Created by illustrator Kevin Jay Stanton, Botanica is a 78-card tarot deck featuring vibrant traditional paintings that delve into the lore and symbolism of the plant kingdom. Sprouting from years of research into botany, mythology, and history, Botanica marries the tradition of Tarot to a lexicon far more ancient: the natural vocabulary of life on Earth.
The deck features the complete set of major and minor arcana as plants, all painted in luscious and colorful acrylics and paired with the objects from their suit. This box set includes the full 78-card deck in a gilded paperboard box, saddle-stitched booklet explaining the symbolism of meanings behind Botanica, and six mailable tarot-sized postcards.
Kevin Jay Stanton is a freelance illustrator with a green
thumb and penchant for creating more work than one person can handle. He
spent his childhood playing a healthy dose of video games, as well as
reading a ton of fairytales, mythology, and books on nature. Nowadays he
does basically the same thing, but draws them too. With Annie Stoll, he
co-created, curated, and art directed the 2nd Most Funded comic
anthology project on Kickstarter: 1001 Knights.
