When I learn of a new Tarot Deck with the words: antique, ventage, retro, guilded . . . my curiosity is peeked. Tarot is an ancient art — going back to the Egyptians . . . I’m also interested in the witch decks . . . Those caught my attention when I started this website and my personal Tarot Deck collection. I also wanted something different and unique — perhaps relatable or just whimsical. My Tarot Journey was a personal one of learning something new.
I will now get on topic and introduce the video to walk us through The Antique Anatomy Tarot Kit published September 10, 2019 by Abrams Noterie. I like to see what I’m getting before I place an order . . . I’m sure you feel the same.
This deck does address anatomy — bones, muscle, etc. All the stuff of us. I think the cards are very well done. The guidebook is good as well. Let’s get into the nitty-gritty of this deck from the publisher’s perspective.
“Natural history meets spirituality in The Antique Anatomy Tarot, a deluxe boxed set of cards and guidebook by Claire Goodchild, owner of the design studio Black and the Moon. The foil-stamped keepsake box contains a 78-card tarot deck and an accompanying guidebook. The cards, which feature illustrations of vintage anatomical drawings collaged with plants and flowers, represent a fresh and creative interpretation of the tarot archetypes.”
