The astonishing result of mixing hard science and real art into a tarot deck!
Science Tarot is a creative science communication project that combines science, art and mythology into a tarot deck to engage and awaken people's curiosity about science and the natural world.
The deck includes 80 cards of original science-themed artworks and a 100 page booklet that walks you through the deck, including new science-based spreads, all enclosed within a 2-piece hard box.
The deck illustrates science stories to engage scientists, artists and tarot enthusiasts alike. In this way we aim to bridge disparate communities and foster both science education and self-discovery.
A 100-page booklet offers a science story for every card plus explores new science spread layouts. Includes 78 original artworks on 3" x 5" cards on high quality cardstock, vivid colors and a different artist for each Suit. The Major Arcana are science stories, the Face Cards feature scientist archetypes, and each Suit describes its own Hero's Journey. Sturdy and beautiful 2-piece box stores all cards and booklet easily.
Tarot cards decorated with symbolic images have been used for centuries for entertainment, insight and exploration. The images on the cards depict mythic human experiences and archetypes. Science Tarot reinterprets the tarot with 78 original artworks inspired by scientific discovery of the natural world. This offers an engaging, personal invitation into diverse fields of science, including astronomy, chemistry, physics, and biology.
Science Tarot cards can be laid out in patterns and read like traditional tarot. By viewing the science concepts on each card, associations trigger insights about our lives, the world around us, and our place in it. Joseph Campbell's Hero's Journey is adapted to tell each suit's unique story from Ace to Ten. Find your own hero's path through the myths and archetypes represented in these science stories.
Created by a collaboration of talent including post-doc scientists, professional tarot readers, graphic designers and published artists, united by a desire to explore and create at the intersection of science and art: Wands Suit by Janelle Schneider, Pentacles Suit by Kristy Whitehouse, Swords Suit by Shari Arai DeBoer, Cups Suit by Tammy Stellanova, Major Arcana by Kristian Johnson Michiels (adapted original Major Arcana art by Suzanne Forbes for publication), Graphics by John Daniel, and created by Logan Austeja Daniel, Martin Azevedo, and Raven Hanna.
The Science Tarot is a fascinating set for illumination and discovery, and many science stories can be enjoyed through its lens.

The Voynich Manuscript

The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...More
