This Might Hurt Tarot Deck
The This Might Hurt Tarot is a modern classic. Created with great care and attention to detail by Isabella Rotman, this deck pays homage to the traditions and symbols of the Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot but is firmly rooted in the modern world where diversity is embraced. The cards themselves measure 4.75"x 2.75" and are printed on high-quality 350 gsm matte art paper. Each card has a shiny gilded edge to add just a bit of magic, available in holographic pearl or holographic black. The deck comes in a solid cardboard box with gold foil and magnetic closure, complete with a guidebook with an introduction, card descriptions, and a full-page black and white image of each card.
Isabella is a cartoonist, illustrator, and self publisher from Maine living and drawing in Chicago. She started drawing this tarot deck because she was learning how to read tarot cards for herself, and she learns by drawing. What started as a casual project where she would draw cards to learn their symbolism quickly turned into a full 78 -card deck that she has been obsessively and joyfully drawing for over two years.
