Part III: THE FANTASY SHOWCASE TAROT
LEFT: Fantasy Showcase. RIGHT: Rider/Waite/Smith.
And here's The Two of Cups by John Kirby. I'm not fond of this art-style, either, though again the content is quite traditional for the Two of Cups. My roommate, after looking through The Fantasy Showcase Tarot, showed me artwork by Kirby on a Terry Pratchett book cover. His style works better there, I think, than with Tarot. Though I hasten to add this is a personal preference (i.e, I generally don't care for the idealization and/or objectification of women's bodies in art, or of men's, for that matter):
OK, so now blogger has made a liar out of me again. It won't upload the two Karen Kuykendall cards I wanted to share to end this post. So I'll have to set those aside for a final post about this deck, a Part IV. Argh!
At any rate, I hope the journey through this unique deck is fun. For all the misery I'm having with uploading images, it's wonderful exploring the artwork in this Tarot again.
Please see the top of the sidebar for my background with the Tarot and a recommendation to beginners.
‘til next time, keep enjoying the amazing unviverse of The Tarot,
[aka: Patricia Kelly]
