This elegant deck is unique in the simplicity of its linework combined with the richness of its symbolism and iconography. Author and artist Nigel Jackson developed the Rose Tarot based on his unparalleled expertise in the Hermeticists of the 17th century, the Illuminist Freemasons of the 18th century, and the romantic esotericists of the 19th century. Well-suited for oracular readings, cartomancy, and meditation, this powerful deck is patterned after the Marseille Tarot and will be a welcome addition to any collection.
Boxed kit (5½ x 8) includes a 78-card deck (2¾ x 4½) and a full-color guidebook.
Nigel Jackson lives in Manchester, England, and is an internationally renowned artist and illustrator specializing in the symbolism of Western Esoteric Tradition. He is deeply immersed in the traditional Tarot of 15th century Italy, the magical teachings of medieval-renaissance astrological magicians such as Ficino, Agrippa and Bruno and in bringing to life the talismanic images inherited from ancient sources of arcane lore such as the Arabian grimoire The Picatrix. He has worked intensively in researching the magical system of the 28 Mansions of the Moon. Nigel has been involved for the last quarter of a century in pursuing the inner wisdom of the hermetic mysteries and in expressing the symbolic 'language of the gods' through his visual art which he views as a living 'alchemy of the imagination'.
