First Edition - Major Arcana
- A labor of love. With pen & ink illustrations by Chris Adams. Each archetype from the Major Arcana has been thoughtully paired with a mushroom species based on the artist's relationship with those fungal individuals.
The First Edition.
This deck includes the 22 Cards of the Major Arcana as found in the Rider-Waite Tarot as well as 3 Mushroom Guide cards representing Mycelium, Spores and Hyphae.
Each card has been carefully matched with a mushroom species after thoughtful consideration of potential connectivity between that mushroom and its archetype.
All illustrations are pen & ink by Chris Adams.
- This project began with an intense appreciation for mycology, and a mild curiosity with Tarot and Tarot Deck composition. This first phase has ended with Chris being obsessed with both Tarot & Mushrooms.
Magic & Regeneration
- "Coming to this project with minimal Tarot experience has created a unique relationship between the archetypes, the reading of the cards and myself. I really started this project with a purely aesthetic interest in Tarot Cards and a mild curiosity with all things 'magic' related, and have left it with a more diverse appreciaton for Tarot as a tool for inward reflection and thoughtfulness.
