What is The Straitjacket tarot?
Yes Virginia, there really is a Straitjacket Tarot!
The Straitjacket Tarot is a real, working tarot deck designed by artist and straitjacket fetishist Paul Straitjacket in 2021. The deck itself is a 78 card deck that was created by hand in watercolor, pencil and ink. Absolutely no computer, digital or AI created work went into this project and the artist prides himself on that specifically. The actual 78 art works were created on 12x18 Italian cold-pressed watercolor paper.
The deck is a limited edition series of only 200. The cards are printed on full color 4x6 premium playing card stock to showcase the art of the arcana. Each deck is signed and numbered and come with a full color 24 page collectors booklet.
"I happen to like straitjackets…A LOT. I designed and printed this full 78 tarot card deck that features all original art of the tarot, and every archetype of the major and minor arcana are of me in a straitjacket and red speedo. Straitjackets are my passion, and so is The Tarot. I created a tarot deck that spoke to me as a reader and also as a lover of all things straitjackets. Maybe it’ll speak to you too and open a door to fetish undiscovered, just waiting to be explored. Sometimes, following your dreams requires a straitjacket and speedo! "- Paul Straitjacket, artist
