Medieval Enchantment: Nigel Jackson Tarot

Based on Medieval/Renaissance symbolism and Pythagorean numerology, the Nigel Jackson Tarot looks polished and authentic.

Medieval Enchantment: Nigel Jackson Tarot review by Tom LeBlanc, CTC
A well-known esoteric/symbolic artist, Nigel Jackson appears to utilize much of the Rider-Waite-Smith (RWS) system in juxtaposition with "Classic" tarot imagery.
