You know when you suddenly stumble upon something that makes your jaw drop? That’s just happened to me with the Tarot of Trees.
Its creator, Dana Driscoll, describes it as a “whimsical” deck…and it is. But it is so much more than that. It’s a wonderful idea, beautifully executed. (I am in love with the whole suit of Pentacles.) Most surprising and delightful about it is that the paintings make sense. Perhaps it is their whimsical simplicity that makes them so easy to read, like picture books.
I also love that each suit is linked to a season and that this is reflected very clearly in the images. Wands are summer, Swords are autumn, Pentacles are winter and presumably this means Cups are spring (she doesn’t say).
And the colours….oh the colours! Aren’t they divine?
