The Pacific Northwest Tarot is a 78-card deck illustrated with plant and animal life from the Pacific Northwest. Each card is represented by a different species that makes its home here. Short fiction and prose passages in the guidebook connect each illustration to its tarot archetype.

Artist Brendan Marnell began drawing the illustrations in April of 2020. Equating the isolation of the early days of lockdown to a period of hibernation, Brendan drew a black bear as the Hermit card. Next came a crow as the Magician and grey foxes as the Lovers. The activity of drawing kept him balanced, and the project gained momentum.

He sought to learn more about the Pacific Northwest at a time when he couldn’t explore it in person. The result is this gorgeous deck full of stunning illustrations that capture the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.
