The Tarot Review

The Steampunk Tarot

Posted by: The Tarosophist on: March 28, 2012

The Steampunk Tarot, by Barbara Moore and Aly Fell (pub. Llewellyn, 2011) video reviewed “out of the box” by Marcus Katz.

In this “straight out of the box” review, Marcus discusses Steampunk, gears, Babbage’s computer, reveals what his brother does as a living, provides a “Difference Engine” spread to investigate the deck, talks about shuffling and alludes to a terrible joke about four candles. The book and deck are reviewed in terms of their wonderful artwork, “elegant imagination” and for providing a shift of perspective beyond any merely novelty use of the Steampunk theme.

Barbara Moore will also be presenting her deck at the excellent Steampunk event, TeslaCon3, November 30th – December 2nd, 2012.
