The Shakespeare Tarot
The Shakespeare Tarot merges the works of William Shakespeare with the art and mysticism of the Renaissance. The 78 images are drawn from alchemical treatises, frescos, etchings, drawings, and masterpieces in oil, and are landscape-oriented to emulate a stage.

The Shakespeare Tarot review by tedglart
"Bright baffling Soul, least capturable of themes," to quote the first line of Thomas Hardy's sonnet "To Shakespeare", the Bard himself needs no introduction. The English language has never been more eloquent or powerful, and the established canon of 37 plays is an inexhaustible fund of psychological insight and philosophical speculation. No wonder there have been several attempts in the past to map Shakespeare's characters onto the durable framework of the tarot. But just as Shakespeare stood head and shoulders above his contemporaries, this deck seems light-years ahead of previous efforts in terms of visual poetry and intellectual sophistication.
