The Book of Shadows Tarot, Vol. 1: As Above

Designer(s), Artist(s): Grzegorz Krysinski, Simone Gabrielli, Barbara Moore
Country of Publication: Italy
Number of Cards: 78
Publication Year: 2012
Publication Status: In Print

Description:
The first volume of a two-deck set, The Book of Shadows Tarot: As Above takes an ethereally spiritual approach to tarot's usual symbolism. Both decks cater to a Wiccan perspective; in Volume 1, however, the card titles diverge from the norm (although the general thrust of the symbolism remains true to contemporary interpretations). For example, the Magician Card is renamed "The Elements", while The Star is called "Samhain". The minor arcana suits are named after their associated elements (Fire, Water, Air, Earth), rather than the traditional symbolic names (Wands, Cups, Swords, Pentacles). Wiccan deities, rituals, holidays, and tools are heavily incorporated into the imagery of each card. In contrast, the second volume draws on symbols taken from day-to-day life.

The Book of Shadows Tarot, Vol. 2: So Below

Designer(s), Artist(s): Barbara Moore, Sabrina Ariganello, Alessia Pastorello
Country of Publication: Italy
Number of Cards: 78
Publication Year: 2013
Publication Status: In Print

Description:
The second volume of a twin, Wiccan-inspired pair of tarots, the Book of Shadows: So Below deck takes a more familiar approach to tarot symbolism than its Volume 1 counterpart. Here, the card names correspond with the traditional titles, and the minor arcana suits are not replaced, as they are in Vol. 1, with their elemental attributions. The scenes depicted are more grounded in everyday life, as opposed to the deity/ritual/spiritual figures that dominate the first volume. Together, the two decks provide an interesting spectrum that spans from the spiritually sublime to the comfortably mundane.
