Description

The Incidental Tarot
By Holly DeFount


The Incidental Tarot came about organically and of its own free will through the process of another creative project I undertook in 2011. I gave myself an enormous creative challenge that year: make one piece of original art every day. Yes, you read me right. Every. Day.

I chose the Artist Trading Card format (ACEO: Artist Cards, Editions and Originals), since it seemed to be a manageable size to produce on a daily basis. Maybe it was that handy card-sized format, or maybe it was my lifelong love of Tarot…but it became clear very early in the ACEO Challenge that a Tarot deck was inevitable.

Thus, the Incidental Tarot was born.

There is no arcane, complicated subtext to the imagery in this deck. I have seen, held and studied countless different artistic interpretations of the Tarot over 25 years. When I realized the work I was doing was evolving into an oeuvre de Tarot, I allowed my creative consciousness to distill down all those profound, complex layers of esoteric meaning into the tapestry of archetypal images that make up the Incidental Tarot. They are simple in composition, but rich in feeling; I hope you enjoy working with them as much as I do.

The Incidental Tarot is a self-published original art Tarot deck, full of gorgeous, esoteric images. Though based upon traditional wisdom, this deck reinterprets some key elements of Tarot imagery, using Arrows for the suit of Wands, Roses for the suit of Cups, Quills for the suit of Swords and Oaks for the suit of Pentacles. Also, several of the Major Arcana cards have been reinterpreted, such as "Gryphon" in place of Strength, and "Phoenix" in place of the Tower. The artwork of the Incidental Tarot has been widely praised and has attracted an enthusiastic audience of Tarot-philes in the year since it was first conceived and its publishing in February 2012.
