'Wizards Tarot' By Barbara Moore, Mieke Janssens

Recommended Posts

Just saw that we're going to have another Wizards Tarot deck early next year by Barbara Moore and Mieke Janssens. I love the artwork. It looks fantastic and I cannot wait to get it!  😍After Corinne Kenner's Wizards Tarot went out of print, I'm glad there will be another beautiful wizards deck available.  One question though - can they not come up with another name? Or add something to it to differentiate it from the other wizard decks? 🤔  

Here is a link to the artist's portfolio, where she has some cards https://www.hireanillustrator.com/i/portfolio/mieke-janssens/#lg=1&slide=13

Her artwork is very beautiful.

Those illustrations are absolutely stunning! One thing I noted though, it looks like there isn't a lot of diversity in this deck. That is unfortunate.

what kind of diversity would you be looking for,,

racial ? 

elemental like fire wizard vs ice wizard like this old game I used to play by koei called gemfire. ?

yes, mostly racial. 

I'm sure a deck like this would have both fire wizards and ice wizards though.

Agreed, Mieke is very talented.   Well, to be fair, these are only a few cards, so hopefully, there will be more in the rest of the deck.  🙂

I like that this deck looks like it will be more about the life of a wizard vs. the wizard school model of the previous deck, that really adds a nice change for me to justify having both!  and Barbara Moore attached to it YAY!  I love the original Wizards tarot, and I agree that it would be nice if they modified the name of this new deck a bit so as to not confuse the two.  They seem like they will be quite different.  The original is a great deck hope this one is as good as that one in its own special way.  A definite must have for me and it comes out the week before my bay! 😜

Good point! I agree, I they certainly look different enough to own both.  I have a feeling if Barabara is involved, it will be really well done.  Yay, that will be a very good birthday present for you! 😄

I agree, with Barbara involved I have expectations 😜 ... and yes, it will make a great b-day present I am sure!

It does seem a bit old fashioned to only have beautiful perfect-bodied and very young Caucasian people! I wonder if the Hermit will be barely past adolescence as well. Lol. No offense meant. Really, it's fine if the deck is targeted for a younger audience. I get that. But I do agree that lack of diversity is unfortunate.
