Yesterday I finally received the Tarot deck from U.S. Games - they look so wonderful, I have to show you!
This King of Cups is my contribution to the Pride Tarot - a collaborative 78-card tarot deck inspired by Pridefest and the achievements of the LGBTQ+ movement. Pride Tarot from U.S. Games Systems features 45 diverse artists from around the globe who share their poignant and powerful stories.
Most of the cards I originally designed for this deck depicted the tarot scene from a female point of view. But since the tarot should reflect a more inclusive perspective, I added traditionally male figures to the deck as well, mainly for the Kings and some Minor Arcana cards. For the Emperor and the four King cards, I created two versions, feminine and masculine, and have included both as bonus cards in this 83-card deck. Readers may choose which rendition they want to include in their tarot readings.
