THE ART OF THE HARDY TAROT:

The Hardy Tarot is completely hand illustrated. This deck features a unique and vibrant take on traditional tarot symbolism in colors that are rich and earthy. Within the imagery of each card a little story unfolds told through color and natural symbols, making this a wonderful deck for reading intuitively. The beautifully detailed illustrations are inspired by art nouveau imagery and early 20th century folk art. They were all laboriously hand rendered in colored pencil, ink, and marker over the course of two years. Many of the cards in this deck do include some artistic (not sexually explicit) nudity.


THE FULL BLEED VERSION:

This standard sized full-bleed version of my hand illustrated tarot deck highlights the artwork with notably larger image sizes than the original (white bordered) version and attractive hand illustrated head and foot borders. The finished cards are printed on sturdy smooth finish card stock with natural (un-dyed) edges and packed in lovely gloss finish tuck boxes featuring the same design as the gorgeous emerald green card backs. Each deck comes signed by the artist on the inside flap of the box. This is an open edition deck, and is the most popular version of my deck.


THE STRUCTURE OF THE HARDY TAROT:

The Hardy Tarot is a traditional full 78 card tarot deck. It is comprised of 22 Major Arcana cards and 56 Minor Arcana cards which are divided into 4 suits.

The Major Arcana cards are arranged as follows:
0- The Fool, I- The Magician, II- The Priestess, III- The Empress, IV- The Emperor, V- The Priest (referred to in some other decks as The Hierophant or Pope), VI- The Lovers, VII- The Chariot, VIII- Justice (this card is number XI in many other decks, but is VII in mine as it is in the Thoth tarot), XI- The Hermit, X- Fortune, XI- Strength (number VIII in some other decks), XII The Hanged Man, XIII- Death, XIV- Temperance, XV- The Devil, XVI- The Tower, XVII- The Star, XVIII- The Moon, XIX- The Sun, XX- Judgement, XXI- The World

The suits of the Minor Arcana are: Wands, Cups, Swords, and Discs. Each suit contains an ace (which represents the theme or essence of the suit), numbers 2 - 10, and the court cards (page, prince, queen, and knight.) This differs slightly from traditional decks in that kings have been replaced with princes and the order (or hierarchy) is slightly different. This was done intentionally because I wanted to create a system that felt less patriarchal with a feeling of balance and gender equality. The princes in this deck share the traits of their equivalent (king) in other decks, but they have a more gentle energy. It was for the same reason that I chose to represent my pages as female figures.


READING THE HARDY TAROT:

As it is designed to be read intuitively, this deck DOES NOT currently have an accompanying guide book, but because it adheres fairly closely to the traditional interpretations of RWS style decks there are a wide variety of general tarot reference books that can be used to help you deepen your understanding of these gorgeous cards. Because the back design is symmetrical vertically as well as horizontally, the cards may be read with reversals, which I recommend because of the added depth and clarity it brings to readings.


***ADDITIONAL DETAILS***

I offer gift wrapping on this item for a small additional fee. I wrap items neatly in bright solid colored matte finish paper and shiny satin finish ribbon. See last two images for wrapping samples and color options. You may request a ribbon color if you have a preference, otherwise I will just choose one that I think looks nice with your chosen paper. Please let me know if you wish to include a gift tag or gift message in the "notes to seller." Please limit the length of the gift message to no more that two written paragraphs.

I have quantity based discounts available on all of my decks for retailers. If you are interested in carrying the Hardy Tarot in your shop please contact me for details.

These cards are beautiful! Intricate, gorgeous art on each one. They're also very sturdy and easy to shuffle. They connect very well with me and my intuition, and have such a lovely, deep vibe that can only be obtained from passionate art. Thank you, Colleen. These cards are AMAZING!

I absolutely adore this deck. The art is incredible, the color and design of the card backs are lovely (reversible!), and the cardstock is top notch. It’s become of my my most used decks very quickly. :)
