Customer Reviews

The Steampunk Tarot is a very unusual deck.
Toni Walker
The companion book is very well written and has much interesting discussion of the deck in general, readings and all of the individual cards.
J. Ellison
I can't wait to really start getting used to doing readings so that I can tackle this deck and learn even more.

Delightful! The illustrations should appeal to steampunk afficionados/-as of all stripes and flavors. I particularly like the "Devil" card represented by a mechanical demon gone horribly rogue in a laboratory. Hey, we've all been there...

And since it's not intuitively obvious by the description, this item comes with booklet AND deck.

When I first was looking for this deck, I have to say that it was not clear to me if cards came with the deck or not. Second when I viewed this product the description was (Hardcover) which was not and now I see is changed to paperback. I however still purchased this book with hopes it came with the deck too. And I was very relieved that it did! So far this is a great deck and I'm liking the book as well. I do have to comment on the quality of the paper that Llewellyn choose was poor in my opinion. The cards feel a bit flimsy to me (I have had worse) but some of my cards are already show wearing after a few uses. It would have been nice to see a unique box along with this amazing deck. But I am still excited to have this deck in my collection.

I also have to add that I really love the art work and the different twist each Pip card has. They just flow well together along with the few pages I have begun to read of the manual. I'm excited to digg into more!

The Steampunk Tarot by Barbara Moore and Aly Fell, is an innovative approach to a traditional concept. Without straying too far from the standard Rider Waite, this deck manages to be creative in its own regard, and upholds the integrity of Tarot. Being that I knew nothing about steampunk going into this deck, I had zero expectations. Fortunately, this deck and the accompanying book really impressed me. My only complaint is the quality of materials used. I would have liked to see a sturdy box, gilded edges and a thicker cardstock. Still, the deck manages to rank a 4/5 because it made such an impression on me! Please view my video for the full review!

The art work has a lot of detail which I appreciate, and the steampunk theme well done. The colors are muted with brown overtones sort of like an old vintage photo. I really enjoyed the aviatrix on the mechanical chariot, the devil card is well done and captures my attention, but my favorite card is the knight of pentacles who is a British soldier with pith helmet and red tunic with a mechanical device strapped to his back. For those of you who don't know steampunk is sort of quirky mix of science fiction, steam engines and Victorian era fashion, with some emphasis on gears and clockworks all very neat. Having said all of that this is still a serious and accurate tarot deck. The book itself is some 294 pages with the core meaning of each card given and then a more detailed description, plus a page devoted to the picture of the card tying everything together. I enjoyed the spreads at the back of the book in particular Panoramic Photograph Spread. My only complaint is that the cards feel a little bit thin. Thanks Barbara Moore and artist Aly Fell, for a nicely themed deck.

Step into a world where the past has been rewritten and reimagined. Steampunk is a genre, which came into prominence during the 1980's and 1990's. It incorporates science fiction and fantasy together to create a world that is simply described as "what the past would have looked like if the future had happened sooner". Steampunk is normally placed in the Victorian era, where steam engines are widely used. What would tarot look with this wonderful spin on history? Barbara Moore along with artist Aly Fell has manifested this in a well-executed deck that is The Steampunk Tarot.

I am a big fan of Barbara Moore's work within the tarot field. I recently reviewed her new book Tarot Spreads: Layouts & Techniques to Empower Your Readings and was dying to get my hands on the Steampunk Tarot because this is Barbara's first deck she has commissioned and just loved the teasers should would post on Facebook. So now that I had the deck in my possession for some time I present here my opinions and thoughts, oh lord where do I start?

Firstly let me start with the artwork. Aly Fell did an excellent job at creating this deck. The artwork was done digitally but you would never suspect it because it looks it was drawn by hand. The colors are soft and subdued with some areas of contrasts colors such as The Hermit's lantern, which emits electric blue shocks. The reds of The Empress and Justice are rich. The stained glass of the 5 of Pentacles creates a huge contrast against the dark snowing scene, which is welcoming. The black borders are always a huge plus on any deck especially with this deck since it blends well with the overall color tone of the deck. The card stock is standard for what Llewellyn produces, I really would like to see them step their game up and get a thicker cardstock.

Just recently bought the deck from a bookstore, And though I'm more accustomed to advanced decks such as the Hermetic and Thoth deck I decided I needed one to place on the side specifically for divination. I've always been a big fan of the steampunk genre so needless to say this deck caught my eye like a bird to popcorn. Love that its a rework of the Rider-waite which means the ideas and symbolism are pretty similar, however sometimes it gets too simplistic which is why I can't give it the full extent of my appreciation. This deck is however great for practical use and aside from a few things that are more personal anal retentive things, I can see this deck and me having a long future together!!
