The Slow Tarot

Shipping & Returns

A richly designed tarot deck featuring stunning reproductions of seventy-eight original oil paintings by San Francisco Bay Area artist Lacey Bryant. The Slow Tarot is the result of a personal art project spanning over six years as the artist dedicated herself to creating an original work of art for every card in the deck. Now in the third printing, the deck now includes the original version of 'The World' card featured on the box design and back by popular demand.

Deck includes:

  • 78 full-color tarot cards
  • Premium linen cardstock
  • 24-page guidebook
  • Published by Modern Eden

1,350% funded on Kickstarter!

The Slow Tarot deck features 78 full-color tarot cards printed on 310gsm linen paper. The cards have a slight texture which makes them both tactile, durable, and easy to shuffle. Included in each order is a dedicated guidebook produced by the artist specifically for this deck.  The deck ships in a full-color 2 piece box, which is adorned with an alternate version of 'The World'. Our goal with this project was to create a high-quality tarot deck that can be enjoyed for years to come. As each card features a unique painting, you will essentially own 78 mini prints of the artwork. The deck is suitable for both beginners, enthusiasts, and the advanced tarot reader, and also makes a great gift for those interested in art.

Each suit in the deck is identified by a color, and the elements of fire, water, air, and earth are reflected in the colors chosen for the borders. The Aces have also received special treatment, and have been designed completely borderless. The back of every card is identical, and features a beautiful line drawing designed by Lacey.

About the Project

Lacey Bryant is represented by Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco, and has partnered with us on this project. Over the years, we have worked together on numerous shows and projects over her career. This particular series, which began in 2013, shortly after her first solo exhibition at the gallery, has grown in scope and ambition in the ensuing years. During the long time these paintings were being produced, the artist created works for 4 major solo exhibitions and more than 15 group exhibitions at Modern Eden, along with a residency in 2016 at Chalk Hill. Throughout, she always found time to return to the tarot. There are reflections of her life and her community in every card, and while the process has been slow, it has been full of intention.

In late 2018, we began to talk with her about how best to showcase the work, and the idea to put on an exhibition at the gallery and to crowdfund a deck was born. Lacey's goal of the project has always been to create a deck of tarot cards featuring the artwork, and with the production and design resources provided by the gallery and successful funding by backers we were thrilled to to make this dream a reality. In just 24 days on Kickstarter the project was overwhelmingly funded, reaching 1,350% over goal.

    No package. Poor service

    I can't enjoy the deck as I haven't got it! The track number is traced only on the seller's territory though the shipment is fee-paying! My messages are ignored by the seller! More than 5 messages were e-mailed and no answer!

    Slow Tarot Review

    I've been collecting and using tarot and oracle decks since 2004, and I've become a little more discerning when buying them now. Many decks have lovely images but are hard to read and make sense of, especially in daily life. The Slow Tarot has wonderful images, but they also are easy to read intuitively or from a standard tarot framework. I especially liked the inclusion of what the sets of numbers meant (aces, twos, etc.) in the lwb. I've been using and enjoying them for my daily draws on my blog this week:

    Beautiful Tarot Deck

    Absolutely thrilled with everything about this deck, from the art (which is what initially drew me to it), to the quality of the card stock, to the varied edging by suit or for majors, right down to the box itself. The accompanying booklet is insightful as well. Hats off to the creators, because you’ve crafted an experience that lends to readings that are filled with emotional depth and meaning.
