Grim Agents of Cosmic Forces…
In the early twentieth century, legendary horror writer H.P. Lovecraft described an ancient tome as “the unmentionable Necronomicon of the mad Arab Abdul Alhazred . . . a book which I had never seen, but of which I had heard monstrous things whispered.”
In the early twenty-first century, best-selling author Donald Tyson wove the myriad rumors and whispers of Lovecraft’s dread grimoire into the epic fantasy novels Necronomicon and Alhazred. Intended as a trilogy, the Necronomicon Tarot completes Tyson’s formidable work.
The Necronomicon Tarot brings the phantasmagoric desert wanderings of Alhazred to life in a stunningly visceral deck and companion book. Seventy-eight captivating illustrations by fantasy artist Anne Stokes capture the mythic and monstrous world of Tyson’s Necronomicon while remaining true to the underlying structure and tradition of tarot.
Prepare to enter a world where the accursed and tormented poet wanders in search of the greatest and darkest magic — divination with the dead.
This kit includes 78-card tarot deck with a black organdy bag and 240-page companion tarot book.
