ALFRED HITCHCOCK TAROT REVIEW
From Welkin the creator of The Shakespeare Tarot, The Beatles Tarot, The Golden Age of Hollywood Tarot, and The Charles Dickens Tarot – is The Alfred Hitchcock Tarot.
Based on a collection of films from The Master of Suspense The AHT is accompanied by an accompanying book of 230 pages detailing each card’s contents in detail. The book, which is full of colour, provides a description of the films featured and several of the factors that led to the production.
The 78 cards follow the traditional tarot patterns and are akin to the Rider-Waite-Smith deck of cards that allows for easy understanding. The companion book provides an in-depth explanation of the production of the films by Hitchcock and the psychological reasons behind these films.
ALFRED HITCHCOCK TAROT CARD DETAILS
Nearly all of the 53 films by Hitchcock are represented, and those that are popular and/or important are shown more than once.
The deck is complete and the accompanying book, which was written during the process of creating the deck has also been completed. The final touches are being applied to the deck that will be completed to be delivered by the beginning of the months of September.
The campaign was launched to raise the funds needed to purchase the limited edition of 100 decks as well as 100 books to accompany them. Every effort has been put in to keep the price at a level that is as affordable as it can be.
As with the rest of Welkin’s Tarots the cards are of a large size (3.5″ x 5.75″) and of top quality 300 gsm. The book is a standard trade-paper size, measuring 6″ x 9″, and contains a color rendition of every card.
In his films, Alfred Hitchcock makes a cameo appearance on all of the Minor Arcana.
