World Spirit Tarot
People are the focus of this earthy but lighthearted tarot deck: people of every shape, age, hue and ethnicity. The World Spirit Tarot has recognisable and readable tarot scenes that were created by being carved out of lino, printed, then hand coloured. It isn't pretty art, as such, but it is lively, inclusive and joyful.

World Spirit Tarot review by Kate Hill
The World Spirit Tarot is all-inclusive, multicultural and non-gender biased. People are the focus of this light hearted and earthy tarot deck, which shows people of every shape, age, hue and ethnicity.
People appear in Renaissance cities, African savannahs and Germanic villages. There are Romans, rock stars, artists, hippies, Ancient Egyptians, Pacific Islanders. The artists wasn't afraid to show nudity, either, as both people of both sexes appear naked in various positions on different cards.
The suits have been renamed from the usual King, Queen, Knight, and Page to the more ambiguous Sage, Sibyl, Seeker, and Seer. Some cards, like the Hermit, show people of indeterminate gender.
