Another fabulous book by Ellen Million & friends (see my Brain Celebration review here), Tarot of the Water explores the mystical characters and scenes from the world famous fortune-telling cards. I read the Tarot occasionally myself, so I was really excited to see these artistic renderings of the four suits and their pip cards.
The book explores both the Major and Minor Arcana, with face cards such as Temperance and Strength, and number cards like the Ten of Pentacles. There are 20 different designs in total, each representing a card from the occult deck. As you may know, Tarot decks often have different themes. These illustrations were drawn to accompany the Nautical Tarot set by 78Tarot, so each one has a distinctly watery theme.
The cards included in this book are: The Emperor, Justice, Temperance, The Star, Strength, 4 of Wands, Queen of Wands, King of Wands, Page of Cups, 10 of Cups, Nine of Cups, Ace of Cups, 8 of Swords, 10 of Swords, King of Swords, Knight of Swords, Ace of Pentacles, 10 of Pentacles, Knight of Pentacles, and King of Pentacles.
The book has been produced in exactly the same format with the same materials as Ellen's other colouring books- slightly shiny, smooth paper that is thin but one-sided.
Here's my finished picture of The Emperor, done with Spectrum Noir pens.
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. You can find it over on Etsy.
