"…this is not the best deck for "quickie" readings. Instead, make a pot of tea, hunker down for the evening and let yourself get lost in this deck, for within it is a whole world just waiting to be explored." —Daily Tarot Girl

"The innovation in this deck is a delight. The creators dig deeply into the possibilities of a Steampunk deck and deliver a vision that is functional as well as thoughtful. The deck provides a unique and passionate representation of its theme. If you are a fan of Steampunk, this Tarot may truly delight you." —Aeclectic Tarot

"Overall, this is an interesting tarot, offering some insights that are both traditional and novel in their take on how we may find wisdom in the technology we surround ourselves with. "—Taroflexions

An diesem Deck fiel mir beim Auspacken zu allererst die wirklich schöne und stabile Schachtel auf. Ich hatte mich beim Kauf nur leider eher an diesem Motiv orientiert und war dann etwas enttäuscht, dass es auf keiner Karte auftaucht. Insgesamt sind die Kartenmotive relativ cyberlastig und eher wenig viktorianisch, aber das sieht man schon ganz gut in der Amazon-Vorschau. Wenn man einen Steampunktarot auf halbem Weg zum Cyberpunktarot sucht, finde ich, ist man mit diesem Deck ganz gut beraten. Unbedingt erwähnt werden sollte wohl, dass nicht wenige Kartennamen geändert wurden (sieht man auch schon beim "Blick ins Buch"), "Emperor" und "Empress" scheinen als einzige der Großen Arkana ihre üblichen Namen zu tragen, selbst die Farben und die Hofkarten wurden geändert (was ja der Qualität der Karten keinen Abbruch tut, aber es ist halt umständlich). Kelche sind Uboote, Schwerter sind Luftschiffe, Stäbe sind Motoren und Pentakel wurden zu Leviathanim (seltsam, für mich waren Leviathane immer Seeungeheuer, aber lassen wird das...). Die Karten scheinen mit einer Art Pulver beschichtet zu sein, jedenfalls fühlen sich meine Finger jedes Mal staubig an, nachdem ich das Deck in der Hand hatte, aber das sollte ja irgendwann verschwunden sein. Der Preis war für ein Tarotset völlig in Ordnung und das Begleitbuch ist nicht gerade wahnsinnig dick, aber trotzdem okay. Es gibt darin Auflistungen, welche Karte aus diesem Tarot welcher traditionellen Karte entspricht.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

Astonishing! 9. August 2013
Von The Other Me - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The Matthew's Arthurian Tarot has always been one of my favorites.

But they have definitely surpassed themselves with this one.

The imagery is astonishing. They certainly collaborated with the perfect illustrating artist for this project!

Their renaming of the cards and suits is excellent - it draws me more deeply into this strange & wonderful universe.

I think they really hit their pinnacle with the book as well. I love that they include individual, unique spreads for each of the Major Arcana.

Each card is treated with reverence for that particular archetypal concept, but there's not the overwhelm of information too often filling-up books that accompany Tarot decks. This allows the reader to develop a more personal relationship with each card.

The Mathews really let loose their Creative Imaginations. Every page of the book is interesting, informative, often humorous and always "in character."

It is as wonderfully magikcal as the cards themselves.

Lastly... the various quotes they've chosen to introduce the suits are simply amazing.

Here's what my eyes rested on when I first opened the book randomly to the introduction of the League of Submersibles (Cups):

"How by a certain time machine many may stay sometime under water. And how and where for I do not describe my method of remaining under water ... I do not publish nor divulge these, by reason of the evil nature of men, who would use them for assassinations at the bottom of the sea by destroying ships, and sinking them together with the men in them. Never the less I will impart others, which are not dangerous because the mouth of the tube through which you breathe is above the water, supported on air sacks or cork." ~ Leonardo da Vinci's Notenooks

Suprisingly Insightful 20. Oktober 2013
Von W. Skovo - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I picked this deck up because I like Steampunk and it delighted me that someone had done Tarot in the imagery of that style. But I expected it to be kind of gimmicky. In fact I was able to understand some Tarot concepts more clearly than I ever had with other decks I have explored(Connolly, Robinwood, & Druid). The book is short but organizes the information so clearly. Looking at the list of Major Arcana in order, as provided in the book, I was able to recognize an evolutionary progression including a reincarnation event and higher level consciousness development that the Major Arcana represents. I also began to grok how this developmental picture has similarities to other mystic traditions such as the Christian Kabbalah(See Gnosis of the Cosmic Christ by Tau Malachi). In getting to know my deck I sorted through and put the minor arcana into suits and the Major Arcana in order numerically and considered the symbols of each & how they portrayed their archetype. Im still in this process but wanted to rave about the deck while my discoveries were new.
More personally, I was drawn to two cards; the Brazen Head (Judgement) and the Lady of Airships (Queen of Swords). In reading the blurbs on these two cards I saw aspects of myself in validating ways that had never come to me in considering their counterpart cards in other decks nor have I been drawn to these cards in other decks. It seems that this deck makes the ideas behind the cards more accessible to current times even though the setting is fantasy on the surface.

