  • Help Me Build A 45 Tarot Deck

    The idea occurred to me that it may be possible and would certainly be fun to work a tarot deck from the picture sleeves of 45s.

    Wikipedia breaks the original occult tarot deck thus:

    • The Major Arcana (greater secrets), or trump cards, consists of 22 cards without suits: The Magician, The High Priestess, The Empress, The Emperor, The Hierophant, The Lovers, The Chariot, Strength, The Hermit, Wheel of Fortune, Justice, The Hanged Man, Death, Temperance, The Devil, The Tower, The Star, The Moon, The Sun, Judgement, The World and The Fool. Cards from The Magician to The World are numbered in Roman numerals from I to XXI, while The Fool is the only unnumbered card, sometimes placed at the beginning of the deck as 0, or at the end as XXII.
    • The Minor Arcana (lesser secrets) consists of 56 cards, divided into four suits of 14 cards each; ten numbered cards and four court cards. The court cards are the King, Queen, Knight and Page/Jack, in each of the four tarot suits. The traditional Italian tarot suits are swords, batons/wands, coins and cups; in modern tarot decks, however, the batons suit is often called wands, rods or staves, while the coins suit is often called pentacles or disks.

    Makes an obvious sense to pass the quest over to board of vast esoteric knowledge
    I’m sure with a lax attitude, loose fit policy a fullish deck could be arrived at.
    Let the game commence
    (Note: aim to include the picture of the sleeve if you post a reply)

      High Priestess?



      This sort of thing?



      Too literal?
      Give us some pointers.

      You've just got to be close to it all

          I'm not - it's not a 45....a fun idea for sure, but are we going for stuff that matches the words...like this...



          ...or the images (which I'm not familiar with, being a boring rationalist and all....)?

            The posted examples, thus far, are all great*, I posted the notion, almost immediately as it popped up in my head, so really hadn't envisaged anything concrete, but all of them seem perfectly fit for purpose.
            I can't claim to be in any sense schooled in tarot but have often thought of devising my own,
            image or title are equally valid, a marriage of both is better.
            I'll start racking my own brain later on tonight.
            *aim to keep them 45s, LPs might prove unwieldly, but feel free to post anyways, if it carries killer artwork and/or an apt title.

                    Also not a 45, but a decent "Temperance"
