Featured deck: The 9th Dimension Tarot by St. Croix, illustrated by Katherine Yurica. This out-of-print 1971 deck is actually a later version of the 1969 Mont-Saint-Johns Astral Tarot deck, which featured Yurica's illustrations in black and white only. This deck uses abstracted human figures in the Major Arcana and court cards, and expressive pip cards for the rest of the Minor Arcana.
