Heart and Hands Tarot
The Heart & Hands Tarot deck is a labor of love completed over the course of ten years by artist and illustrator Liz Blackbird.
The deck’s eclectic imagery is rooted in the traditional figures and symbolism of the classic Rider-Waite/Colman Smith tarot deck and is stylistically unified by an intricate line-drawing technique.
The court cards consist of a King, a Queen, a Prince, and a Princess, and the numbered cards feature full illustrations, rather than simple "pip" drawings. Flowers and figures spill from the images' frames—the exuberance of the illustrations reflects the power of the cards and the artist's joy in creating them. Like a mandala or an illuminated manuscript, the detailed illustrations invite extended contemplation and reveal more the longer you look.
