The inspiration behind my project. Tarot; French cartomancy; transformation deck; analytical psychology; art; surrealism; symbolism; fingerprints; vintage prints; and illustrations (to name only a few.) Diamond: Sensation, perception with our senses, childhood and earth.
Spade: Thinking, becoming part of society, early adulthood and air.
Heart: Intuition, abundance and fertility, midlife and water.
Club: Feeling, knowing without reasoning, late adulthood and fire.
Why is this deck unique? Each card tells a story. The whole deck paints the landscape of our lives with vintage engravings and prints—the ideal synergy between significance and design in a pack of cards. There is nothing like it out there—that’s why I’m doing it!
Cartomancy, divination? Yes, of course! The Catomancer Poker Deck uses the existing structure of a standard deck of cards as a canvas for a new insightful cartomancy system. ALL the cards feature universal archetypes and symbols making it a very instinctive tool for divination. But if you're not into this, you will still enjoy the deck for its beauty and uniqueness.
The deck also was shipped with a 32 page companion booklet the size of the box, containing an introduction to the deck, keyword meanings for each card, and ideas for divination.
