This deluxe box houses a beautifully rendered and wholly original tarot card deck and detailed guidebook. Each of the 78 Major and Arcana cards features a tarot archetype depicted in the likeness of a GoT character, place, or object. Artist and tarot expert Craig Cross has hand cut a lino block for each card, which he then prints and watercolours. Tarot writer Liz Dean’s guide book provides an overview of the deck, how to interpret each card, and how to do a reading.

Industry Reviews

“Daenerys is ‘The Empress’. Jon Snow is the ‘King of Cups’. Tyrion is ‘The Fool’, which seems a bit harsh, but it had to be someone, we guess. And there’s 75 more cards to pore over, pairing GOT characters/scenes/dragons with classic tarot tropes. Alongside the handsomely drawn, matt-finish cards, there’s a detailed 106-page hardback book that’ll tide you over till Mr. Martin submits his next opus. Maybe.” Total Film

“I have no doubt this set of Tarot cards will be a massive hit with Game of Thrones fans… a handsome box, a handsome gift!” Books Monthly

How to Use the Book and Deck

As per the tradition of tarot, a tarot deck may be called upon whenever answers, insights, or guidance are needed. Lay out the cards for a reading, then refer to the card meanings in the book which suggest how the cards’ imagery and scenes might play out in your own life. (You may prefer to use just the cards rather than this book, tapping into your personal knowledge of Game of Thrones).

Five tarot spreads are included in the pages of the book, but you could also use your own. Each card, from the Major Arcana to the Cups, Coins, Spears, and Swords of the Minor Arcana, offers a rich and meaningful experience–a treasure trove of much-loved characters, scenes, and stories depicted in a style both surprising and true to the world of Westeros.

 

Key meanings: Endings, rebirth, loss, transformation, release, truth

Arya Stark is Death personified. A trained assassin, she holds her sword, Needle, a symbol of the lives she has taken to avenge those of her family. Behind her is the Hall of Faces in the House of Black and White: a library of masks, or identities, worn to kill. Through her training with Jaqen H’ghar she considers killing off her old identity, to become ‘no one.’ She is released when she affirms her name as Arya Stark. She is reborn with a stronger sense of self.

Key meanings: Love, attraction, decisions, maturity, growth

Atop the Wall in a tender embrace, Jon Snow and Ygritte are about to kiss. These two outsiders, a Wildling and a man labeled as ‘illegitimate,’ have just survived a perilous climb. The skyscape, with its grey and orange, holds the light of love and clouds of doubt: love, like the Wall itself, means risk. This is love, and Ygritte has claimed Jon—’I’m your woman now, Jon Snow.’ Jon looks directly at Ygritte, yet her eyes are cast downward.

Key meanings: Balance, adjustment, resources, guidance, choices, moderation

A gentle, cerebral soul, Samwell Tarly must quickly adjust to life at Castle Black. He cannot fight, but he finds a protector in Jon Snow, who helps him survive the brutality of training. His mind is his greatest resource. After destroying a White Walker with dragonglass, Samwell turns to books for an explanation. Reading at Castle Black’s library, he discovers that obsidian blades may have protected the Children of the Forest.
