The Sasuraibito Tarot - Stasia Burrington
The EIGHTH Printing! ❤️
There have been a slew of counterfit Sasuraibito Tarot Decks on the market, this is a legit eighth printing purchased directly from Stasia Burrington. (Dirt Queen SF will always support artists, and NEVER sell anything counterfeit - we treat our relationship with the artists we carry as sacred!) You can tell by the box and booklet being marked with "Eighth Printing" as well as by the gold concentric circles on the box, with 8 rings. Counterfeit decks will be less expensive, and also of very poor quality, and often missing a guidebook.
This listing is Stasia's own creation. She printed and published these with her own direction. This project was a work of profound introspection and love, of which Stasia is very proud, and excited to share it with you - Dirt Queen is so excited to carry them in shop!!! :)
The complete 78-card original art tarot deck.
The Japanese word: "sasuraibito" most closely translates to "wanderer." It's an old-fashioned literary term that is falling out of use, meant to describe a person ever-seeking, searching for a place of healing and refuge. This deck is designed to aid the curious wanderer, and accompany you on your adventures to come.
This 78 card deck is inspired loosely by the Raider-Waite deck, contemporary living in the Western world, and Japanese and Buddhist concepts and ideals.
The cards measure 2.75''×4.75'' (70mm×120mm) on 330gsm (smooth, sturdy) card stock with a matte UV finish, and are encased in a beautiful, sturdy lidded box featuring the card back design.
Also included is a 63-page guidebook, with brief notes on the meanings and symbolism of my cards. The deck is loosely inspired by the Rider-Waite tarot deck. While some cards follow common iconography fairly closely (Strength, The World), others diverge strongly from tradition (Death, Judgment). Common themes in the deck are the key points in the cycle of life, embracing endings and keeping the fool's open mind.
Stasia painted the original designs between 2015-2017, in sumi ink, watercolor and Windsor & Newton Inks. The original major arcana deck lives in the personal collection of a patron in New York.
