Inversion Tarot is based on and inspired by the mid-century artwork originally created in 1960 by Paul Mathison for the Rolla Nordic Tarot. This deck follows the ancient Marseille tarot tradition. The updated images have been inverted and refined with interesting new details and decorative elements brought into focus for a striking, contemporary deck.
The pocket-sized deck includes 78 black and white cards and 64-page booklet in a handy tin. Booklet includes instructions for two tarot spreads.

What Customers Are Saying About Inversion Tarot in a Tin
This deceptively simple-looking deck draws on Paul Mathison’s “Rolla Nordic Tarot” and traditional Marseille tarot illustrations to give readers a new appreciation of tarot imagery.
Looking at familiar imagery, reproduced in black and white and in the negative, traditional tarot becomes a new force to be reckoned with. These drawings are elegant despite their stark nature. This is a truly new perspective on a tarot that has become so familiar.
Beautiful little addition to my collection. Absolutely adore the heavy black and minimal white pip cards, and the artwork diverges just enough from traditional images that it feels new. Great size, wish more decks came in tins!
