The imagery of the classic Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot is based on universal archetypes, symbols we can all identify with from real life. But with such richly decorated art, how can the reader begin to unpick the meaning when many symbols appear at once within one card? If you fancy a more in-depth look at the tarot, or you are just beginning to read the tarot, why not start with taking it apart, and seeing what its made of? 

"Every act of creation is first an act of destruction", goes the Pablo Picasso quote in the Tarot Disassembled guidebook. This beautiful primary-coloured deck breaks down each card to its core components, and the guidebook discusses and examines the correlations between astrology, psychology and esoteric symbolism.

Creator Jennifer Cooper Steidley comments: "One of the most unique tenants of this deck is the almost complete absence of human representation. This allows the user of the deck to connect with the symbols in a completely intuitive way free from any pictorial narrative around gender, skin colour, age, size, ability or any other human constructs.

"There are only 4 exceptions to this rule in this deck: The Hanged One, The Tower, Judgement and The World. In each of these cards, the positioning of the human figure is so inherent to the meaning of the card that I chose to use a simple wooden mannequin style symbol.

"I believe this deck can be used and enjoyed by seasoned tarot readers and complete novices alike. The simplicity of the visual symbols makes it a great first deck for a newbie, while the complexity of the visual information makes it a great deep dive deck for a pro."

The 78 cards are velvety smooth while shuffling and have matte red edges. They come in a yellow magnetic flip side box with the accompanying guidebook.
