Rohrig Tarot

[Hanged Man] [Ten of Cups] German artist Carl-W. Rohrig created the Rohrig Tarot using the air-brush technique. This deck is a collection of magical-mystical images with many subtle, symbolic elements. Bluestar, the English language publisher, says that Rohrig's "transcendent vision enhances the power of this centuries-old divination tool and brings it to the modern age." The deck follows the model of the Thoth Tarot deck. The court cards are the Knight, Queen, Prince and Princess, and the numbered minor arcana cards each have a keyword meaning printed across the top of the card. The cards are larger than normal, but of high quality. There is a separate companion book for this deck called The Rohrig Tarot Book.
