Tarot Disassembled is a full 78-card tarot deck that deconstructs and re-examines the traditional symbolism found in the classic Smith-Waite Tarot deck. Utilizing a bright color palette and simple, bold graphics, each card reveals a pattern created from a fresh arrangement of the traditional symbols.
One of the most unique tenants of this deck is the almost complete absence of human representation. This allows the user of the deck to connect with the symbols in a completely intuitive way free from any pictorial narrative around gender, skin color, age, size, ability or any other human constructs.
PLEASE NOTE: This deck comes with a link to download a PDF of the full guidebook, a holographic sticker and bookmark. A PRINTED GUIDEBOOK IS NOT INCLUDED WITH THE DECK.
I have loved playing with various Tarot decks all of my adult life. But digging into the research for Tarot Disassembled has been like going on a walk in the forest and discovering that every tiny rock and leaf holds hidden treasure underneath. Simply put: I didn’t know how much I didn’t know. The reverence and fascination I have always had for Tarot has only been compounded by discovering the layers upon layers of meaning each individual symbol holds. My hope is that this deck will stir up some of that same excitement for you!
I believe this deck can be used and enjoyed by seasoned Tarot readers and complete novices alike. The simplicity of the visual symbols makes it a great first deck for a newbie, while the complexity of the visual information makes it a great deep dive deck for a pro.
