The complete 78-card original art tarot deck.
The Japanese word: "sasuraibito" most closely translates to "wanderer." It's an old-fashioned literary term that is falling out of use, meant to describe a person ever-seeking, searching for a place of healing and refuge. This deck is designed to aid the curious wanderer, and accompany you on your adventures to come.
This 78 card deck is inspired loosely by the Raider-Waite deck, contemporary living in the Western world, and Japanese and Buddhist concepts and ideals.
The cards measure 2.75''×4.75'' (70mm×120mm) on 330gsm (super smooth) glossy card stock, and are encased in a beautiful, sturdy lidded box featuring the card back design.
Also included is a 63-page guidebook, with brief notes on the meanings and symbolism of my cards. Inspired by the Rider-Waite tarot deck, some cards follow common iconography fairly closely (Strength, The World), others diverge strongly from tradition (Death, Judgment). Common themes in the deck are the key points in the cycle of life, embracing endings and keeping the fool's open mind.
Burrington painted the original designs between 2015-2017, in sumi ink, watercolor and Windsor & Newton Inks. The original major arcana deck is part of a private collection.
