The cards in the Stone Tarot Deck are reproduced from original oil paintings by artist Alison Stone.  Ms. Stone has spent a decade producing the paintings, which represent her interpretation of the divination deck, using color to evoke the spiritual and emotional meanings of the cards.  Using her background as a poet, artist, healer and Wiccan Priestess, she combines art and mysticism to produce a deck which reflects the integration and synthesis of the two.

 

The deck consists of seventy-nine cards: the 22 Major Arcana, the 56 Minor Arcana divided into four suits, and a blank card for those who incorporate that into their readings.  Each suit has four face cards, while the ace through ten are numbered representations of each suit (pips). The reproductions are of high quality, maintaining the artistic integrity of the original paintings.  Included is a one-sheet discussion of tarot, card interpretations, and a sample spread. The deck comes shrink-wrapped in a cardboard box with a plastic cover. The cards are 3 and 1/4 inches by 5 inches, with an original abstract as the common back.

 

The deck follows the classical tarot naming and numbering tradition with one minor variation; it is gender balanced. For two of the Minor Arcana suits, the Page is a male and the rider on the horse is a female (Amazon).  For the other two suits, the Page is a female and the rider is a male (Knight).

Announcing the Publication of Alison Stone’s poetry book of tarot poems

 

NYQ is proud to announce the publication of Ordinary Magic, a new collection of poetry by Alison Stone. The poems in this collection make up a series in the voices of the tarot. The78 poems in this collection range from the archetypal (The Fool, The Magician, etc.) to the everyday situations of love, work, ideas, and conflicts that make up our lives. Mythical figures from past and present appear—Prometheus and Persephone represent court cards, as do Lou Reed and Steve Jobs. By turns witty and heartbreaking, this book goes down easily enough to be devoured in one sitting yet reveals greater depths with each subsequent reading. Stone’s accessible lyrics move and entertain us with the struggles and joys of what it means to be human.
