DECK REVIEW PLUS: The Alice Tarot is here!

HERE IT IS! The Fabulous Alice Tarot.

I've been following the progression of this deck for some time. It's a tarot deck based on Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass (click on the links below).

I've been following it with something akin to the species of shameful drooling exhibited by a dog avidly eyeing the fresh made doughnuts on a table. Or, to swap foods, a knave desperate to make off with the luscious Queenly tarts. As it's Alice, we may also dwell on this word "tart" in all of its descriptive deployments. Bodies become words, words become material. It's an exemplary deck not just visually but in its fidelity to the fascination with language, perception, sense and logic characterising Lewis Carroll's literary works.
