Enter a parallel world where tarot comes
to life. Designed by artist Andrea Aste to look like it was created during the
era of the master alchemists, the
Lost Code of Tarot is full of allegorical images and esoteric languages. Inspired by the codes of Leonardo da Vinci, this deck is reminiscent of a time when science and magic were fused together and a place where wisdom emerges from the space between the lines.
A fanciful and creative romp, the Lost Code of Tarot weaves a tale revealing an alternate history of tarot. Reading like a taut mystery, the accompanying companion manual tells the story of an ancient alchemical laboratory unearthed in 21st century London, containing secret tomes and "the first tarot deck ever created." The illustrations are quirky and engaging, and express the feel of the fictional narrative well. The pip cards are stylized but non-scenic.
Note that the book that comes with this deck is a not a traditional guidebook, but a novella telling the fictional story of the discovery and meaning of the cards.
