That is not dead which can eternal lie,
And with strange eons even death may die.
-- Necronomicon

The Necronomicon Tarot by Donald Tyson, illustrated by Anne Stokes, is a brilliant adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's work to the Tarot format. For those not familiar with HPL, he was an early 20th century pulp fiction writer whose work focused on the other-worldly horrors of ancient magic and forgotten civilizations. He created the Necronomicon as a literary device, an imaginary tome of ancient magic upon which much of his hideous mythology was based. Tyson himself has continued that lineage with two novels and this Tarot, the third in his trilogy. The Tarot comes in a boxed book and deck set, together with a mosquito-net style bag. Given the subject matter, I was a little disappointed that it did not include a shrunken head, or at the very least some dusty old bones, but I suppose there are postal regulations to contend with.

The deck itself is of standard size, and the usual Tarot format of 22 Major Arcana cards, and a Minor Arcana in four suits of 10 plus four court cards. The art work is vivid and brightly colored, set against a black background that makes the cards almost glow. The design of the Major Arcana itself is roughly traditional (whatever that really means), with the substitutions one would expect for the theme. Most of them will be immediately recognized by students of the genre: Nyarlathotep is the Magician, Dagon is the Hierophant, the Hounds of Leng haunt the Moon, and of course Great Cthulhu himself appears as the Devil. Each suit of the Minor Arcana is based on a particular theme, and for the most part, the cards are descriptively illustrated, and follow the Golden Dawn pattern.

I do find this deck remarably dark and juicy in ways that are atypical in most other decks. While the story lines in the minor arcana are well done and the text supports them well, it is very 'exclusive' in nature, meaning that the meanings aren't transferable to another reading but with that deck alone. Not to bad in that way, but I'd prefer something with a tad bit more universal twist. The deck though is basically tailored to the necromanian universe and it presents it well and can offer some intruging readings as the artwork is a little spooky and dark and very meanacing, but sometimes overdone and a tad bit overy dramatic. If you like dark decks then don't pass this one up. It can really give one quiet a pause along that vein.

These cards are awesome. I hate to open with such a mundane line, but there really is no other way of expressing the jublilation fostered by the dark images of this deck. The Author takes great pains to adhere to the Golden Dawn Tarot Model, and with great success. The gods, devils, and people you encounter throughout the tarot journey within this deck create a gloomy, darker miasma in the room, but the meanings ascribed to the cards couple with the images in a perfect blend of harmony and despair. True the Necronomicon is not the most happy-go-lucky text (or texts however you believe) but this deck deals with the dark in such a way that enlightens. This deck is unique in its delivery of symbolism and has a rich mythos behind it. Great for lovers of HP Lovecraft, Tyson, or just those of us who do not see sunny-faced magic bunnies dancing among candy-coated mountaintops in our dreams. (If you do see such things, this tarot is probably not for you.) This Deck is for any of us who dare to look into the chasm of the human psyche without the fear of being swallowed by the darkness within.

I found this Tarot deck fun to look at and play with. While I do not believe I would use it for real Divination, still I will use it for some Pathworking experiences with the Mythos.

The artwork is pretty and the colors are truly stunning. I would like to see better drawn art but I realize that that is probably not going to happen where the Cthulhu Mythos is concerned. Thus this deck will serve as a nice way to Pathwork as well as put me in the mood to read some Lovecraft and Chtulhu Mythos works.

I gave it 4 out of 5 possible stars because I don't agree with some of the card associations regarding characters from the Mythos. I do not feel the need to justify this to anyone as it is only 'my' personal opinion and taste however if you're new to Tarot, Sorcery or Cthulhu Mythos & Lovecraftiana, then this deck will be something you want to explore.

I am a huge Lovecraft fan, and I went with this particular deck for just that reason. The meanings of the cards are a lot easier for me to remember because I'm familiar with the lore, I feel like I have a good connection with the deck, and the few tarot readings I've given so far have been ABSOLUTELY AMAZING and dead on accurate - likely because I feel such a close kinship to the deck. I think it's an excellent starter deck, although the cards aren't very much like traditional cards and to some people are a bit off putting. I don't feel like this deck could replace a traditional tarot deck, but it definitely makes a fantastic "theatrical" deck for when you want a skeptic to doubt their own skepticism. The cards are very lively, and I love how the vibrant images speak to you and help with remembering the various meanings.

I always have this deck with me, and although I don't feel like it could replace a more traditional deck, it's definitely a great addition to any fan of the Lovecraftian lore.
