Dark Mansion Tarot, Limited Ed.

Subject

Tim Burton's Corpse Bride

Description

80 cards + a title card + a "certificate of authenticity" signed/numbered card. The cards are housed in a drawstring bag that fits inside a wooden box with a hinged lid. (According to the Taroteca website, the wooden boxes for the limited edition were handmade.)

The name of the deck is woodburned on the box lid and also stamped in gold on the drawstring bag.

The cards measure 8.78 cm wide x 14 cm long. The cardstock is flexible, with a soft, matte finish that I can only describe as luxuriant and velvet-like. Seriously, these cards are a joy to hold. The cards are edged in matte gold.

The card back design is fully reversible.

Strength is VIII and Justice is XI. The Fool is numbered 0.

Suits are Wands, Cups, Swords, and Pentacles. The court cards are Page, Knight, Queen, and King.

The minor arcana are scenic in the RWS style, but with art clearly inspired by Tim Burton's 2005 film Corpse Bride.

Two extra cards are included -- alternate versions of the Sun and the Moon.

My copy is #282 out of a limited edition of 500. The certificate of authenticity is hand-numbered and signed.

I'm having difficulty pinning down the publication date/year. No year is printed on the cards, box, or bag, and the Taroteca website doesn't list a year, either. However, the first product reviews of the limited edition were posted in December 2018, so that seems to have been when the deck was first available.

According to the Taroteca site, the limited edition retailed for $139 USD, and is sold out.
