- Full Description
In our minds, since we are not gamers or Tarot deck enthusiasts, this is a rare new art book by one of our favorite artists. We handle everything we can get with Echo Chernik's work, including her calendars. This handsome art book is first a compilation of her Cyberpunk illustrations for Shadowrun, the role-playing game, each piece full page. Second, it features detailed descriptions of how each was converted from the Rider Waite Smith images into the Shadowrun Sixth World Tarot Deck.
So what we get are dozens and dozens of full page illustrations of fantasy men and women and beasts, all based on Tarot cards. Then following each set of four, we get a look at the original (vintage) Tarot card images, along with the new image, and their explanation of what each one means. So, two-thirds of the book is simply wonderful cyberpunk and sci-fi/fantasy illustrations; the balance collects these additional tarot illustrations and explanations.
Echo is an internationally award-winning illustrator. She has signed each of our copies on the first page in silver ink. This was produced as a Kickstarter program and as such will probably be limited.
