The Field Tarot deck review
Simplicity, minimalism, abstraction, texture, color, geometry, style - these are the associations that The Field Tarot deck evokes in me.
The deck immediately immerses you in its space, the "field". This is a parallel reality in which Tarot images exist, but it is closely related to our feelings and events.
Many cards have a horizon line that helps the reader navigate the space of the deck, and the geometry of the images reveals the inner meaning of each card.
The drawings seem simple, but each image is very accurately drawn, filled with bright textures and harmonious color combinations. It creates a sense of warmth and comfort when we look at the cards. There are no unnecessary details and such minimalism makes our imagination and intuition work.
On each card of the minor arcana, in addition to its name, a short divinatory meaning is indicated. This makes it easier for beginners to understand the images of this deck.
This deck gives the impression of a convenient and understandable tool for analyzing our relationships and life situations. It is perfect for meditation and psychological analysis. The deck surprisingly connected the ancient traditions of classical Tarot, modern perception of the world, and a fresh visual style.
The Field Tarot was created by designer and illustrator Hannah Elizabeth Fofana. She managed to combine her longstanding love of Tarot with her own talent as an artist and graphic designer. Many images of the deck are related to Hannah's personal experiences and express her perception of the world and the Tarot system.
In general, the names of the cards are close to the classic Rider-Waite tradition. But there are some minor changes regarding some cards. For example, the zero card is called "Beginnings".
A new journey full of infinite possibilities is on the horizon. There is a sense of innocence and anticipation as the world awaits exploration. Trust what the universe has in store, embrace the unknown, and get ready to set foot on the divine path."
The Field Tarot deck was released by US Games Systems in January 2021. The set includes 78 cards and a guidebook with a brief description of the meaning of each card.
