Vanessa Tarot

The Vanessa Tarot is a cute, sassy, and glamourous deck inspired by pop culture heroines. It's light-hearted, fun, feminine and still very readable deck for the girl in every grown woman (or man). Packaged with a small tin along with a booklet.

Card Images from the Vanessa Tarot


Review by Dan Pelletier



The Vanessa Tarot does for illustrated pip Waite-Colman-Smith based decks, what Major Tom's Tarot de Marseille did for the Marseille version Tarots, and dragged it (the Tarot) into the 21st Century.

The Vanessa Tarot will perhaps be the most overlooked Tarot of 2007. ‘Serious’ Tarot folks will eschew it, many will never get past the Magician – and will poo-poo it as a silly novelty.

But the Vanessa deserves a closer look. It’s nothing short of brilliant!

Let me start with the LWB – it deserves framing. This should me the new standard for LWB’s. It is well written, concise, and is arraigned by numerical value as opposed to suits. And what is said about each card – makes sense.

Some folks enjoy saying ‘Tarot is a language’, perhaps because such a statement eludes cogent response, However the Vanessa Tarot IS a language.

Gone is the weighty esoteric symbology, leaving behind clean image concepts – that translate smoothly into nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs and articles. Many cards easily fill encompass several of those labels.

I could sit down with a non-English speaker and using these cards – in the style of Italo Calvino (The Castle of Crossed Destinies and The Tavern of Crossed Destinies), carry on a perfectly understandable conversation.

And it's readable!

Yes, it’s a feminine deck albeit not feminist. Marketing may well relegate it to the early teen female market segment of the populations, and that’s a shame.

The deck is also multicultural.

Some examples: The 10 of Wands eschews the burdening issues and displays an attitude of study – or ‘workload’. The Knight of Wands wears a parachute and stands in the doorway of an aircraft in flight. In the Four of Cups, she sits in front of the Tarot Café, while a hand enters the picture from the left offering a cup. It's tres mondo coolaroonie!
