The Isidore Tarot

The Isidore Tarot Deck: A beautiful & whimsical tarot featuring anthropomorphic characters in surreal Victorian scenes! This 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 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. Below you can see samples of the entire deck, view the deck’s companion book online and view full deck specs/details. Ordering options are below as well as to your right. We offer several methods of purchasing the deck as well as special editions.
