The lens of steampunk is one of wistfulness and hopefulness and this blend of technology and possibility. With its fanciful worldview where machinery and magic intersect, it is a perfect social lens through which to conceptualize the Tarot. As a social subculture, I find steampunk’s focus on design and aesthetic to be very appealing.
Created by award-winning tarot expert Barbara Moore and brilliantly brought to life by artist Aly Fell, The Steampunk Tarot deck offers a glimpse of the future through a lens to the past. Retooling the gears of the Rider-Waite tradition, each card's intricate artwork depicts a scintillating fusion of man and machine, nature and technology, science and alchemy, romance and fashion. The included manual offers tips, original spreads, and guidance in card interpretation.
