The Prismatic Tarot is a 2 year labor of love from artist Kelsey Showalter.Influenced by the classic Rider-Waite tarot, this deck seeks to modernize, and re-imagine classic tarot symbols.
This is a deck one can become extremely intimate with, reading deeply into both emotional and representational aspects of each card. Human gestures splay across each card, with energy and spirit. Shading mixes with silhouette. Color palettes speak, both complementing and contrasting, in a masterful application of saturated hues and muted tones.
Examination of the deck reveals it is crafted with reverence to meaning and attention to detail. Each card is illustrated expressively, with minimal wording. The artist, Kelsey, creates a completely visual communication, pure and thoughtful in execution. The cards speak clearly, allowing imagination and receptivity to swell. The Prismatic Tarot is a bold, vivid read, that sparks visions and emotive interpretation.
This Prismatic deck is luxury on the fingertips, too. A laminated surface is smooth; easy to shuffle and deal. A tuck box keeps the deck safe, and you may download the Prismatic Tarot Booklet here. Read about right-side-up and reversed meanings in the booklet, plus a short history of tarot, and guidance on reading the deck.
Overall, the Prismatic Tarot is an authoritative and vivid expression of traditional tarot meanings. The direct visual communication of the cards allows intuitive interpretation to flow, helping newer readers become accustomed to trusting their magic, and allowing expert readers to find fresh meaning within familiar energies.
