Welcome to the undergrowth, where the true correspondences between tarot and plant archetypes can be explored. The La Flora deck and guide book are in effect an encyclopedia, inspired by scientific drawings from ancient masterpieces and combined with a deep understanding of tarot symbolism and meaning - this deck is a real collectors' item.

The antique botanical masterpieces were beautifully reproduced by creator Iara Cortes using a drawing technique called stippling. In its purest form, a stippled image is composed exclusively of dots. One must look at it at a precise distance to genuinely appreciate its richness. As such, stippling became the common thread weaving together all the art in La Flora Tarot.
The guide book, which is also a stand-alone piece of work, is a 212-page soft cover featuring black and white and colour art and illustrations as well as full descriptions of the plants, their history and mythology and how they relate to the meanings of the individual tarot cards.
The cards themselves are linen finished, slightly larger than average tarot cards and come in a high-quality, decorated tuck box.
The creator was keen that these two items be presented as a collection and therefore they are only available to be sold together. There are limited copies available.
