78 colourful watercolor illustrations make up the Sasuraibito Tarot deck. While some cards follow common iconography fairly closely (Strength, The World), others diverge strongly from tradition (Death, Judgment). Common themes in the deck are the key points in the cycle of life, embracing endings and keeping the fool’s open mind.
“The Japanese word “sasuraibito” most closely translates to “wanderer.” It’s an old-fashioned literary term that is falling out of use, meant to describe a person ever-seeking, searching for a place of healing and refuge. This deck is designed to aid the curious wanderer, and accompany you on your adventures to come.”
– Creator Stasia Burrington.
The cards have gilded edges and a gloss laminate, and come housed in a sturdy lidded box. The artwork for this deck was created over the course of two years, and completed in February 2017. The deck is accompanied by a guidebook which includes card meanings and extra writing about the card designs.
