The Black Ibis Tarot is a companion deck to the Sepia Stains Tarot – both decks featured in the graphic novel The Black Ibis. Within this surreal and fantastic story the underground is an esoteric community ruled by the stars above and the secret knowledge below. Conflicts are settled through an intricate chess-like game played with the two decks. Originally the decks were created to offer a tangible element to the story, but slowly became well received tarot decks on their own for their unique charm. The Black Ibis deck is a bit more structured than the Sepia Stains Tarot. The companion book offers brief card descriptions for both the major and minor arcanas. The minor arcana in this deck is pips.
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. This listing is for the deck and companion book. Thank you for your interest in adopting a deck!
