Close Encounters of the Tarot Kind

One of the most wonderful aspects of Tarot is the range of visions that utilize the Tarot as a framework for creative, spiritual, and multidimensional encounters.  A fascinating example is the Tarot Trascendental deck by Juan Albiol, published in Spain in 2009.

The images on this deck feature strange hybrid creatures amidst Bosch-like alien landscapes.  A kaleidoscopic mix of humanoid/extraterrestrial, organic/inorganic, and esoteric/scientific imagery keep you entranced (and perplexed) as you explore the deck.

The major arcana depict somewhat traditional scenes, but from an otherworldy perspective:

The minors really take you on a trip to strange worlds and even stranger beings:
