I love to know what books or decks are in the works and soon to be released. What I will often do is go to Amazon, search “Tarot” and refine the search by release time by selecting “Coming Soon”. This will show me things on Amazon waiting to be released. The next few months have a few things I want to get.
Deviant Moon Tarot Book (November 1, 2015) by Patrick Valenza
The ever so popular Deviant Moon Tarot will finally have a companion book! Thank you to Patrick the creator of the deck, he has been working on this project due to high demand. Exciting!
“Rich in esoteric symbolism, magically inspired, and beautifully illustrated, the Thelema Tarot is woven like an enchanting spell. Let the evocative cards of this deck be your guide as you explore the edge between light and dark, love and struggle. With deep wisdom and the levity of true inspiration, this is a reading deck for beginners and tarot adepts alike.” – Product Description
The deck looks beautiful from the few sample images. It looks appealing enough that I want to see more of it and thankfully I do not have to wait long.
“Enter the world of the green witch, where vivid imagery helps you align with the elements, natural energies, and the old religion. Presenting witchcraft practices and meaningful encounters with plants and animals, The Green Witch Tarot lets you open a channel between the reader and the spiritual beings of nature. Beautifully illustrated by Kiri Østergaard Leonard and accompanied by a comprehensive guidebook for easy interpretation, this deck is full of powerful symbols and energetic wisdom you can use to find the answers you seek.” – Product Description
Another witch-based deck is coming out. I will keep an eye on it to see more, but I am not dying to get my hands on this one.
Lo Scarabeo is releasing “premium” version of some of their current decks. These premium decks are made of the “best quality card stock” in an “elegant metallic foil hard box”. Each deck also includes an extended color handbook. The following titles are being released in premium editions.
- Art Nouveau
- New Vision Tarot
- Universal Tarot
I guess this comes from the realization from manufactures that readers do not want cheap flimsy tarot decks anymore. We are willing to put in the money for a deck that will stand the test of time and hundreds of readings. I said this before, there should be two versions of most decks, a low end copy for those who do not care much about the quality and a high end version like these premium editions coming out for collector and professionals.
“Discover everything you ever wanted to know about the Thoth Tarot with this incredibly detailed and easy-to-use guide. The Ultimate Guide to the Thoth Tarot details the ten most important symbols on every card in the deck, including each one’s practical and spiritual meanings. Writing in a convenient format designed for quick reference, tarot experts Johannes Fiebig and Evelin Bürger also provide tips, facts, and lore to improve your reading skills.” – Product Description
The authors of the Ultimate Guide to the Rider Waite Tarot now are going after the Toth deck. I am so buying this! The Toth tarot has been such a difficult deck for me to use, no author has been able to really make me like the deck. I am sure this book will be able to help me see the Thoth more fully than before.
There you have it, my list of soon to be released tarot goodies that look appealing! I am adding some of these to my shopping cart. What have you bought, or want to buy? Let me know.
