Tarot Disassembled is a full 78-card tarot deck that deconstructs and re-examines the traditional symbolism found in the classic Smith-Waite Tarot deck. Utilizing a bright color palette and simple, bold graphics, each card reveals a pattern created from a fresh arrangement of the traditional symbols.
One of the most unique tenants of this deck is the almost complete absence of human representation. This allows the user of the deck to connect with the symbols in a completely intuitive way free from any pictorial narrative around gender, skin color, age, size, ability or any other human constructs.
I have loved playing with various Tarot decks all of my adult life. But digging into the research for Tarot Disassembled has been like going on a walk in the forest and discovering that every tiny rock and leaf holds hidden treasure underneath. Simply put: I didn’t know how much I didn’t know. The reverence and fascination I have always had for Tarot has only been compounded by discovering the layers upon layers of meaning each individual symbol holds. My hope is that this deck will stir up some of that same excitement for you!
I believe this deck can be used and enjoyed by seasoned Tarot readers and complete novices alike. The simplicity of the visual symbols makes it a great first deck for a newbie, while the complexity of the visual information makes it a great deep dive deck for a pro.

Beautiful deck. Super intuitively designed & the guidebook explains each piece of symbolism so well. Card stock is thick & matte, so it was a little bit of a learning curve to shuffling it, but they’re very durable and have held up well with bridge shuffling and being kinda rough on em. The edges don’t seem to be bending, or getting nicks while shuffling, which is great! I’ve been shuffling them all the time as a means of keeping my hands busy when I’m idle and they still look brand new after a few weeks. Very impressed with the amount of love put into the packaging upon receiving my box as well, both were wrapped very well and I loved the included stickers so much I’m actually stitching them onto my leather purse. <3 couldn’t recommend this deck more, I originally saw someone review it on tiktok and immediately came to purchase
Love my purchase!! So bright & colorful!! I got both the tarot deck & the guide book. Excellent shipping, VERY WELL PACKAGED, so my deck & book arrived in perfect condition! Top quality card stock, I can tell it was made to last! The deck, box, & the guidebook have that rose petal finish which I really like even though the cards are a little bit more difficult to work with since they don't glide against each other. But they feel so good in the hand!! The guide book is packed with information (excellent deck companion) & the cards give me a whole new perspective of the traditional RWS. Couple of quality stickers, signed thank you card, & a business card with web information on the deck rounded out my order. Couldn't be happier adding this AWESOME deck to my collection, especially since I know it's one that I'm going to use.
Truly one of the best tarot card decks I bought so far !!! I am so in love with my purchase I almost want to buy a second just for collecting it in case it is ever discontinued. The quality of the cards is exceptional. They are velvety which I didn’t expect and which I love. The box is also soft touch and the design is absolutely amazing. The colors: the choice for colors is really contemporary and carefully set up. The edges are red which accentuate the presence of the colors even more. The designs: the symbolic designs mimic the ones of older cars decks. It’s minimalistic and very symbolic. Interpretation of cards: It’s really easy to project meaning onto the cards because they have a set of symbols that guide your readings. I am a product designer so I work with elements of design daily. I am a true fan!! Good job
I think the idea of these are so cool! I personally like this card stock. A bit stiff, deck is a bit thick but I like that. When I first looked at them I though, that’s weird. Then I looked at the symbols and it all made sense. Like.. it almost took the clutter away from the scenes in regular RWS imagery. Very excited to use it and I did also purchase the book which I would absolutely recommend if you’re thinking about this deck. I’ve made some questionable purchases from Etsy that I regretted but this was not one. Absolutely thrilled to have this is my collection.
