New book offers a fresh look at the stories behind the art and history of tarot decks
Easley and Archer begin their book with the earliest known Visconti deck of the 15th century, and work their way to the niche decks of today, highlighting the artists, styles, and cultures found in the decks in between.



NEW YORK, NY.- The History of Tarot Art (Epic Ink / September 28, 2021 / US $50.00) offers a fresh and accessible look at the art styles, artists, and history behind more than a dozen of the world’s most noteworthy tarot decks.

Guided by Holly Adams Easley and Esther Joy Archer, hosts of the popular Wildly Tarot podcast, this deluxe collector’s book provides a fresh look at the influence of tarot from its beginnings to today. The elegant slipcase, 24 removable Sola-Busca tarot cards, and illustrated fold-out timeline with important dates in tarot development make this package a must-have for any tarot fan.

The History of Tarot Art shows how tarot morphed from a fifteenth century card game to a popular modern activity. Learn more about the stories behind the art of tarot’s most influential decks, like Rider-Waite-Smith and Aleister Crowley’s Thoth Tarot, as well as the female artists whose work was often overshadowed in their time. It also takes a close look at the Visconti, Sola-Busca, Tarot de Marseille, Aquarian, Morgan-Greer, Motherpeace, Cosmic, Druidcraft, Wild Unknown, and Deviant Moon decks, alongside dozens of contemporary decks. In many cases, you’ll see how tarot art reflects its era. The Morgan-Greer deck, for example, could only have been born in the 1970s. More recent decks, such as Black Power Tarot and Fifth Spirit Tarot, aim to represent more diverse experiences in regard to race, gender, and sexuality.

The book also provides tips for doing your own tarot readings and a cheat sheet on the meanings of the Rider-Waite-Smith, Thoth, and Tarot de Marseille cards.

Whether you're a longtime tarot practitioner or a newcomer to the practice, you'll find fascinating new insights in this retrospective.

Holly Adams Easley is a lifelong spiritual searcher with a fondness for surrounding herself with beautiful things. Her first exposure to card-reading came at the hands of a friendly nun and a bowl of small angel cards in the early 2000s, but she has been putting her efforts towards studying, collecting, and reading tarot cards since 2016. An academic advisor at a large public university by day, Holly emphasizes the allure of growth, the importance of knowing yourself, and the joy of learning, both at work and in life. Esther Joy Archer has been an avid tarot reader, deck creator, collector, and tarot educator since 2017. Esther currently lives in South Korea where she continued her career in education by teaching elementary students in a small town. She lives with her husband, adorable dogs, and a vast collection of reptiles. Always a spiritual person, she found tarot to be a unique tool to empower herself and others in their own journeys. Together they co-host the Wildly Tarot podcast, discussing tarot reading, tarot decks, and mystical life.
