Tarot 3D Reviews

The Tarot 3D is the first of its kind, a tarot deck with a shifting, three-dimensional effect to its cards due to a plastic lens over the card image. The 22 large sized cards take their images from the Pictorial Key Tarot.

Review by Solandia

The Tarot 3D is indeed a ground-breaking tarot deck - it has three-dimensional appearing images thanks to a thick, textured plastic overlay. Depending on the angle at which the card is held, the scene might appear to have depth or to have the characters shift position or expression.

My first impression of the deck is that it was somewhat headache inducing! Viewed straight on, some cards have a blurred, holographic appearance (the High Priestess and the Magician, for example). Viewed from a slight angle, the card image stabilised. Others remained blurry no matter what angle I tried (Strength). The 3D effect works particularly well with a few cards with distinct foreground objects, especially the Hermit, Death (here given a very similar position and attitude to the traditional Hierophant), and the Moon (featuring a rather terrifying fanged octopus-like creature).

It's a 22 card deck, with oversized cards (close to 8cm by 14.5cm), and underlying tarot images sourced from the Pictorial Key Tarot. The cards have Roman numerals at the top and base of the card, inside a wood grain look border, but no text (following Lo Scarabeo's recent trend for no titles instead of multi-lingual titles). The 24-page companion booklet is printed in English, Italian, Spanish, French and German and a has brief chronological history of tarot, a sample nine-card spread and keyword meanings for each card.

While not a deck I'd personally choose for my readings, it is unique deck and one worth browsing through (and perhaps adding to the deck collection).
