Tarot of Vampyres.
Embrace the night as you succumb to visions of blood-red roses and feel the impassioned rhythms of your feverishly pounding heart. The Vampyre legend is rooted in darkness and seduction, yet its eternal message is one of spiritual hunger―to taste the Divine.
Featuring Ian Daniels’ richly evocative Gothic-style artwork, this hauntingly romantic Tarot of Vampyres deck is a tool for spiritual awakening. With it, you can plumb the depths of your inner shadows and emerge in the radiant light of truth.
Inspired by the Rider-Waite structure, the deck shows the Fool, Priestess, and other traditional figures, while the suits bear unique names that call forth the mysterious and macabre: Scepters, Grails, Knives, and Skulls. The companion book provides detailed card meanings, creative exercises, original spreads, and instructions for creating your own Vampyre character.
Includes a 78-card deck and a 312-page book.
I’m particularly fond of this deck because the book mentions the famous night, in the literary world, of the poets. Lord Byron, Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin, John Polidori, Percy Shelly, and Mary’s step-sister, Claire Clairmont gather during a stormy night in 1816 at Byron’s villa in Switzerland. They read about ghost stories in a book called Phantasmagoriana. From this book the author got the inspiration to create this deck. If you have a gothic heart, this deck is a must!
