My Twin Peaks collection is embarrassingly extensive, and there are some prizes in the lot. But this astonishingly beautiful limited-edition Tarot deck creatively interpreted and sumptuously illustrated by Benjamin Mackey is now vying for the title of my very favorite Twin Peaks collectible.
For those unfamiliar with the Tarot, the deck includes an introductory essay by John Thorne (editor of Wrapped in Plastic Magazine and Blue Rose Magazine) that briefly situates Mackey's rendering of the deck in relation to Pamela Colman Smith's original illustration of the popular Rider-Waite Tarot Deck. One needn't be a Tarot enthusiast, however, to enjoy the beauty and ingenuity of this deck, which is just beaming with appreciation for and insight into our favorite place, both wonderful and strange.
There are better, high-resolution individual images of each card available at Mackey's website, but the deck as a whole (and all the terrific inserts and bonuses for those who supported the IndieGoGo campaign that made it happen) is so gorgeously done that I simply couldn't resist doing a post on it. Enjoy perusing this incredible piece of Twin Peaks memorabilia that is sure to become a classic of the genre!
