Some of you may remember the Thoth-inspired deck I posted about once upon a time ago, the Rosetta Tarot. Well, the same artist, M.M. Meleen, is working on her second deck. It’s called Tabula Mundi Nox et Lux edition (black and white/line drawings). Right now it’s Major Arcana/ black and white only, although eventually she plans to release a fully colored, full deck version.
This is another Thoth-y flavored deck in terms of inspiration and symbolism. And if you’re interested in getting a grasp on the esoteric symbolism, I would highly recommend getting the book to go along with the deck. I have the Rosetta book and it’s BEYOND obvious the woman knows her stuff, with a very in-depth treatment of the symbolism behind each card. It’s so rare to find decks where the creator is both a gifted artist and a gifted Taroist. But I’m confident that’s what you can expect from this one.
Here’s a little peek into the deck’s birth, with an time lapse video showing the creation of several cards.
How cool is that?!

- Want your own copy of this deck? She has a Kickstarter set up to help finance the printing where you can pre-order.
