Clown Town Tarot

Three clowns hang on to a Ferris wheel.

About the deck

Clown Town Tarot is a colorful deck full of clowns. It’s also the first tarot deck I created! The trumps and their coloring were particularly inspired by the Camoin-Jodorowsky Tarot de Marseille. However, to include as many clowns as humanly possible, the pip cards are also fully illustrated, based on numerology. The four suits are Court Jesters (Swords), White Clowns (Cups), Rodeo Clowns (Coins), and Tramp Clowns (Batons).

This page just gives an overview of the project. If you’d like to see the cards online you can visit the guidebook or download the images.

The first edition

Released via Kickstarter (thank you to all the backers!), with large cards and a purple cardback.

The second edition

By popular demand! Bridge-sized, with red cardbacks, and Harlequin stepping in for Pantaloon to play the Devil, this time.

I also created a loosely-related deck of French-suited playing cards, Clown Town Playing Cards.
