The Dead Waite (Plain box, 9 left)
Please note that this white boxed version of the deck is the original version of the Dead Waite (not the Apocalyptic version) and is signed and numbered. It is part of a very small batch of printed decks which came to our studio AFTER the original 35 decks that were ordered for the campaign. This deck is 1 of 10 decks that were printed separately. The artwork on the box is drawn as usual but is colored in Sepia tones to differentiate between the original 35 and the new printing of 10. The decks will be numbered, for example 1/10, 2/10, 3/10 etc.
PLEASE NOTE also that each artwork, being hand drawn, is different, and therefore the box pictured should be taken only as an example and not necessarily the box you will receive.
Ships from Ireland and shipping is included in the price.
Card size: 2.75 X 4.75 inches. (Standard Tarot size)
Cardstock: 300 gsm
The Dead Waite Tarot is inspired by the apocalyptic events that took place during a near forgotten time in history. Everyone in the “Waite Smith” world has been affected (and most infected) by a strange zombie-like outbreak.
Witness with horror as the once majestic kings are diminished; a shadow of their former selves. Despair at the dead eyes of the lost queens as they scramble for coherent thought. By golly gosh, it is the stuff of nightmares! Not your mother’s Tarot deck!
Every card has been transformed, with once pristine costumes torn and shredded with bones sticking out and rib cages on display. Angry zombies, wistful zombies, the Dead Waite has a whole host of undead characters.
If you're a lover of horror or a bit of a survivalist at heart, these cards are made for you; I draw only for the fans of my art. Such controversial cards I would not make for just anyone.
This deck will appeal to those who are able to look at life a little humerus-ly.
