawing inspiration from global folklore and mythology, the Folklore Tarot combines diverse narratives into a single deck. The cards in this deck don’t just tell tales from one culture or one part of the world, but a myriad of stories from across the globe. It presents the commonalities of human experience, with the wisdom of the ancients offering insight and guidance for today.
Every card in the deck is beautifully illustrated. The pip cards, which include the numbered cards from Ace to Ten, are adorned with intricate floral designs. The Court cards (Page, Knight, Queen, and King) and the 22 cards of the Major Arcana feature characters and archetypes from world mythology. This makes the Folklore Tarot visually stunning and rich in narrative depth.
The 78-card deck is printed on high-quality card stock with black painted edges. The cards are treated with a unique combination of spot gloss and matte varnish, which adds a vibrant pop of color to the deck. This makes each card a tangible work of art, carrying a sense of weight and significance during readings.
The Folklore Tarot comes with a 136-page illustrated guidebook. This book provides information on the mythological origins of each card’s imagery, detailed descriptions of their symbolic meanings, and guidelines for interpreting them in a tarot reading. It serves as an essential companion for beginners, and a rich source of additional insights for seasoned tarot readers.
