The Oak, Ash & Thorn tarot is created by Stephanie Burrows and Illustrated by Adam Oehlers.
DECK SIZE: The Oak, Ash & Thorn tarot consists of 78 tarot cards (22 Majors and 56 Minors), a ‘Possibilities’ card and two double-sided reference sheets with keywords. Two blank cards protect the deck.
CARD SIZE: The cards measure 7 cm. x 12 cm. with white borders and rounded corners.
CARD BACKS: While the backs aren’t reversible, it doesn’t mean that you can’t read using reversals. We encourage you to use this deck in whatever way suits you best.
CARD STOCK: The cards are printed on eco-friendly, accredited/carbon balanced paper and printed using veggie inks. The cards are protected by a matte, anti-scuff laminate.
BOX: The cards are housed in a light brown, tuck flap box (with an easy-to-open lid and a glued base); beautifully embossed in black veggie-based ink in a woodland design.
Each copy of the Oak, Ash & Thorn tarot includes a uniquely numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
Since we wanted to keep Oak, Ash & Thorn tarot as eco-friendly as possible, no physical guidebook accompanies this tarot deck, and there are no plans for one. Instead, we include two double-sided companion reference sheets featuring keywords that thoughtfully depict the nature of each card, allowing the deck to be read intuitively.
