Tarot of the Cat People

Karen Kuykendall, the artist of the Tarot of the Cat People, is called “the Cat Lady” by people who know her. The cats on almost every card of the deck were modeled on the ten cats that keep Kuykendall company while she works. The original art was painted in acrylic on board, using a “splatter” technique whereby Kuykendall masked areas and painted around them using a toothbrush. The effect is subtle, almost pointillistic gradations of color. The deck is set in the fantasy world of the Outer Regions, where the Cat People live. The five kingdoms of the Outer Regions correspond to the Major Arcana and the four suits of the Minor Arcana. There is a separate companion book for this deck called The Ancestral Path Tarot. The book is written from the point of view of an explorer to these Outer Regions.
