Lost Tarot

Creator(s): Dominic Murphy
Date: 2012
Country: United Kingdom

Publisher: self-published
Number of Cards: 54

Type: other
Reference: artist's page

The artist called his deck  "Lost Tarot", because it has in addition to the conventional 22 Majors another 32 cards, which are according to Murphy the "lost tarot occult cards from the misty past" or " Strange Arcanas from the ancient legends of Atlantis".

Some of the additional cards show occult and alchemical symbology, others seem to be sort of "free associations" to the keyword "tarot" that came to the artists imagination. For example there is a "Kaplan" card, which may refer to Stuart Kaplan, author of the  Encyclopedia of Tarot.

The original paintings are watercolour on watercolour paper done in a  surrealistic style. The cards -size 64mm x 89mm- are digitally printed and came in a plastic box .

There is no LWB and there are no explanations to the cards on the artist's website.
