The Linen Edition is now available with a full-size Guidebook for only $16 more. No coupon necessary, simply make your selection above for the instant discount. This option began on January 1st, 2024 because Mari really wants the Guidebook to be a part of the experience and this is our way of making it more accessible. (This reduced price may change in the future if we’re not able to meet our financial responsibilities as a company. This business supports Mari as a full-time artist/independent publishing house, as well as three staff on the Gentle Tarot team.)
Much love to our journeys! 💗
Introducing the Gentle Tarot Linen Edition! Inspired by the common playing card deck, this edition comes in a modified size (70mm x 105mm) that makes riffle shuffling easy for all hand sizes. The linen finish allows for the smoothest Gentle Tarot experience to date!
I recommend alternating shuffling between art face down and art face up in order to maintain the card stock. Please note that the card stock is not comparable to the durability of the First Edition or Pocket Edition. This deck is meant to be easier on a budget and also more suitable for those with arthritic hands. My aim was to create a version of the Gentle Tarot that is still high in quality but able to reach a broader spectrum of people, including those who come from a similar background as myself where money is not very disposable. Offering highly reduced domestic shipping and reduced international shipping is another way I hope to offer a more accessible experience.
Gentle Tarot decks include a total of 89 cards. There are 81 tarot cards, including an extra Major Arcana card and two Lovers card options (non-human butterfly and gender-neutral human). The additional 8 cards are a colorful batch of Quick Reference Keys, sample spreads, Opening and Closing Intentions, as well as a personal note and link to the PDF Guidebook.
The cards are printed using FSC Certified paper as an effort to limit the use of non-renewable paper sources. As always, a portion of proceeds are donated to environmental conservation.
Feel free to use the Gift Note available here if you are purchasing this deck for a loved one and want to let them know that a Linen Edition deck is on the way.
