Robin Wood, creator, and artist of the Robin Wood tarot deck has passed away from cancer according to this site. I regularly use her deck and love the artistry and meanings she worked so hard to portray.
For all you Dragon fans out there, she also collaborated with the Queen Dragon Herself, Anne McCaffrey, on The People of Pern, giving faces to all of our favorite characters.
According to The Fool’s Dog, Robin Wood was the first artist to include pagan imagery into her tarot deck.
Evidently, there is some worry about end-of-life expenses, and The Fool’s Dog put out an app with her tarot. So if you have a few bucks, go buy the app for your phone or buy her deck. I also found out she wrote a book on ethics for the pagan community and look forward to making it my next month’s book club project.
She will be greatly missed.
