Alchemical Wedding Tarot
Also known as Tarot di Purgatorio
The Alchemical Wedding Tarot is a somewhat dark deck with an otherworldly, dream-like quality. The sepia-toned art was created from collage organised on computer, featuring strong imagery of people appearing in masks and semi-animal forms. The 22-card limited edition is now sold out.

Alchemical Wedding Tarot review by Dan Pelletier
A big sized card, almost 13cm by a tad over 9cm. Nice big cards.
Twenty-two Majors numbered in the English/American tradition (Strength is VIII).
Sepia. Nice gentle sepia. No jarring blaring computer enhanced colors stabbing at the retinas.
And dark. No – no, not colorwise, although the sepia can be seen as dark; but I mean dark. Disturbing.
I ramble aimlessly though them…
Some people won’t like this…penises both flaccid and turgid. Breasts, along with snakes, skeletons, and masks. Eyes abound. Babies pouring forth freely from a squatting Empress – in a mask.
A falcon headed human figure, perhaps Horus rides a Strombus shell, pulled by two sea turtles to illustrate the Chariot.
