In one of the better pop culture collaborations, HBO teamed up with Chronicle Books to release a set of tarot cards themed after its most popular show, Game of Thrones.
The project is supervised by Liz Dean, a card game professional who is responsible for adapting the characters of the series to those of the tarot cards. Illustrations were made by Craig Coss, American cartoonist, experienced tarot player and a big fan of the show. The set contains 78 cards as well as a manual entirely customized according to the universe of Westeros. Liz Dean explains:
"Archetypes are the foundation of every great tale–and Game of Thrones is an outstanding story, a rich weave… From the icy landscapes beyond the Wall to the hot deserts of Dorne, the world of Game of Thrones is replete with symbolism: an abundant source for a new tarot deck."
