Welcome to The Textured Tarot.

The creation of this deck sprung from a desire to make something for personal growth that is accessible to understand and fashioned in a way that felt more in keeping with the authors' values around Nature, inclusiveness, compassion, and kindness.

This deck is an approachable gateway for people new to tarot (particularly those who fear it), or a collectors deck for tarot card lovers. The Author, Lisa McLoughlin, can also see it complimenting many other tarot and oracle card deck readings.

With a beautiful mix of visual ideas of what it means to be human– it is an eclectic fusion of traditional, contemporary, symbolic, and quirky illustrations. Lisa approached this project with an open heart, as an artist interpreting the information before her. The effect is created by digitally collaging fragments of digital images, layered textures, digital art, hand-drawn art with stitched textiles.

The tarot is loosely themed around the Rider-Waite-Smith deck. If you start at the Major Arcana, flow into the Court cards and then end up at the Pips,. You’ll notice the subtle variation in style that evolved during Lisa's journey creating this deck. "I love that about them!" - Lisa McLoughlin

This 78 card deck is printed in full-bleed colour, plastic-coated, 395um, Zanta Box Board, and matt laminated. Each card is of Standard tarot size at 120mm x 70mm. The deck and mini-booklet fit into a fully printed rigid box.

PLEASE NOTE: this deck is not suitable for 'Riffle' shuffling as I wish to reduce the amount of plastic used in producing the cards. Also, the card stock is thick enough to ensure a quality feel and extend the life of the deck.

The mini-booklet included provides researched word prompts and phrases behind the meaning of each card. This will help ground you in their illustrated intention. For this particular deck, Lisa took a different approach using collaged pieces of digital photography mixed with textures, digital drawing, and re-usable stitching on textiles.

On darker coloured cards, it is expected that the corners and edges will naturally wear a little over time. On initial research, Lisa gained a sense that there is an overall preference for 'no borders' around the images of tarot cards (white borders naturally protect the corners of printed images).

On social media, the hashtag for this deck is #thetexturedtarot. If you would like to communicate your journey with this special deck then Lisa would be delighted to meet you there.