Complex and Insightful 12. März 2013
Von Janet Boyer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
"And since, above all else, Steampunk is about adventure--wherever, whenever and whoever it features--it seemed high time that there should be a way of looking into and through the strange distorting glass of this new-old world, and to explore its vitality and wonder, and its wisdom. Just as we may turn to the tarot to aid us in navigating the shoals of uncertainty which surround us, so, in the alternative world of the Steampunk Imperium, it opens vistas that help us to see things in a new way." - From the Steampunk Tarot companion book by John and Caitlin Matthews

From hulking dirigibles to clockwork devices, intricate gears to steam-powered machines, the alternate world of Steampunk blends historical accoutrements with futuristic visions. A realm that evolved alongside our own but with various divergences, Steampunk embodies Victorian dress and manners with Edwardian industrial advancement. Add some clean fuel derived from amber (Pullman's "anbaric powder"), metaphysical experimentation, conscious automatons and thirst for adventure, and you're witnessing the essence of Steampunk.

In the scholarly, playful hands of John and Caitlin Matthews, Steampunk--sometimes derided as "goth dressed in sepia"--finds a fresh, bold presentation when melded with Tarot structure and philosophy...a combination resulting in a complex, intelligent oracular system and set of cards.

In the Steampunk Tarot, all but three of the Major Arcana--known as the Gods of the Machine in this deck--are renamed, as are the four Minor Arcana suits (Leagues) and Court Cards (Ligates).

The Four Leagues are Leviathans (earth), Submersibles (water), Airships (air) and Engines (fire). The Four Ligates that govern the Leagues are Messengers (Pages), Navigators (Knights), Ladies (Queens) and Captains (Kings). In the 160-page companion book, the Matthewses also provide elaborate subsystems where four Regulators (Gods of the Machine) correspond to each League, as well as eleven complementary opposites and seven initiations of the Apprentice (seven triads).

I did say the Steampunk Tarot was complex, right?

However, even if you decided to forgo understanding or (trying) to apply the convoluted (but fascinating) methods of the Matthewses, the cards themselves still prove a bit inscrutable, owing to detailed imagery of fantastical equipment, intricate technology and unrecognizable paraphernalia. Thus, those who glean scads of intuitive information by illustrations alone may find the illustrations by Wil Kinghan challenging to interpret.

However, for those intrigued by the idea of Steampunk sensibilities and hierarchical structures superimposed upon Tarot archetypes, the Steampunk Tarot vastly rewards the patient, the curious and the bright. The companion book is a thinking person's playground and the metaphysician's delight. Rather than simple keywords for each card, the Matthewses give seekers a holistic, perceptive overview, as well as personal lifestyle, interaction and impact (both upright and reversed). A "Steampunk Wisdom" phrase also accompanies each card.

The authors also provide a spread for each of the Gods of the Machine (Major Arcana). Most any Tarot author can slap together a spread, but to craft twelve substantive layouts (corresponding to the 22 Majors) that each provide an insightful, meaningful blueprint for a seeker is extraordinary and commendable.

I've been using the Steampunk Tarot for the last week with amazing results. Not only have my readings been incredibly accurate and insightful, but also empowering. When I asked a question and drew Triumph (Trump 7, correlating with The Chariot), I was so encouraged by what the Matthewses wrote about this card that I decided to go a step further and try out their 4-card Triumphal Procession Spread.

I was so blown away by the psychological depth and precision of this spread that I've placed the four cards I drew in a prominent position on my desk to remind me of the journey I'm on, what keeps me on the road, the obstacles I need to avoid and my final (project) destination.

It's obvious that much care and thought when into both the imagery and companion book, so rousing kudos to the publisher (Tuttle), authors (John and Caitlin Matthews) and illustrator (Wil Kinghan) on this superb addition to Tarot literature and thought. My Steampunk Tarot stands ready, awaiting yet another intronautic journey where visions become reality and otherworldly guidance manifests for my soul's evolutionary enjoyment.

Humans, Machines, and the Other Realms 2. April 2013
Von Anna from InannaWorks - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Combining the elegantly sci-fi world of Steampunk with the meta-reality of traditional tarot, "The Steampunk Tarot" opens the door to a new realm of visually-rich archetypes arising from the ancient wisdom.

Using the traditional tarot format as a foundation, "The Steampunk Tarot" becomes a magical place, enlivened by men, gods, and machines. Wil Kinghan's illustrations tell a story in their own right. Bold ... beguiling ... sultry ... his characters are placed in environments which are dense with symbolism and rendered in lush detail. Sometimes engaging the viewer, sometimes seemingly oblivious to our presence, they go about the business of their mechanistic world with dedication and intensity. The Matthews' companion book begins with an overview of the Steampunk movement and then gives us a tour of this churning, Howard-Hughes-style fantasyland. Highly creative and carefully constructed, "The Steampunk Tarot" is a visual and intellectual treat!

I'm an artist and appreciate the time and effort that went into each of these cards, but I am also a writer and love to collect various sets to help inspire me to weave new stories. This wonderfully creative deck will more than meet my steampunk needs. Every card brings something new to the table. Instead of duplications, this deck gives unique details for every card, pulling your eyes into each scene. So top hats and goggles off to John and Caitlin Matthews as well as to the illustrator Wil Kinghan! Truly this is the Steampunk Tarot Set I've been waiting patiently for.
