Tarot of the Cloisters

[Magician] [Ace of Vessels] The Tarot of the Cloisters is a round deck with a stained glass effect inspired by thirteenth century rose cathedral windows. The medieval figures and settings echo the traditional tarot images on the Rider-Waite deck. Each card shows the picture with the card's name and number in a banner at the bottom. The suits are staves, vessels, swords and pentacles. The instruction booklet is minimal, but does give a brief meaning for each card and a few spreads. The artist is Michelle Leavitt. The Tarot of the Cloisters is out of print, but some decks are still available.
