The Shadow of Oz


What a delight it is to use the new Wizard of Oz Tarot deck for readings. I am sure my Great Grandfather, L. Frank Baum would have been delighted with it. Such a great way to walk the yellow brick road... receive the wisdom of Oz... and find the way home.

A full-color 78 card tarot deck based on the world of Oz as created by L. Frank Baum in his incredible 14 original Oz books, illustrated by wonderfully talented comic book artists. Discover how these primal American fairy tale figures give us insight to the archetypal forces of the imagination. Also learn how your own stories, whether in fiction or "real life", can grow and improve when examined in the dark light of these titanic symbols.

Mark Anthony Masterson, author of the modern Oz comic Dorothy,  writes the accompanying text and tarot interpretations.

 

Genesis

As Illogical Associates, we love bringing art and stories to the world. While sketching out our next volume of Oz comics we got to talking about the iconic imagery of Oz and how easily it fit with the archetypal symbols of the Tarot. From there, it wasn't long before we realized we could make an entire Oz deck a reality with help from our friends in the comic book world.

A Journey of Your Own

A celebration of imagination, and an exploration of the human psyche through the twin lenses of Oz and Tarot, this deck will please Oz enthusiasts, comic art lovers, and wisdom seekers. 

You can engage with the Tarot, wonder at the Oz references, or play Cribbage with this deck. It's all up to your imagination.

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT THE SHADOW OF OZ...

REVIEWS

"It is a fun deck, tapping into a mythos that has enchanted millions over the last hundred years or so since its creation.  It is also a proper, very readable deck, with a depth of meaning at both a visual and story level." - Inner Whispers

"The Shadow of Oz cleverly transposes the imagery of the wild and wooly land of Oz onto traditional tarot structure to make a deck that is eminently readable, relatable, yet hangs on to the air of magic and mystery that will evoke nostalgia and echoes of beauty in most of us." - Amanda Donnelly, 78 Whispers in My Ear

"Beautiful deck..fantastic publisher...perfect combination!!!" - Amazon.com
