Infinite Visions Tarot is a hand-made, self-published tarot deck designed by Gloria Jean, an artist and tarot card enthusiast from Colorado. The cards were digitally created from public domain images of the art of the Old Masters. Work from French, British, Russian, and American painters from a century ago have been included in the deck which maintains a traditional Rider-Waite-Smith symbolic style.
The Dark Priestess and the Dark Magician brings the number of cards in this deck to 80. It is the perfect deck for both the beginner and the professional. The cards have a smooth matte finish and come in a hand made laminated box, along with a 44-page LWB (little white book) which includes instructions for doing a one card reading, dispensing a bit of general advice, to include both and upright and reversed interpretations.
Kings and Queens in this deck are matching pairs. Here, the Queen of Swords is shown holding two swords, which indicate her attitude is and more about following her mind than her heart. She will cut to the chase and not be swayed by her emotions. The King’s swords are shown on the wall behind him as his power lies in his office or in his knowledge and wisdom base. He is a man who often holds issues of life and death in his hands. He is a wise counselor who, like the queen, places his mind the driver’s seat rather than his heart.
King and Queen of Cups: Pictured wearing green satin garments, stand in front of a wall which seems to hold back the ocean waves pounding behind them under cloudy skies. Both the Queen and the King hold a cup in their left hand while another cup sits on the table in front of them, waiting for someone else to drink with them. This symbolizes their need for others, for family and for love. A musical instrument symbolizes their love for music and for the music in their souls. Both the Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana are fully illustrated. The beauty and detail you see in the Major cards is also present in the Minors which are divided into four suits. These suits are the wands, swords, pentacles and cups. Each suit is numbered from one to ten and has four court cards, which are the Page, Knight, Queen and King.
This deck follows the traditions of the RWS Tarot system pretty closely (even though it's not merely a clone or a "look-alike" of Rider Waite Smith tradition), so it is a deck that a beginner can use and enjoy. Any level of Tarot experience can appreciate this deck.
The cards are printed with special smudge proof, fade proof ink. They shuffle nicely and easily and they will lay flat. They are cut with the corners rounded at 1/8" radius.
Each deck comes with a numbered and signed certificate of authenticity, and a little White book written by Gloria Jean. The box they come in is designed, printed and put together by Gloria.
The cards come in two different sizes and Gloria will ship to anywhere in the world via priority flat rate mail. Check for availability of the larger deck.
