Stolen Child Tarot – a Major Arcana Deck

September 30th, 2011 § 0 comments

Just the other day I posted about William Butler Yeats, and here he shows up again, this time inspiring Monica Knighton to create the Stolen Child Tarot.

Knighton is the creator of the Tarot of the Dead and has been illustrating The Healing Tarot, due to be released by Schiffer Publishing in 2013.

But it’s the Stolen Child Tarot she’s working on now. Named for and inspired by one of her favourite Yeats poems, The Stolen Child, this deck is somewhat non-traditional.

Instead of man-made objects, she’ll be using items found in nature as her symbols. Antlers have become crowns and animal skins are robes.

And replacing all adults in the deck will be changeling children, fairy-like creatures that have embraced different parts of the natural world.

Knighton is looking for help in publishing a limited majors only edition of the deck through Kickstarter. She’s hoping a full 78-card version will be next.

If you’re interested in helping her out, visit her page. You can get yourself a copy of the deck, and even have your own personal totem included in its imagery.
