The Steampunk Tarot

Where the past and future converge . . .

With a turn of the wheel and a spin of the cog, the oracular machinery lumbers into action. The curtains slowly draw back; the time has come to reveal your destiny.

Created by award-winning tarot expert Barbara Moore and brilliantly brought to life by artist Aly Fell, The Steampunk Tarot deck offers a glimpse of the future through a lens to the past. Retooling the gears of the Rider-Waite tradition, each card’s intricate artwork depicts a scintillating fusion of man and machine, nature and technology, science and alchemy, romance and fashion. The included manual offers tips, original spreads, and guidance in card interpretation.

Praise:

“An electric marriage of favorite geeky things, this deck is the perfect formula.”

  1. Where physics and metaphysics meet Delightful! The illustrations should appeal to steampunk afficionados/-as of all stripes and flavors. I particularly like the “Devil” card represented by a mechanical demon gone horribly rogue in a laboratory. Hey, we’ve all been there…And since it’s not intuitively obvious by the description, this item comes with booklet AND deck.

  2. Comfort of Steampunk and Tarot When I first was looking for this deck, I have to say that it was not clear to me if cards came with the deck or not. Second when I viewed this product the description was (Hardcover) which was not and now I see is changed to paperback. I however still purchased this book with hopes it came with the deck too. And I was very relieved that it did! So far this is a great deck and I’m liking the book as well. I do have to comment on the quality of the paper that Llewellyn choose and no organdy bag for the cards. It does feel a bit flimsy to me (I have had worse) but some of my cards are already wearing. It would have been nice to see a unique box along with this amazing deck. But I am still excited to have this deck in my collection.I also have to add that I really love the art work and the different twist each Pip card has. They just flow well together along with the few pages I have begun to read of the manual. I’m excited to digg into more!

  3. Steampunk theme but still excellent deck The art work has a lot of detail which I appreciate, and the steampunk theme well done. The colors are muted with brown overtones sort of like an old vintage photo. I really enjoyed the aviatrix on the mechanical chariot, the devil card is well done and captures my attention, but my favorite card is the knight of pentacles who is a British soldier with pith helmet and red tunic with a mechanical device strapped to his back. For those of you who don’t know steampunk is sort of quirky mix of science fiction, steam engines and Victorian era fashion, with some emphasis on gears and clockworks all very neat. Having said all of that this is still a serious and accurate tarot deck. The book itself is some 294 pages with the core meaning of each card given and then a more detailed description, plus a page devoted to the picture of the card tying everything together. I enjoyed the spreads at the back of the book in particular Panoramic Photograph Spread. My only complaint is that the cards feel a little bit thin. Thanks Barbara Moore and artist Aly Fell, for a nicely themed deck.
