Behold! A draft of what a hypothetical Tarot deck of my world would actually look like. Starting with, well, the World: Carathoukiea! I feel like it needs more…decoration, or some border design, but I can’t think of what that would look like. I’d want it to be consistent to all cards.

The last part of the The Adventures of the Trinity and the One Tarot Major Arcana matching series. The final stretch of the Major Arcana are matched with characters and concepts from the series. Exciting stuff!
