Zillich Tarot In a Tin
« on: January 01, 2018, 04:58:47 AM »
Coming this Spring 2018 from US Games - the Zillich Tarot in a Tin. It's a Thoth-based deck that features intriguing watercolor artwork from Christine Zillich.



The initial printer proofs from USG made its Thoth inspiration more evident, with the corresponding Hebrew letter displayed for the Majors and the Thoth keyword shown for the minors. Sadly, no astrological correspondence symbols are shown. The USG release will come with English text, as shown below.

The imagery is different from the Thoth since the minors display full images and not pips. The majors and courts also diverge from the Thoth.



I must say tho - the watercolor art in the cards is simply exquisite. I definitely want it. Coming in a Tin box, the deck would most probably be pocket-sized..

To see the art in most of the cards, check out the artist's Facebook page.

I like the look of that. Where was it published before ?

That's a gorgeous deck. It reminds me a little of the Tarot of the Spirit. I would rather have the full-size edition, too.

My apologies, gregory, I jumped the gun on that one. In mid-2016, the creator said that the art for the 85 cards has been finished, she's only working on the booklet then, and she was also taking about the publishing and the printing process. Almost a year later, she said that USG snapped the deck up, so I surmised that the cards must have been successfully published in the interim. The physical cards with German titles shown in the first pic may have been mock-ups.

That was my impression too, albeit it looks more like its lighter, airier sister. I hope it would eventually be available in a regular size too, FLiz.

Btw, here is a promotion for USG's early 2018 offerings that includes the Zillich:

This looks beautiful - I quite like the decks in a tin but hope it will be available in a larger size too.

...and I've pre-ordered.  Enablers.   :P



EK, thanks for the heads up!
(Btw, I can't see your images for some reason, but thanks for the facebook link.)

(Amazon UK says May 15, while Amazon US says May 24.  I ordered from Book Depository, a lot cheaper for me with free international shipping. They said it was coming from the UK and shipping in 2 days, but we'll see how it goes...)

Mine arrived today. Really pleased I got this one. The watercolour art is beautiful, it is influenced by the Thoth and the booklet is very well written.

Received mine today. Very summery feel. Warm and light. One odd little thing I noticed:
XX is called Justice

Card XI is Adjustment, Thoth equivalent of RWS Justice, so nothing surprising there. I expected XX to either be The Aeon or Judgement. The image and lwb description make me think of Judgement.

I'm guessing it's probably not a typo, since XX is also titled Justice in the lwb. I don't really mind for myself; it's got all the hallmarks of Judgement. But I'm curious about her decision. (I should probably check facebook etc. to see if she commented on it, but if anyone happens to know, I'd be interested...)  :)
