Before the best-selling Prisma Visions Tarot, there was Light Visions..an imaginative and totally original tarot by LA-based illustrator James R Eads. A limited run of just 500 decks meant that the original Light Visions Tarot is now a collectors’ item. Now, to celebrate its 5-year anniversary, artist James R Eads has re-released Light Visions in a new form.
The Light Visions Tarot is a highly imaginative work of art that follows classic tarot symbolism with a fresh modern approach. It’s a timeless deck that takes cues from impressionistic surreal styles of the past, enchanting imagery of the present and clairvoyant visions of the future. Softer in feel than the Prisma Visions, the Light Visions Tarot has an old-fashioned atmosphere and muted tones, (though the illustrations themselves are very similar.)
One of the most special and unique features of this deck is the minor arcana. When placed in order, the 14 cards of each suit create a panoramic story, a single image spanning the entire suit. These very high-quality cards also have flashing gold edges.
This deck is a unique and whimsical play on the classic tarot deck and features hand-drawn highly detailed cards. Despite the small frame of the cards, each was executed on such a large scale that the cards have developed into individual works of art. The Light Visions Tarot deck combines both borderless and bordered cards into one cohesive and enchanting work of art.
This is a high-quality 79 card deck complete with a small yet detailed 100-page guidebook, presented in a sturdy flip-top box with gold detailing. It makes a wonderful partner for the Prisma Visions Tarot, and is a must for collectors!
