The Vertigo Tarot is a modern, slightly surreal and very gothic Tarot deck with dark artwork. By comic-book artist Dave McKean, it is a very popular deck and has been hard to find - but is to be republished in 2008.
Vertigo Tarot review by Isthmus Nekoi
Vertigo is a stunning deck, and the online scans do not really capture the rich colours of the cards. The photomontage style is typical Dave McKean, those who are fans of his work will probably love Vertigo, although this is an excellent reading deck on top of an artistic deck. Although this was my first deck, beginners may want to be careful with Vertigo as it departs from the Rider Waite deck in a number of ways.
Firstly, the astrological associations are very different from the Golden Dawn’s assignations. Not all astrological signs are considered, and furthermore, some planets are visited twice (Venus = Empress and Star, Jupiter = Emperor and Wheel of Fortune).
The pips are also abstract, following more in the tradition of Thoth than Rider Wait... read more reviews.
