In the Floriography Tarot deck, I incorporated many Victorian-era floriography symbols as well as modern day interpretations of herbs, plants, and flowers. Most importantly, each card features a character or image from my family history with a few exceptions of images sourced from a rare 1914 issue of National Geographic.
Floriography Tarot is inspired by the Victorian custom of floriography, or "the language of flowers," through which people exchanged messages and expressed their sentiments using symbols attributed to certain flowers and plants. In this deck, you will find ancient interpretations of herbs, plants, and flowers, as well as classic Victorian symbolism and more current interpretations for the modern Tarot reader. The Minor Arcana suits are: Pentacles (sunflowers), Cups (tulips), Wands (tree trunks), and Swords (birds of paradise flowers). The heads of the 22 characters of the Major Arcana are each replaced by an herb, plant, flower, or tree that represents the symbolic meaning of every card.
The whole deck looks elegant and airy, nothing heavy but 78 cards of elegance and nostalgia.
