Remember those beautiful Twin Peaks tarot card designs inspired by Pamela Coleman Smith’s iconic tarot illustrations?
You could say it was always in the cards, but your overwhelmingly positive feedback definitely motivated artist Benjamin Mackey to release them as a complete 78-card deck with 22 Major Arcana and 56 Minor Arcana in full color. To get the production started on The Magician Longs to See Tarot, he launched a worldwide
pre-order campaign via crowdfunding site Indiegogo with an estimated delivery in December 2016.
The Major Arcana have manifested as some of the primary movers and shakers in Twin Peaks, while the Minor Arcana tend towards depicting infamous scenes and moments in the series. My goal is to strike a delicate balance between accurately representing the respective characters while still maintaining readability as a deck.
Twenty bucks gets you the full deck with a handwritten thank you note. Add $10 for a booklet with an intro by John Thorne of Wrapped In Plastic fame. For $50, you’ll get the deck and the booklet in a custom designed cardboard tuck box, plus two campaign-exclusive limited edition creator cards (Mark Frost as “The Writer” and David Lynch as “The Director”) and an original and random Twin Peaks-related sketch by Benjamin. Multiples are also available.
Twin Peaks Tarot Cards For The Magician Who Longs To See Through The Darkness Of Future Past
Pre-order The Magician Longs to See Tarot Deck and watch this project get fully funded by the end of this day!
UPDATE: “Holy mother of BOB!” That’s Ben’s reaction to the campaign reaching its funding goal within an hour after this post.
UPDATE #2: This campaign has been cancelled and the deck will not be for sale. You may find some on eBay.

My friend Caroline Kenner runs “The Fool’s Dog”, a Tarot app. Do you mind if I direct her to this site?
How do I buy these?
Is there one of Maddie’s vision of Bob in the Haywards’ house? That’s the single creepiest moment in the series for me…
I’m sooooo excited about these!! Can’t wait to see all the major arcana cards! 🙂 🙂 🙂 My brain is going wild thinking of who is representing each card!!!!! Psyched!!
I was just about to order these, both as a Twin Peaks fan and a Tarot collector, but shipping to Canada is $25. That’s outrageous!
Does anyone know if you can buy these after the campaign ended? I didn’t have the cash before it ended, but I would love a set!
Is there nowhere to buy these, now that the campaign ended? I feel heartsick that I missed this.
TRIED TO PURCHASE ON TWIN PEAKS SITE. SAYS ….CLOSED. please send me a link so i can purchase.-Paul Rainwater
Looks like I am late to the party, but I would buy a set in a heartbeat if they are still available somehow. If anyone has any info please let me know 🙂
Same comment as those above: late to the party, but wanting to get one for someone for Christmas. I’m supposing it’s not possible since you’re already up to your eyeballs in filling the Indiegogo orders, but let me know if there is any way to do this.
I also want to buy a copy even though it’s “closed.” Is there anywhere one can still buy these? I see a lot of people asking but no one answering. Obviously there is demand. If anyone knows where one can buy one please post it here.
Hey I ordered this deck back when the campaign was begun and have yet to receive my cards. Has anyone else actually seen them yet?
Would also be interested in purchasing a deck. Any chance they’ll ever be reproduced?
I’m the annoying person who has been emailing you trying to get a set of these cards.
I’m hoping persistence is key?
Have a great day!
I encourage you to run another set of these. I know many people in the collectors world that are interested. If you should have a place these are available please let me know. I truly would love a deck.
I’ve also cheerfully tugged Benjamin’s sleeve on these, and let him know that yes, I participated in the kickstarter, yes he has my money, and yes, I’m happy for him to sit on that until such time as he can actually give me the items in question.
I honestly can’t get over how terrific these illustrations are.
I’d definitely purchase a deck, if they are ever republished…
are these cards available to purchase? I would want them if they are for sale.
I need one!
