Each card in this fully-illustrated 78-card deck is a fantastically realistic image of a fairytale feline world where Baroque cats link and sashay through gardens, palaces, inns and theatres. All sorts of incidents take place, and each card seems to carry a whole story within it.
The lively and engaging companion book discusses the backgrounds and meanings of each image, with simple instructions on how to read the deck - reading with "reversals" is included, and as well as popular spreads, a challenging new spread "The Cat's Tale" is described. There is also a charming and enlightening section on the cats' interpretations of the cards.
This may be the most "readable" cat tarot ever. It is certainly one of the most lavishly and lovingly illustrated. A must for anyone who loves costumes, castles or cats - not to mention tarot!
Note: Deck is also available separately, packaged with informative booklet.

More than 4000 hours of work went into this deck and book - and we loved every minute of the work! The stories of the Baroque Bohemian Cats are pure fantasy - but in a strange way we want them to be believable too - a journey into a world in which Cats rule over their own spectacular and dreamlike Catdom.
The images are not always sweet - some are odd, dramatic or poignant - so that they really do make up a whole richly layered world with its ups and downs, sadness and fun.
We hope there are many, many tales in this deck - and that it will give insight as well as pure enjoyment.About the Author:
Karen Mahony and Alex Ukolov are the Russian/Irish partners who founded "baba studio" in Prague in 2002. The studio has a rapidly growing reputation for producing beautiful, high-quality publications that are intelligent and thought-provoking, as well as visually gorgeous.
In 2003, their "Tarot of Prague" was voted best tarot deck of the year (by Aeclectic, the world's largest online tarot community). In 2004, both the "Baroque Bohemian Cats' Tarot" and the related "Bohemian Cats" picture book again show baba's unique approach to illustration and image-making - surreal, fantastic, funny and provocative, but also simply warm and very likeable.
