Earlier this year I was sent a beautiful, handcrafted Oracle set created by the talented illustrator Simona Sanfilippo. Entitled The Taliesin Oracle, I was excited to receive it. As you probably already know, Taliesin is a very important figure in Druidry, and it is always nice to have new spiritual tools that help deepen our understanding of the Taliesin Myth and the wisdom and guidance it offers. I was so deeply impressed by Simona’s Oracle and wanted to share it here.
There are 25 illustrated cards (plus a bonus), including the four Elements. The accompanying explanatory booklet – currently in Italian – binds legend and oracle, with general Celtic info, plus links to free extra web content.
Simona has taken extraordinary care in creating this stunning project, cutting the paper by hand and printing on satin cardboard. The conception, illustrations, texts, layout, deck bag and packaging are all Simona’s work and produced with such loving attention to detail.
Remember that if you have any questions about the deck, or would like to own your own copy, you can write to Simona at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can discover more about how the project came together on her Instagram and Facebook Page, and more about Simona’s work on her Website.
