The Three of Cups card in The Fantastic Menagerie TarotWe've been asked a few times about the Three of Cups card that we have been including as an extra.
There is an interesting story to this beautiful image. Originally we intended The Mythical Creatures Tarot to be have scenic, RWS-style Minors. The Three of Cups that you see here was one of the first of the Minors that we designed - and turned out to be the last!
Our artist, Elena, found the project very demanding, and so after ten years (no, really!) we realised that asking her to do scenic cards for all the Minors, would mean that there was little chance the deck would ever be finished. That's when we decided to change to a decorative, but not scenic, style for the Majors - which now became more like Marseilles pips.
