Trickster’s Journey Exclusive Pre-Order Event

Tarot Reimagined

Inclusive. Evocative. Subversive. Trickster’s Journey: A Tarot Deck and Guidebook is tarot reimagined through the lens of Chinese mythology and Buddhist iconography.

Fine artist Jia Sung draws on the canonic 16th-century Chinese novel Journey to the West to bring new life the traditional major and minor arcana of the tarot. This radical interpretation begins with the renaming of the Fool to Trickster, a character based on the legendary Monkey King.

Each card features Jia’s signature watercolor style, a modern homage to the understated yet radical beauty of traditional Chinese painting. The accompanying guidebook provides an illustrated introduction to the tarot, with descriptions of each card and suggested interpretations, as well as instructions for sample readings and a brief history of tarot. Sidebars throughout explain the cultural significance behind certain card renditions and offer additional mystical insight.

EXCLUSIVE PRE-ORDER OFFER: Pre-order the Trickster’s Journey deck from any retailer and upload your receipt to receive a pack of three (3) exclusive prints featuring original art from the deck, plus a handwritten note from Jia with exclusive insight’s into the symbolism of each card.
