Nearly 35 years ago, the timeless book The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle was turned into an animated movie. With music by America, voices by Jeff Bridges, Mia Farrow, Christopher Lee, Angela Lansbury, Alan Arkin, and Tammy Grimes, and the immense talent of the animators and creatives who would later form Studio Ghibli, The Last Unicorn was an incredible film that gripped the minds and hearts of all who grew up with it. Though the movie was released decades ago, the music and iconic scenes and lines still echo through our minds.
This officially licensed Tarot deck is based on The Last Unicorn – the themes, the journey, the visuals, and the story all lend itself flawlessly to the nature and structure of a Tarot deck. Each character of the story is multi-faceted, facing their own challenges and having their own motivations, weaving a beautiful tapestry perfectly suited to the reflective and foretelling nature of the Tarot decks. For dabblers, hobbyists, or professional astrologers or card readers, don’t miss out on this amazing deck for your collection.
Featuring the whole of the characters of The Last Unicorn, including Schmendrick, Molly Grue, the Harpy, the Lady Amalthea, the Butterfly, Prince Lir, King Haggard, the Unicorn, the Skeleton, and the terrifying Red Bull, the illustrations are entirely custom. This deck was originally created through a Kickstarter, and is a full 78 card deck (no pip decks here!), laced with the lore and mythology of The Last Unicorn story as it pertains to the cycle and interpretations of the Tarot. Each deck is foiled and ships with a retail box and a complimentary guide book with card descriptions, with an ornate carved box and reading cloth available separately for purchase (retail box is replaced with the carved box if ordered). Cards measure 3.14 x 4.96 inches, with gilded edges.
