Designed by Christopher & Morgana Abbey, the Wonderland Tarot contains characters & scenes from Alice in Wonderland ingeniously mapped to the mostly Rider-Waite-Smith traditional iconography. This is a new 2017 printing in a slightly smaller format packaged in a tin. The complete 78 card deck first published by U. S. Games in 1989 has whimsical, brightly colored art, based on Sir John Tenniel's original illustrations for 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' & 'Through the Looking Glass.'
The Major Arcana all use traditional titles, but have 'Alice' character illustrations; Mad Hatter, Cheshire Cat, Tweedledee & Tweedledum, Humpty Dumpty, Queen of Hearts, Jabberwock, White Rabbit & many more. Minor Arcana suits have been renamed: Oysters (Pentacles), Flamingos (Swords), Hats (Cups), Peppermills (Staves). They are fully illustrated, numbered on the upper left & bottom right borders like playing cards, with titles (such as the “Five of Spades”) noted in the borders.
The 55 page booklet has upright & reversed divinatory meanings for all cards. Major Arcana also receive a scene or character description. 10-card spread included. Packaged in a 2-part lidded tin box.
