The Urban Tarot
A loving homage to the metropolis and all its diverse inhabitants.
The Urban Tarot is a new take on the Thoth deck by Robin Scott. This stunning deck provides a map to your own inner city, a guide for the twenty-first century seeker of truth, insight, and magic living in the urban landscape. This unique vision of the tarot presents a set of ancient symbols, designed to help you see the miraculous in the modern and the mundane. The 78-card deck comes with an 84-page guidebook to help you find insight and understanding from the challenges of urban life. The book includes personal commentary by the artist about the people and events who inspired Urban Tarot.
Board the train line that eats its own tail and journey with us. Feel the power pulsing below the pavement. Move to the music of traffic, and breathe in the smells of smoke and sweat, of hot pizza and the impossible. Within these cards, you will find the familiar and the fantastic sharing a four-story walkup apartment, where the avenues of Dream and Reality cross.
An excellent companion book to this deck, especially for LGBTQIA+ readers, is Cassandra Snow's Queering the Tarot, which was illustrated using this deck.
