The New Unnamed Tarot Deck
August 16, 2007 § 1 Comment
I have just discovered that Norbert Losche is working on a new tarot deck. I have only recently become acquainted with his Cosmic Tarot, despite the fact it was published almost 20 years ago. I love the vivid colours and filmic quality of the cards. It’s also a great reading deck.
According to this website, Losche has so far completed ten of the cards for the New (as yet) Unnamed Tarot Deck – including, we are tantalizingly told, the Ace, five and six of Cups. Sadly there are no samples on the site but, if you’re feeling impatient, you can speed up the painting process if you have £6969 to spare! (I checked behind the sofa, but didn’t quite have enough.)
There is also a more detailed section of the site dedicated to the Cosmic Tarot where you see some of the cards, including an early version of the Moon card. I actually prefer the version on the site – I love the detail in the waves, the turbulent waters of the subconscious. I can only imagine what a fantastic deck it might have been painted in that style. Luckily, the final version didn’t turn out too bad either. 🙂
