Tarot Blast From The Past: The Ukiyoe Tarot

It's a blast from our past! First published in 1982, this deck celebrates a specific style of Japanese art. Ukiyo-e 
is Japanese woodblock prints or paintings that depict the everyday life of ancient Japan (c. 16th century).

This Marseilles-style deck has long been a collector's dream and now we are bringing it back.

"You can’t please all of the Tarot readers all of the time, but I think this deck could come very close. Readers of all skill levels and most backgrounds will find this deck useful. Although this deck has a very specific theme, it is not a niche deck."
