The Zombie Tarot Combines the Classic Deck with Undead Nastiness
When one thinks of the zombies associated with the tarot universe, normally the mindless voodoo zombie image is conjured. Stacey Graham and Paul Kepple are looking to change all that, combining the tarot deck with the undead horde to create The Zombie Tarot.
In what has to be one of the coolest, most unique tarot decks you can find, Graham and Kepple have taken all the things you love about the undead - the brain craving, the severed body parts, the inevitable feeling of impending doom and the guns (oh, so many guns) - and packaged it into a classic tarot deck... with '50s-style artwork. This thing is nothing if not original and so well done. The deck will be available for purchase on June 5the, but you can get a closer look at what is included with the package at QuirkBooks.com or pre-order the deck via the EvilShop link below. If tarot is your thing, we can pretty much guarantee you've never seen a deck like this!
In fact, just to do proper research, I volunteered to have my cards read by author Stacey Graham, and I'll be damned if she didn't do a pretty spot-on reading for me. Having over 10 years of experience in reading cards, Graham certainly knows what she's talking about. "A little background on the tarot in case this is your first time," Graham said. "The deck is split into two sections: 22 cards in the Major Arcana, which is like going to a circus and an annoying clown gets in your face until you pay attention to him and give him a dollar to go away, and the Minor Arcana, where the rest of the cards are like the dog act: each one plays upon the other dogs to give you a complete show. My philosophy about tarot is that it gives you a picture of the path you’re traveling, but at any time you can take a left at the donut shop or stop and sit in a tree or turn around for a do-over. You control your destiny – the cards are just there to show you what’s coming up if you follow that straight path and sometimes what’s around the bend."
