World-renowned artist Maggie Kneen has taken her inspiration for Old English Tarot from the medieval English manuscript Luttrell Psalter, written and illustrated in the 14th century by Sir Geoffrey Luttrell. The detailed images, ranging from peasant life to religious scenes, provide a visual reference for everyday life in medieval England. Its richly patterned, heraldic borders and distinctive colors schemes directly inspired Old English Tarot.
This unique deck invites you to relax and let your imagination explore a long ago era when possibilities were endless. Old English Tarot inspires a peaceful atmosphere for readings and meditation.
Maggie Kneen is best-known for illustrating some of the most beloved children’s books including The Snow Bear, Chocolate Moose, Babe: The Gallant Pig and numerous others. She also provided the illustrations for the Psy-Cards System.

Basically a Marseilles type deck but in RWS order with VIII as Strength. Full size pips over small scenes at the bottom that refer in their own way to the RWS meanings, except for a few which are a bit cryptic without some knowledge of the Luttrell Psalter. A beautiful deck, gentle but not watered down. Lovely decoration on the backs. Quite excellent.
