The Fantasy Showcase Tarot
This product is currently sold out.
Now out of print, the Fantasy Showcase Tarot was originally published in 1980. Each card of fantasy art was created by a different artist, and six extra cards have been added to the deck.
The Fantasy Showcase Tarot was organized by Bruce Pelz and the project premiered at the 1980 Worldcon.
Petz invited many science fiction and fantasy artists to create a Tarot deck. He began asking artists to participate in August of 1969; the deck was completed in 1980. Each of the 85 cards was drawn by a different artist, with no specific theme or art style for the deck as a whole.
During the 11 years Bruce was collecting the cards, the pool of artists involved changed, and several cards that had been submitted were re-done with improvements. Some submissions were rejected: a "female nude, surrounded by the four Signs of the Apostles, for The Hierophant; the crownless very young man, submitted as a King; two or three others, perhaps."
The Fantasy Showcase Tarot adds several extra cards to the deck, including four extra Court Cards, “Ladies”, (above Knights and below Queens), and some extra Majors, including “Separation” and “The Farrier”.
