The Looking-Glass Tarot & Alice Oracle
Take your sitters beyond the glass with THE LOOKING-GLASS TAROT & ALICE ORACLE.
All 22 of the major arcana tumble down the rabbit hole with Alice, alongside 5 “Wild Cards” and 5 “Elementals”, to create an entirely new and interactive oracle system. While firmly rooted in the classic concepts and symbols of the tarot, the esoteric gives way to the fevered imagination of Wonderland, providing you and your sitter a curious and immersive reading experience like no other.
Here, among the legendary illustrations of Sir John Tenniel, we explore the archetypes of tarot and divination. But it is not as innocent as it may seem. There is menace behind the mirror. There is ambition and curiosity, mystery and monsters. And of course… we’re all mad here.
In addition the cards in the major arcana are coded with ‘looking-glass writing’ reveals, that allow your sitters to discover not only unique moments of dialog, pulled from the story, but distilled, oracle definitions of each tarot card. With an antique pocket mirror, like the Victorian Valentines of old, your sitters will uncover the meaning of their card. This is a golden opportunity to introduce the tarot to sitter and reader alike, or perhaps find new perspective with Alice.
Each card is deviously marked to insure the mystery entertainer knows the tale before the cards are turned. And the “CHESHIRE DECK” edition includes 7 additional special effect cards that provide even more opportunities for astonishment. The cards will be accompanied by a rather special deck manual that will include a full review of the cards and the oracle system, different uses, performance ideas, AND exclusive routines by David Eichler, PROF. BC, and E.R. Perkins.
