Peacock Tarot by Peter Grahame

Somewhere near the end of last year I obtained this majors only deck by the Albuquerque based self-taught artist Peter Grahame, but somehow I forgot to post it here, blame it on my moving at that period because it is a creation that deserves being shared with you all.In 2009 it was published in a very limited edition of only 50 decks housed in a relatively big cardboard box

The Peacock tarot was created by mixing real persons  in 21st century dreamlike settings with digital collage and editing techniques without making each card overly heavy or worked upon, yet giving it a very rich and strong look. Set up as a meditation deck for those studying the tarot and also to be used for tarot readings this 22 cards deck gives a contemporary look to the age-old Tarot archetypes.
