German watercolor artist Christine Zillich has created an intriguing Thoth-style tarot deck. This contemporary pocket-sized deck is packed with powerful imagery. Beneath the colorful surface are layers of meaning and archetypal symbolism through which Zillich Tarot visually explores mythological and astrological influences. The cards in this 78-card deck present Thoth keywords as well as kabbalistic signs. In the 60-page booklet Johan Von Kirschner explains the symbolism and meaning of each card.
