Harmonious Tarot

Written by  on December 15, 2015 

The Harmonious Tarot is pretty, light and flowery, like sitting in a rose garden on a sunny spring afternoon. The Tarot art, mostly by Victorian artist Walter Crane (with some additions by Fitzpatrick) is romantic, heavily floral, and quite easily readable.
The artwork is mostly Crane’s, with some modifications by Ernest Fitzpatrick to better fit it to a Tarot structure. The cards have a very detailed, floral, languid appearance; a combination of Victorian England, cottage flower garden, and various historical eras. The costumes follow suit and randomly shift between twentieth-century dresses, hats, and suits; medieval fantasy boots and hose; Grecian robes; Native American feathers; or, most commonly, flower costumes and petal head-dresses. This floral theme is very pronounced – daisies decorate cows, a giant goose has leaves for feet in the Nine of Chalices, and a matron in the Nine of Wands holds a long-stemmed rose as a staff, to mention a few examples.
