ANNE STOKES GITHIC TAROT DETAILS

The deck is based on pre-existing artwork selected to depict or match the main Arcana or court cards. As consequently, there are some strange ideas in the deck. The Hanged Man is shown as coiling Medusa, The Tower is depicted as a fairy grabbing an enormous web, The Chariot as a dragon spitting fires. It is the Anne Stokes Tarot, which is actually far more dark (or perhaps The Hobbit goes to Hell) Hobbit gets to Hell) rather than Gothic is filled with fairies, unicorns, elves dragons, grim reapers and occasionally vampires All living in harmony within a multi-purpose Medieval castle.

Minor Arcana is not illustrated. Minor Arcana is not illustrated however, instead it uses pip cards that are somewhat grim. The suits are presented in the standard manner of Cups, Swords, Wands, and Pentacles… However, they are illustrated with somewhat improbable (to appear to be Gothic) symbolic meaning. The Cups are depicted as a silver chalice brimming with blood, and the numbers are represented by bats as well as a glowing red pentagram forms the background of Pentacles and the number represented by silver skulls. Swords are a sword made of silver set on a purple background and feathers of white that represent the numbers as well as Wands depicted as a sterling Wand with the white light shining from the point and the numbers counted through golden dragon medallions.The Court Cards use vampires to represent the Cups royalty, skeletons and Grim Reapers to represent Pentacles, Angels with feathered wings for Swords and dragons as well as Wyverns for Wands royals. The deck measures 60 x 110 millimeters, which is less than the usual. Its cardstock is fantastic with a low sheen, light and flexible. It can shuffle extremely well. The image on the cards is clear and sharp The colors are typically more dark in tone. Every image is placed within an elaborate frame that has an inscription of inside the form of a circle in the middle. The card’s name is written in four different languages that are English upper left corner, German top right, French bottom left, Spanish bottom right – with a stark white printing. The back design isn’t reversible. A castle door, or perhaps a an iron shield with a huge medallion dead center is adorned with the word “Anne Stokes Collection” wrapped around a small dragon.
