The Rosetta Tarot is a Thoth based indie tarot, first published in a limited edition in 2011, and now back in a new larger 5x3.25" size, with updated borders that now have the attribution symbols and a gorgeous new glowing color! The beautiful rose-cross card backs are now printed with metallic ink that has a subtle sheen.
The Rosetta Tarot was M.M. Meleen's first tarot creation, originally published in 2011, and winning "Best Tarot Deck of 2011" by vote of the Aeclectic Tarot audience. It's a Thoth based esoteric tarot deck, one of very few that is both faithful to the Thoth tradition yet with original and new art.
The Rosetta Tarot is unique in that each suit was created with a different art media that best expressed the qualities of the element, tied together with the media of the Majors. The Major Arcana were painted in acrylic, the most versatile medium with all the flexibility of the Major Arcana meanings. The Wands suit was done in colored pencils (little wooden wands!) and acrylic. The Cups were done in watercolors and liquid inks, plus acrylic. The Swords suit was done in dry point etching, etched into plastic and metal plates with a sword-like stylus, then run through an ink press. The resulting black and white prints were painted in acrylic. The Disks suit was done in oil paints - pigments made from earthly elements - and acrylic.
If you know the Thoth deck, or want to learn more, this is the perfect user friendly introduction and a sweet little deck all on it's own. While some of the cards will remind you of their Thothy counterparts, the majority go their own way completely yet will open up new meanings for the Thoth user.
The deck comes with a customizable significator card for YOU to customize with your name, plus a card signed by the artist. Note we cannot customize the significator card that comes with the deck, as it is shrink wrapped with the cards.
You can optionally add an additional blank significator card, or for a limited time, ask the artist to personalize it with your first name written phonetically in hieroglyphs. First name only, based on the shipping name. Or you may instruct us in the checkout comment field, but only ONE name or ONE word can be added. The significator has the scribe goddess Seshet, writing upon a gold foiled cartouche where the name goes.
Cards come in an indigo blue box with a gold Egyptian ankh symbol, lined with dark blue satin ribbon. Every edition of this deck has sold out. If you like small edition hand crafted esoteric tarot, don't miss the Rosetta!
