Vision Tarot

[Emperor] [4 of Staves] The Vision Tarot is a photographic deck based on the images of the French Tarot of Marseilles and the Rider-Waite Tarot. The deck designer Tim Thompson wanted to stay true to the traditional images while using the modern medium of photography. He incorporated as many symbols as possible from the older decks into the scenes on his cards. The people are dressed in period costume and placed in appropriate Renaissance European settings. Card names in French and roman numerals are shown in the color pictures. English names and numbers are given in the borders. Each minor arcana suit has a distinctive inner frame and an appropriate background to identify the suit: swords/sky, cups/water, coins/earth and staves/wood (with a fiery cauldron as well). The aces are angels carrying the token of their suit.
