Tarot of Bones

I love tarot decks! Who doesn’t? I have a stupidly huge amount of tarot decks considering I can barely use them. That doesn’t stop me from collecting them. I like all different styles of decks, but once you get to a certain critical mass, you start looking for decks that bring something different to the topic. This was why I invested in The Tarot of Bones Kickstarter, and am now the proud owner of the deck with accompanying guide by Lupa.

Some of you may recognize Lupa from a review I did of her book “New Paths to Animal Totems: Three Alternative Approaches to Creating Your Totemism”. She’s well known for her interest in and connection with nature. She’s an artist/crafter that works in animal bone and skins. And what started as an artistic interpretation of the Five of Pentacles for a tarot themed art show turned into a passion project to retell the tarot through natural elements.

Assorted wood, animal bones, rocks, shells, and dried greenery create a tarot deck unlike anything before it. The accompanying book, “The Tarot of Bones Companion Book” is a fascinating read, offering a unique perspective on tarot interpretation through the eyes of the animal kingdom. The book will work if you’ve never used a deck before, and offers insights that even an experienced reader will find interesting.

I know, I know. “Enough talk,” you’re saying, “show me what the cards look like!” I hear you, and here are a couple of images to whet your whistle.

By this point you’re hopefully kicking yourself for not supporting the Kickstarter campaign so you could get your own “Tarot of Bones” deck and companion book. Well don’t panic because you can buy your own copy right now from www.thetarotofbones.com! But, if you’re feeling lucky, perhaps I could interest you in a giveaway?

That’s right! Lupa, the creator of “The Tarot of Bones” was nice enough to give me a deck and book to giveaway to one lucky reader! This contest is open internationally to readers aged 16 or older. The contest runs until Friday, May 19, 2017 at 11:59pm Eastern.
