Created between 2015-2017, Stasia Burrington’s original designs are a blend of sumi ink, watercolor, and Windsor & Newton Inks. The major arcana from the full-sized deck is now part of a private collection in New York. The deck’s name, “sasuraibito,” reflects its essence as a companion for the wandering seeker on their life journey.
Inspiration and Design
The 78 cards draw from the Rider-Waite deck, modern Western life, and Japanese and Buddhist concepts. Each card is a unique blend of traditional and contemporary themes, offering gateways to self-discovery and introspection.
The Tiny Traveller edition is specially tailored for modern, on-the-go tarot users. Its compact size makes it easy to carry, yet it doesn’t compromise the art’s depth or the reading experience. This edition is perfect for those who value both beauty and practicality in their spiritual tools.
Note on Wear and Tear
