TV & Movies Tarot Decks
The TV and Movies Tarot decks feature familiar characters and images from books, television or film - or were themselves featured onscreen.
The Carnivale Tarot is a 78 card deck, created for the HBO television show, Carnivale. It was created in a rush by a design company lacking in tarot knowledge, and has uninspired masked faces with differing decorations on each card rather than any imagery relating to the television series.
The deck is based upon the 1968 soap opera "Dark Shadows", which was the first television show to feature the tarot for readings, warnings, and magical spells as an integral part of the plot. Cards feature script lines and pictures from the series.
The very talented Lar has combined Disney characters in the standard Tarot scenes to create a wonderful cartoon-like deck. Unfortunately the deck is not for publication.
The Golden Age of Hollywood Tarot is based on scenes and personalities from movies of the 1920s to the 1960s. The deck has 82 cards (there's an extra 'Veto' card in each suit), and many cards have been renamed to suit the theme. It's an accessible, practical and colourful deck, grounded in familiar popular culture. Now self-published via The Game Crafter.
The Heart of Stars Tarot is a modern deck of 78 cards, illustrated with famous movie characters and scenes. Each image was carefully chosen to fit the essence of each card, and create a more familiar link with the traditional Rider-Waite symbolism. The deck is self-published and available from the artist.
The Heart of Stars Tarot has 78 cards featuring movie stars and movie scenes, created to make a more immediate connection with tarot through the use of familiar pop culture icons. The third edition includes two new icons: Wonder Woman as the Nine of Pentacles and Les Miserables as the Five of Pentacles. Self-published and available from the artist.
The Hobbit Tarot draws on the world of elves, trolls, dragons and wizards as created by Tolkien in his novel, The Hobbit. The illustrations for the 78 cards have been created by fantasy artist, Peter Pracownik, who also created the Dragon Tarot.
The Lord of the Rings Oracle is a 40 card divination deck, ostensibly based on Tolkien's work. The artwork is illustrated in quick coloured pencil sketches, and the associations between Middle Earth and the cards are not well thought out. By the same author who made the (better) Lord of the Rings Tarot.
A tarot deck and game inspired by Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy. Thick borders surround the complex and busy but nicely coloured artwork, and a quote from one of the books printed on each card.
The Movie Monster Tarot is a fun deck of 23 cards, featuring well-known monsters and horror movie stars like Frankenstein, Elvira, Freddy Krueger, Dracula and more.
A personal tarot deck, not for publication, featuring characters and scenarios from the original Star Trek series. The Star Trek Tarot art has been drawn in felt pens and the style is campy and Sixties - classic Trek.
The Tarocchi del Cinema is a black and white Italian Tarot of 22 cards, each featuring a portrait of a movie star from the sixties. Not just any stars of the big screen, either, these are ae pictures of Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Jack Nichsolson and more.
L. Frank Baum's fifteen Oz books, the most famous of which is the Wizard of Oz, provided the inspiration for these polished and charming tarot cards. Even non-Oz fans can enjoy the Tarot of Oz.
The Tarot of the Witches was featured in a James Bond film, Live and Let Die, and so is also known as the James Bond 007 Tarot. It's rather ugly.. and not to be confused with the Witches Tarot, which is far different and much better.
The Wizards Tarot is a tarot deck and a school of magic, where the majors feature the professors and the minors feature the students. Designed by Corinne Kenner and illustrated by John Blumen, it has photo-realistic digital art and a distinct Harry Potter feel.
