The Anna.K Tarot

Since this deck won’t be available until May, it might be too early to start discussing it. But it is available for pre-order (HERE), and I am really excited about it.

Some of you may know my tendencies as a reader. I am a serial monogamist. Although I own and appreciate hundreds of decks, I usually only consider one (at most, two) decks my “primary reading deck” at a time. I stay faithful to that deck until…I don’t really know what happens. We grow apart. A new deck catches my soul. Sometimes my stint with a deck will be months; sometimes, years.

The Anna.K Tarot was self-published. I heard an interview of Anna on a radio show and was intrigued, so I ordered her deck. For several years (until I made the prototype of my Steampunk Tarot), this was my primary deck. And, in fact, this deck heavily influenced my ideas about what makes a good reading deck and consequently, the Steampunk Tarot.

What I love about the Anna.K Tarot:

1. Charming art

2. Simplicity of images

3. Traditional meanings

That’s it. That’s what I want in a good reading deck. I really do admire decks with more intricate art, but for me, my reading style, which is to have a lot of cards on the table and look for patterns, the simple images work best.

I’m so happy that Llewellyn is publishing an edition of this deck, including Anna’s book (expanded a little), so a larger audience can enjoy this wonderful deck!

To me colors in a tarot deck play an important role.
The color use in this deck really stimulates an intuitive interpretation
