The Golden Tarot is a sumptuous Waite-Smith clone comprised of collage imagery from paintings by less-familiar European masters; these Tarot cards pay tribute to artwork of the Middle Ages and early Renaissance celebrating the exploration of tarot and its artistic heritage. Adding to the period feel, the cards have gilt edges and come in a sturdy, beautiful boxed set with a companion book by the creator.

 Deck creation and/or publication process
Originally this deck was made available by creator Kat Black online, only to be (conspicuously) pirated in 2002 and sold without permission. Undeterred, Black was offered a publishing deal by U.S. Games, and put a stop to the illegal distribution of her deck.
 Creator's comments
"Golden Tarot has been collaged completely from artwork of the late Middle Ages and early Renaissance. From a time of violence, pestilence and oppression came poignant images of gentle beauty and human frailty. They speak to me of a truth that is timeless, and hope that flowers even in the darkest conditions. I hope that they also speak to you."
