Tarot Deck Review:
Experimental Tarot

Artist: Samvado Gunnar Kossatz
Card Set
Publisher: US Games Systems
Publication date: July 1997
ISBN: 0880791284

I was actually introduced to this deck by its being used in the "Tarot" software by Expert Software; it's one of three decks used in their CD-ROM. Any of you who have been exposed to or used clip art from the Corel line of clip art albums (CorelDraw!, Corel Gallery) will recognize many of the images, as the artist drew almost entirely on that material to create the cards. The interpretations are a bit different, too. The names of most of the cards have been changed, although the subject and interpretation are still based on the traditional ones. Gunnar has also chosen to go back to the "original" names for the minor arcana suits. They become Fire, Air, Earth and Water in this deck. This is a rather personal deck. While I enjoyed seeing how Mr. Kossatz interpreted the traditional deck into a more "universal" format, I'm sure others will absolutely hate them.
