Do the dead ever leave us?
Monica Knighton's Tarot of the Dead explores death with wry humor and whimsy. Inspired by the Mexican Day of the Dead, a holiday honoring deceased friends and family, this deck seamlessly blends Mexican tradition with European divination. Engaging watercolor artwork-often depicting human and animal figures as skeletons-embraces the inevitability of our mortality. The Fool hitchhikes with his skeletal dog and The Hierophant sits in a lawn chair among pink flamingos.
The fifty-six Minor Arcana feature pens, coffins, pistols, and film reels, an intriguing twist on the usual pips. Includes 78 card deck, booklet and bag. By Monica Knighton.
