The ultimate must-have for any Jane Austen fan, this gorgeous set of 53 tarot cards features hand-drawn characters and objects from Austen’s enduring novels.
Noted Jane Austen artist Jacqui Oakley brings her beautiful work to the world of tarot with this sublime and whimsical package. Featuring 53 characters (including Elizabeth Bennet, Mr. Darcy, Elinor Dashwood, and more) and objects (such as well-trimmed bonnets and a stack of novels) from Austen’s books, each card doubles as a playing card and tarot card. With Mr. Wickham from Pride and Prejudice as the Devil, a teapot representing strength, and Austen herself as the Magician, it’s perfect for both longtime and new Austen fans.
Oversized, sleek, and sophisticated, this deck comes in a hinged cigar box decorated with foil stamping and a wafer seal enclosure, and is accompanied by a booklet containing a brief overview of tarot and a guide to the cards and the world of Austen.
FORMAT DESCRIPTION: Same as Illuminated Tarot, but with a hinged box and a wafer seal enclosure rather than shrinkwrapping. The exterior of the box is foil stamped.
GREAT FOR JANE NEWBIES: You don’t have to have read all—or any, for that matter—of Jane Austen’s books to enjoy this set. The booklet includes enough information about the character, scene, or object from each card along with the plot point from the corresponding novel, making this a novel way to discover Pride and Prejudice, Northanger Abbey, Sense and Sensibility, Emma, Persuasion, and Mansfield Park.
ENCHANTING ART: Jacqui Oakley is a well-known illustrator who has previously illustrated our own Color Me Jane (13k net).
