The Cheimonette Tarot is a new kind of deck: a collaborative approach to tarot, within a structure of original & traditional symbolism. The Cheimonette Tarot has 80 cards with elegant ink and watercolor illustrations. The card art mixes new interpretations of old imagery, new and historic mythology, and the artist's own personal vision. The deck was self-published and printed by Carta Mundi, thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign.
Six of the west coast's most talented musicians were inspired to write original songs and music about the artwork and concepts in the Cheimonette Tarot deck. They have produced an album that is a mixture of pop electronica and soulful vocals, darkly beautiful gothic cabaret and moody lullaby-ballads about grief and redemption, elegant cello music paired with sweet songs and eerie ambient electronica.
