Welcome to our Cultural Revolution page. Here you can see all of our cards before you purchase. We know as tarotists and collectors many like to see particular cards before purchase.
Propaganda art is a special type of art in that its purpose is to direct the viewer towards a particular way of thinking. Propaganda art has been utilized since ancient times but was especially noticable to the past few generations through wars such as the Second World War, The Vietnam War, the Korean War and so on. Everyone from America, to Australia, Germany to Russia, have all used propaganda in times of war and China was no different.
Nowadays we're more likely to see propaganda in the international news and commercial products.
It is important to note that while our tarot is based on Chinese propaganda art, the art was not designed to convince the reader of a particular political belief but rather tell the story of Tarot through Chinese Propaganda art themed work.
To PURCHASE our Tarot, visit our Store. We've had purchases from Taiwan and China all the way to Australia, the U.S and beyond and we've been told our Tarot is a great work of art.
Here's what Bill Heidrick said about our Chinese Propaganda Art Tarot (formerly the Cultural Revolution Tarot)
"The Cultural Revolution Tarot is well executed artistically and structurally compatible with the popular decks of the Golden Dawn tradition (Waite, Albano, Case etc.) Beyond that, sit down, hold onto your hat and get ready for a very different ride. " - Bill Heidrick
