Established by H.P. Lovecraft in the span of a few short stories, the Cthulhu mythos has been incorporated into popular culture and contemporary fantasy production, most recently in HBO’s hit series Lovecraft Country. Made by connoisseurs and lovers of Lovecraft, Abrams is honored to present the first tarot deck solely dedicated to this special universe.
This complete tarot contains 78 illustrated cards, including 22 major and 56 minor arcana.
All decks will be packaged with a 32-page booklet that will help with the interpretation of each card.
The illustrations of the Cthulhu Dark Arts Tarot were made by Førtifem. First entirely drawn by hand, each illustration was scanned and then colored using a computer. To ensure that the finished product honors the quality of the illustrations, as well as the greatness of the Cthulhu Mythos, they are printed on high quality paper.
The format (3.35″ x 6.50″) chosen for this Cthulhu Mythos-inspired tarot is much larger than the usual divinatory tarot decks, including the Tarot of Marseille. This format is close to one of the oldest tarot decks, the “Visconti-Sforza” created by the artist Bonifacio Bembo between 1428 and 1447.
