From Melisandre’s glamours to Qartheen warlocks drinking nightshade, Game of Thrones is imbued with magic and mysticism. Now, a celebrated tarot card creator and illustrator have teamed up to bring us a Thrones-themed tarot deck, intertwining the age-old practice with the fantastical world of Westeros.
Created by tarot expert and author Liz Dean, the set includes a full set of cards and a hardcover booklet explaining the symbolism of each card and how to use them in a tarot reading. The richly colored and beautifully detailed cards make use of characters, stories and scenes from Thrones, which Dean calls an “outstanding story” perfect for a tarot deck.
“Archetypes are the foundation of every great tale — and Game of Thrones is an outstanding story, a rich weave … From the icy landscapes beyond the Wall to the hot deserts of Dorne, the world of Game of Thrones is replete with symbolism: an abundant source for a new tarot deck,” Dean says.
The cards and booklet are illustrated by Craig Coss, a fine artist and illustrator. Although the deck isn’t available until March 20, 2018, it is available for pre-order at Amazon and Chronicle Books.
