As Promised


One more image from the striking Goth Tarot deck by Winny. I had to show you the Judgement card:

Once again, click the image for the large version so you can see the details. I like how she’s reaching towards you with her hand, with the light issuing from her palm. Is she coming for you, or offering assistance?

I don’t want to run afoul of copyright laws so I won’t be posting anymore, since it is just a Majors deck, but this was too spectacular not to share. With my obsession with vampires, the bats were just the ulimate touch.

    Great picture. And your description of it is right on. Should you fear her as she’s coming towards you or not?

    Of course, you’d love the bats. 🙂

    This, indeed, seems an ideal deck for you!

    Thanks, Tasha! My only regret is that the really gorgeous decks like this don’t reach a wider audience. It’s great from a collector’s standpoint, having these limited edition runs, but it’s a shame more people don’t get to enjoy them.

    I finally learned my lesson after missing out on the Bohemian Gothic Tarot. Now I pounce when I see something I like!

    And yes, the bats were a great surprise 😉

    Speaking of decks, I’ve never understood the neverending popularity of Rider-Waite. It seems I’m in the huge miniority, but I find the pictures so dull that I was never inspired to read from it.

    How do you find that one?

    I’m not sure how it got to be so popular, either. Probably it’s largely due to the fact that for a very long time there was really no other choice. It was either a Marseille deck, or the Rider-Waite. Some of the esoteric orders had decks (Oswald Wirth, for one) but those were not available to the public.

    I have only used mine a few times over the last few years for reading. It’s still my ‘mental’ deck though, the images are so ingrained in my memory (when using a deck with pips for minors, I mentally fall back on this deck). Pixie’s artwork is deceptively simple, I believe she illustrated children’s books so that was her style. A lot of people are turned off by it. I used to dislike it more than I do now, but have a greater appreciation for it since learning more about PCS. But yes, the images seem so flat and the colors so muted it’s hard to be inspired by it.

    When I was in Santa Fe I visited the Georgia O’Keefe museum, and was stunned to see some of Pixie’s artwork hanging on the walls there!
