With Halloween and Bonfire Night just around the corner, it seems only right to feature and to review an awesome, autumnal tarot deck such as The Bonefire Tarot – a vivid, hand-painted Rider-Waite based tarot deck inspired by the vintage, old-school tattoo flash of Sailor Jerry Collins.
The Bonefire Tarot is the ideal tarot deck for the explorative reader as it features visual keys and symbols to enhance and encourage intuitive reading.
Designed and created by Gabi Angus-West, The Bonefire Tarot began as a painting based upon ‘The Lovers’ which was created in honour of an engaged couple, who sadly never got to ‘tie the knot’.…
Since relighting my love for reading the tarot back in the springtime, I’ve collected countless decks, a few of which I’ve made storage bags and pouches for. Here are a few of the bags which I’ve thrown together over the past six months or so…
Handmade At Home
Though I’m not too bad on a sewing machine, my work is far from perfect, thus it’s rather nice to have a couple of professionally made bags to add to my ever-growing collection.
I was very kindly sent two professionally made tarot bags by a good friend (from OrsettiCraft tarot pouches) during a rather dark time – I must say her work rather put my own to shame and despite turning the bags inside out and inspecting them thoroughly, I’m yet to figure out how she made such seamless bags (they are quite literally seamless!).…
Designed by Rachel Rosenkoetter, The Rainbow Heart Tarot is a brand-new bright, bold, and beautifully hand-painted, 78 card, indie tarot deck recently released in August 2020.
Based in Portland, Oregan, Rachel Rosenkoetter is a visual artist she explores the concepts of mysticism and the states of being throughout her work and has received a BFA in Painting from The Missouri State University and an MRA in Visual Studies from The Pacific Northwest College of Art. Rachel is a founding member of Killjoy Collective and the creator of the Rainbow Heart Tarot.
Packaging & Presentation
The Rainbow Heart Tarot arrives in a wonderfully pretty purple, scratch-resistant, sturdy cardboard box featuring a sacred heart surrounded by images relating to each of the traditional tarot suits. …
We are now in September and autumn has officially arrived as what were once luscious, green leaves are now casting from the trees in the most beautiful shades of yellow, orange, red, and brown. Autumn is my favourite season of the year as there’s so much to celebrate what with Halloween, Bonfire Night and the run-up to Christmas – it’s a majestically magical time of year though I sadly suspect that 2020 may be somewhat different.
I imagine that there will be no trick or treating nor public firework displays to attend this year. I worry that come October we’ll most likely be back in lockdown, but needs must – we must do whatever we possibly can in order to protect ourselves and others from this vicious virus, which I hope and pray that we can combat somehow or other.…
First published in 2019 by Liminal 11, The Modern Witch Tarot is a diverse, contemporary take upon the traditional tarot inspired by fashion and modern witches from the everyday walk of life.
Having seen quite a few walkthrough videos of The Modern Witch Tarot, I’ve been wanting to get my hands on this deck for quite some time and so as you can imagine, I was elated when Liminal 11 agreed to offer me a copy of this delightfully diverse and divine deck in exchange for a review.
Designed by Lisa Sterle, The Modern Witch Tarot was created during a low point of Lisa’s life: Jaded by the trudge of feeling trapped within a dead-end-design job, Lisa felt her creativity, passion for art, and general faith in humanity was being drained.…
