This 78-card deck draws on literary themes, art, and symbolism from the Dickensian Victorian era, while remaining grounded in the traditional tarot. The Major Arcana's focus is no Dickens's life and history, including real people who made their way into his novels—like his father, the Emperor Card, in the form of Wilkins Micawber, and his mother who became Mrs. Nicklesby and here is portrayed as the Empress. The four suits of fire, air, earth, and water are populated by his most popular and notable characters and novels. Uniquely, the cards have a horizontal orientation, allowing for scenes to play out. The guidebook, written in Dickensian language, analyzes keywords and clears up the meaning of each card in your own life and in the characters on the page.
