The Efflorescent Tarot (efflorescent meaning 'bursting into flower') is based on the Rider-Waite tradition and comprised of its own illustrated world of characters, objects and places. The 78-card deck is currently available from the artist through Etsy (in full-colour or black and white versions), and is also seeking a publisher.

Efflorescent Tarot review by Monica
The Efflorescent Tarot captures a gentle and delicate world infused with a sensitive and oftentimes dreamy energy. This is the self-published creation of artist Katie Rose Pipkin, predominantly molded in the Rider Waite Smith (RWS) tradition.
Efflorescent means ‘bursting into flower’, and so a number of cards in the deck make this a central theme. In some cards, such as the 6 of Cups, it seems as if flowers are the central focus of the whole card, and the two protagonists are enmeshed in their world. In other cards such as the 7 of Pentacles, you need to look closer to realise the presence of small, diminutive flowers is weaved and entwined in the gardener’s hair.
