A new deck that faithfully follows the ‘Tarot de Marseille’ style while updating it to include fresh symbolism and queer flair.
In particular, outfits and some of locations have been inspired by the Berlin underground queer party scene while the baroque symbolism of the minor arcana has been updated with floral elements based upon their classical meanings. The guidebook explains the meanings of the flowers and the cards.
Creator Rosario Salerno says: "It has taken about two years to complete this new tarot deck and it’s been a labor of love. I’ve studied some of the classic Tarot de Marseille decks in order to make my deck faithful and respectful of their most important symbols, colors and the details contained within the Marseille tradition. However, in order for these cards to fit into our contemporary world I’ve made adjustments, with regards to the style of the cards and their meanings."
