Dream Within a Dream: Exploring the Subconscious with “The Poe Tarot”
This week, we are proud to announce the release of The Poe Tarot by Trisha Leigh Shufelt. "'The Poe Tarot' features the whimsical and, at times, macabre black-and-white illustrations by mixed-media artist/author (Shufelt) and quotes from the literary works and thoughts of Edgar Allan Poe...readers follow Poe as the main character, navigating through the Fool's journey while diving deep into the subconscious realms to unveil what only he can through the wisdom of his works and the teachings of the Tarot."
But that’s not the only thing that makes this deck unique—see the suits, which have been creatively reimagined to fit the world of Poe: Candles instead of Wands, Quills for Swords, Wells for Cups, and Paws rather than Cups/Pentacles. To learn more about the unique aspects of the deck from it's creator, watch our Facebook Live Event with Trisha Leigh Shufelt:
The Poe Tarot truly is a dense and visually stunning deck, encouraging it's readers to see beyond the cards. To learn even more about the deck and how to use it, visit Trisha Leigh Shufelt's website here.
