In the World Spirit Tarot, people of many colors and cultures enliven the cards. This deck, illustrated by Lauren O'Leary, with accompanying book by Jessica Sczuka Godino, was published in June last year by Llewellyn.

In the World Spirit Tarot, people of many colors and cultures enliven the cards. Each tarot card has potent symbols that help enrich its meaning. Many are traditional, hearkening to earlier versions of the cards. With the number of decks being published these days, it takes something special to rise above the noise and attract my attention. This one did it; it is simply one of the most evocative and useful tarot decks to appear in recent years.

by Jessica Sczuka Godino (Author), Lauren O'Leary (Author). The World Spirit Tarot has to be one of the most invocative and beautiful decks I have seen. The artwork is very primitive, and multicultural. You will see hints of Cuban Santeria, Haitian Voudun, Indian Hindu, Native American Shamanism, and it goes on and on.

Lauren O'Leary, Jessica Sczuka Godino. In this unique tarot, you will find skinny guys and people of colour, heavy women and quirky kids from all times and places - the real people who make our lives lively and bright. The cards look like woodcuts that have been painted with vibrant, rich colours. They are actually hand-coloured linoleum block prints featuring highly stylised artwork with an exotic, otherworldly quality that defies imitation. The approach of the imagery and text is practical rather than academic.

The Tarot truly comes alive in the 78 cards of the World Spirit Tarot. You'll find people of every size and color in this vibrant modern version of the traditional Tarot. Nonhierarchical and gender inclusive, the images reflect the authentic beauty of people who embody the qualities of their cards, from desperation and power to intimacy and joy. The cards look like woodcuts, but they are actually hand-colored linoleum block prints featuring uniquely stylized artwork with an otherworldly quality that defies imitation. Instead of "reversed" and "upright" meanings, the accompanying book offers new insights by describing the "gift" and "shadow" of each card, an approach that fosters the understanding of a continuum of meaning rather than of polar opposites. In the following excerpt, World Spirit Tarot creators Jessica Godino and Lauren O'Leary describe the deck's unique synthesis of old and new symbols: "In the World Spirit Tarot, Lauren has drawn from Pamela Smith's designs as well as from those of another Golden Dawn artist, Frieda Harris, who worked for Aleister Crowley on the Thoth Tarot. She has also added new symbols and images and, in some cases, created an entirely new scenario, to make a deck that is more globally oriented and suited to our times. In the World Spirit Tarot, people of many colors and cultures enliven the cards. Tarot, as we see it, is a mirror for self-reflection, a way to stop and pay attention to what the world has to say to you. We wrote this book for people who want to use the tarot as a tool for helping to make conscious choices. It is meant to be practical and designed to give immediate insight into the situation at hand."

This deck, illustrated by Lauren O'Leary, with accompanying book by Jessica Sczuka Godino, was published in June last year by Llewellyn. With the number of decks being published these days, it takes something special to rise above the noise and attract my attention. This one did it; it is simply one of the most evocative and useful tarot decks to appear in recent years.
O'Leary's medium is block printing, with the light areas of the prints subsequently colored in rich hues. The result is bold and dramatic, almost overloading the senses. The block printing moves far enough away from realism to give the deck an archetypal quality without compromising earthiness and character.
When I get a new deck, I always run through it quickly to check out how the artist's interpretations of the different cards strike me. Mostly, interpretations seem good but unoriginal. Sometimes there are real duds. Other times there are "zings"-visions that leap out and tell the meaning of the card in a new and exciting way. This deck has no duds and lots of zings, from the incredible Tower card drawn from the perspective of one of the falling figures (How many centuries have we waited for a Tower card that didn't make it look like somebody else's problem?) to the gorgeously sensual Strength card, with a slender, nude African woman cradled in the body of the lion, to the hauntingly wise, comfortable, and self-confident Sybil (queen) of Swords on her mountaintop.
The imagery is also wonderfully multicultural, but unlike many decks that attempt this, there is little sense of clashing worlds-the block printing technique gives the whole deck a totally unified look and feel; we are drawn into some kind of alternate reality where people of all races and cultures live in interconnection, sharing a single vivid spiritual landscape.
The real magic of this deck is that for all its beauty and originality, it is immediately readable. The themes of the cards will be instantly familiar to anyone who has used a deck drawn from Waite-Smith images and images (which most are). Even if you are new to tarot, it's hard not to get clear messages from these images. The book is nicely done, but almost superfluous. I used this deck, straight out of the box, to give free readings at Pagan Pride Day last year, and it rocks.

I am new to Tarot but have met the artist for this set and decided to give it a shot. The woodblock pictures are simple, yet beautiful and the deck is very easy to use for someone completely new. The book that accompanies the deck is informative and has been really wonderful in helping me gain a better understanding of the tarot and of how to use this particular deck. I am falling in love with Tarot and it is all thanks to this excellent deck!

The cards are of good quality and the artwork is beautiful. I was shopping for a good quality deck, hoping for it to last the rest of my life. I feel confidant that I've made the right choice.

Bought these as a gift for my wife and she loves them. They were her first tarot set and she was very excited to get them. The pictures are wonderful.

The World Spirit is a truly beautiful deck and one that gives the clearest readings. Here's Why:

The Art - really stands out from other decks. The block print style makes for beautiful deep black lines and jewel-like colors. The colors are bright and vibrant but without being hard on the eyes. With some bright decks when you lay out more than three cards everything seems to swim and it's hard to make anything out. This deck has a nice balance and I haven't had trouble in this arena.

The Diversity - This is the mother of all diverse decks. Some diverse decks have an African suit and a Japanese suit etc, or feature the occasional ethnic person. Here you have every flavor of person sprinkled evenly throughout the deck. Also, where some decks make the same outline for every person and just use different crayons to color them in this one really this one makes everyone look like members of their race. Also there are a number of cards that feature folks of different races playing, very rare.

The Courts: Courts are Seer, Seeker, Sibyl, Sage, follows the system where the court levels are different ways of experiencing the suit's element. The whole deck is element heavy and will work well for people who relate to the cards in this way. Will be nigh impossible for those who have a wands/air, swords/fire outlook.

This deck is one of the most unusual I have worked with. Although the images are rooted in the Rider Waite deck, as are so many, the artwork is based on lino cuts, the resulting prints being later hand coloured, and this makes the bold yet subtle cards powerful and extraordinarily effective in use. The Hermit and The High Priestess are particularly evocative. Furthermore, this is a multi cultural deck with figures from a number of ethnic backgrounds and spiritual persuasions; one might expect this fact to make the cards less focused, but the opposite is the case, and this is in fact a very intuitive and reliable set to use. I'm not a fan of the booklets which accompany tarot decks, as they are often diffuse or else offer dire interpretations: however, the little book provided with this deck is easy to understand, offering wise and insightful meanings along with background information about the creators of the deck and the process employed to produce the images. All in all this is a delightful kit with cards which speak on a deep and intuitive level. I find them extremely easy to work with as well as being beautiful.
