The Victorian Steampunk Tarot

Circle Network Card Deck Review: the Victorian Steampunk Tarot - Unravel the Mysteries of the Past, Present and Future by Liz Dean, published by Cico Books in a flip lid magnetised box. Includes a full deck of 78 tarot cards with an illustrated booklet. Computer graphic designs by Bev Speight. The deck captures the spirit of the steampunk. Based on Rider-Waite deck but each card carries an individual artwork, with clockwork hearts and butterflies, deconstructed burlesque, brass spy glasses and other Victoriana. The cards can be interpreted upright or reversed though the backs give this away. Steampunk unites the age of steam with modern counter-culture. Anything is possible, plasma screens, hot air baloons, Jules Verne, Mary Shelley, Edgar Allan Poe! For those who love the magic of retro!
