The Stone Tarot

 

 

 

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 second poetry book – a tarot companion book

 

Parallel Press is pleased to announce the publication of From the Fool to the World, a new collection of poetry by Alison Stone (Parallel Press, 2012).  The poems in this collection make up a series in the voices of the Major Arcana of the tarot. Stone’s poetry extends and complements her own work as a visual artist in creating the Stone Tarot. The poems are rich with visual language and are filled with stories of light, journeys, and transformation: If you won’t dance, / then who’s the fool? / Inside my cloth bag – apple, table, stallion, sky. / Come! The rich / cliff tempts like wine.
