What Customers Are Saying About Mother Mort's Carnival 1897

This is Carnival 1897, where the triple goddess Mother Mort reigns. Our protagonist is Jane, who goes on a carnival odyssey, meeting a menagerie of creatures and frightful characters. The oracle deck comes with a hardcover storybook. For the cast of characters (and how to interpret each card), there’s the full-color booklet.

As my first read with the deck, I shuffled the cards, then cut it with the admission ticket (doubling as a bookmark), and turned over the Light Bringer. “The Light Bringer provides illumination for the carnival-goers. . . Like fire, this light can take many forms. The Light Bringer card reveals that you are on the correct path and should continue trusting the course you’ve laid for yourself.”

Mother Mort’s Carnival 1897 Oracle is creepy in the most delightful way. The pearlescent green holographic embossing catches the light in a way that convinces you that your deck is alive and sentient. You swear you just saw that veiled figure in Mirror Mary move. And did Morrigan the Great Queen just turn her head to look at you?

It’s hard to put this into words, but what I can say is that experiencing the creativity and artistry contained within this box took my breath away. It's a passion project brought lovingly and completely into this world for us to experience, and as a collector and lover of the art of divination cards, I’ve enjoyed slowly savoring every single minute of this experience. From the box and ephemera, to the cards, to the actual illustrated gothic fiction story book contained inside, this was a journey from the beginning until the very end. The production is undoubtably fantastic and the cards themselves provide some profound messages that have been welcomed in my daily practice. Going forward I will be using this for daily pulls, and to root out underlying/hidden energies in readings regarding people, personalities or relationships. I think this could also be a great deck to use in correlation with a journaling practice, since the guidebook presents questions and alternative thought with each interpretation. Would I have liked the deck to have more cards, yes. Why? Because then I could use it more freely for all different kinds of readings as opposed to keeping it to the more specific uses. But then again, perhaps it is true that these souls only need to appear when they are most needed after all. And if so, then I think it is perfect just as it is. Highly recommend.

I am thoroughly OBSESSED with the story this deck has to tell. This deck follows the story of Jane, with the cards pulling on the characters from the full story included with the deck. I really love how much of a full experience this oracle feels like so far, I can’t WAIT to get further into it and Jane’s story.
