Golden Tarot review by Kate Hill
The long awaited Golden Tarot, by Australian artist Kat Black, is now in print. Ever since I first saw samples on Kat Black's website, I've been looking forward to its publication. Lengthy anticipation can sometimes lead to unrealistic expectations… but in this case, my sky-high expectations were met, and even surpassed.
The cards of the Golden Tarot have been collaged entirely from artwork of the late Middle Ages and early Renaissance period, and in symbolism are fundamentally based on the Rider-Waite. The cards have similarities to the general layout and major symbolic elements of Colman-Smith’s drawings, but have been re-interpreted in the totally different artistic style of late medieval and early Renaissance.
