True Black was conceived as a timeless tarot.
Every detail has been carefully chosen to
embody an exacting perfection, creating a deck
that lasts a lifetime and speaks of many more.
Illustrated in a style that refuses to be placed in any specific era or time, each card emerges from the darkness a story in itself, embodied in a painting that is both ancient and contemporary.
Core to the concept of True Black is the interconnectedness of all, embodied in the stars and skies shared by humanity through all lands and epochs. Each box, booklet, and card back is adorned with maps of the heavens.
Every card back features a gloss-on-matte starmap, and every card title is detailed in a glossy finish.
All 22 Major Arcana cards feature an individual and distinctive additional gloss design, specifically illustrated to complement the card.
Not only is every deck hand-edged in black paint
by the creator, they are also crafted with world-class
precision manufacturing, resulting in a deck that is
scratch resistant, water resistant, and soft as a petal
Exceptionally high-end printing and manufacturing methods result in a card that is surprisingly scratch resistant, impervious to cracked or chipped edges, and feel as velvety-soft as a rose petal.
Truly the best of both worlds
A timeless tarot should last. In addition to being rugged and scratch resistant, each card is water resistant.
Take True Black with you.
Use it, love it, and fear nothing.
Each card is printed on thick 18pt stock, resulting in a substantial and solid feel unrivaled by any deck, and 50% thicker than a standard RWS deck.
Every True Black deck comes complete with:
- 79 cards on thick, matte stock
- Magnetic book-style box
- Guide booklet
79 beautifully illustrated cards are housed in a foil-stamped book-style magnetic box.
Exacting and robustly constructed, it will be a statement piece in and of itself, featuring a seamless starmap that stretches from front to spine to back.
A starmap theme continues around the box, wrapping into the inside cover and extending to the guide booklet.
