The Langustl Tarot deck

Written by  on November 22, 2015 

The Langustl Tarot has 78 bold, high-contrast acrylic paintings of the Tarot energies, simplified and lively expressions of form and colour. This striking deck is illustrated using the visual language of fairy tales and children’s storybooks, bringing a similar feel to the cards.
It’s always special to follow a deck’s progress, beginning with digital card images online and progressively seeing more and more card images as they are completed, then coming to fruition as a printed and published deck of cards. Some are picked up by a major publisher and altered to suit their specifications, and others are brought to life by the artist on their own terms.
The Langustl Tarot is one of the latter. It is unlike many self-published decks, in that it isn’t handmade or homemade – these cards have been professionally printed, cut and boxed. Self-publishing also allowed artist Stephan Lange to have the cards printed in a much larger size than may have been otherwise possible – 8cm by 15cm – and the art is shown off to best effect.
