Do the dead ever leave us? Monica Knighton’s Tarot of the Dead explores death with wry humor and whimsy.

Inspired by the Mexican Day of the Dead, a holiday honoring deceased friends and family, this deck seamlessly blends Mexican tradition with European divination. Engaging watercolor artwork-often depicting human and animal figures as skeletons-embraces the inevitability of our mortality. The Fool hitchhikes with his skeletal dog and The Hierophant sits in a lawn chair among pink flamingos.

The fifty-six Minor Arcana feature pens, coffins, pistols, and film reels, an intriguing twist on the usual pips. The Tarot deck and the accompanying instruction booklet are in both English and Spanish.
