The Isidore Tarot Deck is an art collage style tarot that uses whimsical vintage illustrations by J.J. Grandville to recreate the symbolism of the Rider-Waite-Smith tarot deck. Grandville’s characters are turned into new characters with the aid of Victorian era ink illustrations and with our shoppe artist’s own pen-work to complete the collages. Each card is given a light color tinting to finish the piece. The idea for the style is based upon Max Ernst’s Une semaine de bonté collection.
DECK DETAILS: The cards are 2.75″ x 4.75″ in size. They’re printed on 300gsm card-stock that is sturdy and has a smooth finish. Cards have a blue core that helps prevent transparency of the card so both sides feature brilliant colors. They’re very easy to shuffle and good for everyday use. The full packaging option of this deck includes the deck, packaged in a drawstring sheer organza bag and stored in a labeled metal tin with additional touches. The autumn packaging also comes with a 5 x 7 inch art print of the autumn Isidore artwork and a goodie “bag” of spooky mini prints. Deck and print is signed by the artist. To see samples of the entire deck art, please visit my Isidore page.
DECK AVAILABILITY: This version of the deck has been retired.
