The Inversion Tarot booklet and artwork is by Jody Boginski Barbessi. This deck is inspired by the artwork created in 1960 by Paul Mathison for the Rolla Nordic Tarot, and is based on the ancient Marseille tarot tradition.

The Rolla Nordic Tarot was conceived in the 1960s by Rolla Nordic (ne Murielle Doris Berulfsen) and illustrated by Paul Mathison. Originally created on white cards with black outlines, this fairly simple deck removed color so the reader could focus more deeply on the card meaning and channeling the correct message from the Guides. Jody Boginski Barbessi was inspired by this deck and took it a step further, inverting the colors so now we have a simple black card deck with white outlines. The original Rolla Nordic Tarot is out of print and is now a collectors item! Goes to show you that you should always hold onto your cards!


Why we love this product!

I appreciate the simplicity of this deck. Completely colorless, this deck allows the tarot reader to build their own visuals and interpretations, much like one does when reading a novel. It allows for more freedom in the analysis of the cards pulled, however I'm not sure I would recommend this deck to a beginner. I learned how to read tarot using The Wild Unknown by Kim Krans. Her use of color helped me contemplate the energies at play. Here you are left alone with a fairly blank state. It offers a nod to tarot decks of yore when the six of cups was simply that: an image of six cups. It allows our mind and spirit to fill in the rest.
