“Botanica is my dream project come to life. Back in 2015 I painted the first three cards that would eventually become a full blown tarot deck. It’s dedicated to my obsession with symbolism and specifically the language of flowers. Each card has a plant whose nature in some way reflects the meaning of the traditional tarot card.” — Kevin Jay Stanton
Created by illustrator Kevin Jay Stanton, Botanica is a 78-card tarot deck featuring vibrant traditional paintings that delve into the lore and symbolism of the plant kingdom. Sprouting from years of research into botany, mythology, and history, Botanica marries the tradition of Tarot to a lexicon far more ancient: the natural vocabulary of life on Earth.
The deck features the complete set of major and minor arcana as plants, all painted in luscious and colorful acrylics and paired with the objects from their suit. This box set includes the full deck in a gilded drawer box, a 96-page hardcover explaining the symbolism, research, and process behind Botanica, a golden dandelion charm, an embroidered patch, four terrarium stickers, and six tarot-sized postcards.
