Passion, combined with depth of meaning and symbolism, is at the
heart of the Tarot. Such concepts are also intensely felt by those who
drink deeply of the gothic world of love that lasts forever. The
ultimate combination of the two is found in The Tarot of Vampyres.
Featuring Ian Daniels' masterfully and meticulously crafted artwork, The Tarot of Vampyres
is the most modern and visually stunning vampyre deck on the market. This
sumptuously rendered tarot is a tool for spiritual awakening, inviting
you to delve into your inner shadows and emerge in radiant light.
Inspired by the Rider-Waite structure, the 78-card deck includes
familiar figures such as the fool, the empress, and the lovers, depicted
with Gothic style imagery steeped in the entrancing world of vampyres.
This deck will be familiar to those used to standard Tarot decks, but
it brings into the fold those with desires that require just an
insinuation of danger—red roses with sharp thorns, coiled serpents with
fiery eyes, skin as white as marble, and the ever-desired drink of the
vampire: pure, red blood.
The suits have been renamed to fit the mood by morphing into grails,
knives, sculls, and scepters. This deck comes with a full-size book, Phantasmagoria,
which explains the meanings of each card and provides exercises and
sample spreads to inspire you. Perfect for neophyte or experienced Tarot
readers looking for a new vitality and direction.
A companion guide interprets the symbolism in each card and provides
enriching exercises, innovative spreads, and instructions for creating
your own shadow profile and vampyre persona.
