Carnival at the End of the World Tarot
This is a unique tarot deck drawn by Nicholas Kahn and Richard Selesnick and is currently funding through Kickstarter and as of today (11/1/17) has 13 days left to go! It is also fully funded already and working on stretch goals, which is amazing!
The deck starts at $30 through Kickstarter for just the deck, although it also comes with a custom guidebook for just a slight amount more, if you are like me and love the guidebooks almost as much as the tarot decks.
From the Kickstarter:
Carnival at the End of the World Tarot is a contemporary tarot deck, a loose-leaf Book of Fate summoned from the same mythologies we have been exploring in our recent photographs, paintings and book project. In 2006, our multimedia project Eisbergfreistadt included a poker deck that when laid out in a long line, revealed a panoramic narrative of climate change and environmental devastation. In 2017, as the stakes of the Great Game have grown greater and the Anthropocene has exponentially brought change and chaos to many lives around the world, we have moved from making cards for jovial pastimes to those for divination: the Tarot, which in its traditional uses has been consulted to forecast disaster, anticipate risk, and navigate life-choices through backstage access to the Unseen. However, worry not if you don’t wish to dabble in sortilege and oracular query to peruse a glimpse of what the future may have in store for you–you may also ruminate upon the cards one by one in a linear fashion, and meditate upon the views from the Fool’s Journey as one would read a Pilgrim’s Progress; or, just as seekers and wanderers once stowed painted icons and gilded relics in the pockets of their cloaks, the Tarot can be a portable trove of mystifying talismanic images to accompany, inspire and entertain you on your own peregrinations.
I definitely recommend this deck! The art is just so unique and amazing and I am completely intrigued. I look forward to readings with this deck, I have a feeling they will be very interesting.
