Using a mix of Bowie’s different personas and character portrayals for the Major Arcana and featuring a Bowie era for each of the Minor, the deck was conceived and designed by Jessica DeFelice, an lifelong Bowie devotee.
The suit of Cups, symbolizing emotions, feature early Bowie, from his folk beginnings to Hunky Dory. Wands, symbolizing creativity, are represented by Ziggy Stardust and Aladdin Sane. The Thin White Duke is used for the suit of Pentacles, for material possessions, wealth, and belongings. The suit of Swords are the Bowie of our modern era up until his recent death (or return home, however you’d like to look at it).
