The Masters’ Tarot Full 78 cards Deck
My Master’s Tarot deck, is an original set creation. Consisting of all the traditional 78 cards, including 22 Major Arcanas and 4 suites of 13 cards of the Minor Arcanas: Coins, Cups, Swords and Wands.
AAt first, I was inspired by the tarot images shown in the intro sequence of the great tv show Carnivàle. Realizing that their images when not really corresponding to real tarot iconography, I decided to have my own take by creating a custom tarot based on the paintings of the great art history masters. I only retained from the original the contour lines, marble like textured background, and fonts an hommage.
To make the deck coherent, I focused mainly my search around Medieval and Renaissance paintings and have them match as closely as possible with images reflecting the generally accepted meanings for each card. I follow a few books and this website for meaning and iconography.
All my images are taken from internet, with resolution large enough to have crisp pictures. I worked on the project on and off over a period of six months.
