The Avalon Tarot is an Arthurian-themed tarot, but set in a fantasy-medieval world. The artwork is strongly coloured and reminiscent of comic books.
Tarot Deck - 78 Cards - Lo Scarabeo 2000
Avalon Tarot review by Charles F. Bryant II
This is a beautiful, highly detailed deck of 78 cards (22 Major and 56 Minor Arcana).
As the name suggests, these cards are based on the Arthurian legends. The Magician is Merlin, the High Priestess is Morgan, the Empress is Guinevere and the Emperor is Arthur, etc. I particularly like The Tower card (LWB: constructed by Vortigern) which depicts a knight approaching the forbidding tower surrounded by bare trees artfully depicted in black, browns, purple and bloody red.
The suits are Pentacles, Chalices, Wands, and Swords. The names of each card are also printed in five other languages (the deck is published by Lo Scarabeno and distributed by Llewellyn).
The style has a very detailed comic book look to it (and I do not mean this in a negative way) and the colors help... read more reviews.
