The Fairy Lights Tarot was created in an interesting way. The artist made paintings that were scenes containing two cards. The scenes were then split to create the two separate cards. The designer says that because of this method of creation, there are special ties or resonances between the split cards. They were painted in pairs that we might not automatically think of as natural pairs, so we are encouraged to push our thinking about the cards beyond our normal bounds.
Here are some of the original images and the resulting cards.
PLEASE NOTE: the cards used here do NOT show the final card design. They were preliminary designs and I used them because those were the scans I was provided. The final cards look like this (note the curved borders andâ€”HURRAYâ€”lack of multiple languages!):
High Priestess and 7 of Wands
Lovers and 10 of Cups
Page of Cups and Queen of Swords
Knight of Cups and Knight of Pentacles
The Tower and 4 of Pentacles
5 of Cups and 10 of Swords
