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 my 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.
DETAILS ABOUT THIS EDITION: The Sea and Sand Spring Edition of the Isidore Tarot features a switch in the color palate. The rose and gold of the third edition’s major arcana has been replaced with sea and sand shades. The minor arcana have been given a little color tweaking to bring out the colors and give a bit of a sun glow to the them. This version is based on the new third edition of the deck. The third edition of the Isidore Tarot says goodbye to the white borders of previous editions and offers cards with full bleed artwork.
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. This listing is for just the deck and companion book. Deck packaging is as pictured – if bought used please note the boxed deck should also include the drawstring pouch the box comes in.
