Reference: artist's website

The  Wild Unknown is an artist's collective named after a line from the Bob Dylan song Isis - "So I cut off my hair and I rode straight away, For the wild unknown country where I could not go wrong". This collective seems to be aiming for a unified branding across very different products and media. They describe themselves as creators of music (the band); visual art (the tarot, calendars, art prints); jewelry and curios (glass or crystal prisms, etc) and books ; as well as purveyors of a certain lifestyle/aesthetic (bohemian urban transplanted to woodsy but-not-too-rural environments) via a cabin owned by them, were they hold parties and musical events . 

There are no human figures pictured, only objects, plants and animals.The artwork is created in fine pen drawings, subtly coloured in small areas with watercolour.

The Majors have a number at the top and the title at the bottom of the card. The court cards are father, mother , son and daughter and have their title at the bottom, the minors have a number at the top.

The deck is enclosed in  a hard-cover box, which has a  black ribbon pull inside and is covered with intricate drawings. It came with a fold-out newsprint drawing and guide.
