Major Arcana Tarot Posters

Block-Printed Tarot Posters

I recently started working on posters inspired by tarot cards in the Major Arcana and the order is completely dictated by what comes up in my own life experiences. ;) Seven of my hand-printed Major Arcana tarot posters are available now!

All tarot posters are hand-carved and printed using the reduction printmaking method. Reduction printmaking involves carving each color layer of the poster from the same block, leaving only the final, typically black, layer. This method is also known as “suicide printing” because you only have one shot at getting it right.

All of my Major Arcana tarot posters were printed in editions of 19, every print completely unique – Except Death is an edition of 17 because 2 piece of paper were missing… Due to the printmaking method, I can’t reprint again, so once they’re gone, they’re gone! 

Check out the videos below for a peek into the reduction printmaking method I use to create these art deco-inspired tarot card posters.
