78 Tarot Mythical- 2018
78 Tarot Mythical- 2018
This listing is for our very latest deck published in 2018 - 78 Tarot Mythical - Tarot of the Legendary. If you are not familiar with the 78 Tarot Project - we are a group of artists that collaboratively produce a LIMITED EDITION crowd funded deck every year by creating just one card apiece. We choose a theme every year, and this year we have created a gorgeous deck filled with Mythical creatures, Gods and Goddesses and Legends from all over the world.
The artists in our project range from legendary Tarot and Fantasy artists, to incredible artists just starting out in their careers. The wide variety of talent orchestrates a deck filled with energy and vibrancy that interprets the Tarot from their own experiences and view points. Our decks are chock full of international cultures and styles and they are a masterpiece to hold.
As a deck collector myself, I am a complete card stock snob and have searched high and wide for the printer we use, and I assure you - the quality of our decks are superb quality that will last a long time no matter how many times they are used.
Mythical is the first of our decks to have gilded edging - and it is so beautiful! It comes in a magnetic clamshell box, and for the first time - contains colored pictures of the artwork in the guidebook (LWB) that accompanies each deck.
If you want to have the full set, you can add the 20 inch screen printed cloth and the 8 by 6 inch zippered case. Or you can purchase these items separately, if you prefer.

-------More About of the Deck & Project-------
81 Artists have created another epic Tarot deck, with another epic theme to weave into the Tarot story. This time we have scoured the globe, and searched throughout history, for Gods & Goddesses, Fantastic Beasts, and everything in between. All woven into rich and colorful symbolism to tell the story of each Tarot card.
78 Tarot Mythical is a Limited Edition Deck - and the only copies that are printed are the ones printed with Kickstarter funds. The more we raise, the more we are able to print - but they are never reprinted, and due to contractual obligation, they legally can't ever be reprinted. We do it this way so our decks are really one of a kind collector's pieces that only a thousand or so people will get to own in this life. People who have all of our decks often tell us how fun it is to read with them all at once, especially when they draw the same artist for the same reading with different decks.
Each Tarot card was carefully created by one of our 81 international artists spanning over 15 countries.
We have many returning artists for this deck, including Meredith Dillman, Carla Morrow, Jasmine Becket-Griffith, Michael Banks, Larry Elmore, Simona Candini, Jessica Douglas, Leilani Joy, Selina Fenech, Ravynne Phelan, Enamorte, Italia Ruotolo and Scott Holloway to name a few. A full list of our wonderful artists can be found at the end of this page.
We're privileged to work with fantastic artists on this project, some of whom bring their own experiences of creating art for Oracle and Tarot decks, or publishing decks themselves.
It has been absolutely thrilling for us to work with some of our own Tarot heroes, such as Ravynne Phelan, who has created The Dreams of Gaia Tarot, as well as creating and illustrating several oracle decks, including the Messenger Oracle. Deja Drewit, who created The My Quality Time Oracle Deck, Selina Fenech who illustrated the Wild Wisdom of the Faery Oracle, and the Oracle of the Mermaids. Tanya Bond, who created the Duality Deck, and our very own dream team member & 78 one of 78 Tarot's organizers - Joanna Nelson, who created the Monstarot & Cat Land deck.
78 Tarot decks are fully functional and rich in symbolism. With each artist creating only one image for the deck, it allows them to really pour themselves into the classic history of their card – whilst putting a modern themed twist to it. Each of our decks have a theme to follow, which we find lends a cohesiveness in the storytelling from 78 different storytellers.
