Sasuraibito Tarot Deck
The Japanese word: "sasuraibito" most closely translates to "wanderer." It's an old-fashioned literary term falling out of use meant to describe a person ever-seeking, searching for a place of healing and refuge. Designed to aid the curious wanderer, and accompany you on your adventures to come, this 78 card deck is inspired loosely by the Rider-Waite Smith tarot deck, contemporary living in the Western world, and Japanese and Buddhist concepts and ideals.
Cards measure 2.75''×4.75'' (70mm×120mm) on 330gsm (super smooth) glossy card stock, and are encased in a beautiful, sturdy lidded box featuring the card back design.
Also included is a 63-page guidebook, with brief notes on the meanings and symbolism of my cards. While some cards follow fairly closely to the Rider-Waite Smith version (Strength, The World), others diverge strongly from tradition (Death, Judgment).
Common themes in the deck are the key points in the cycle of life, embracing endings and keeping the fool's open mind.
