That Temperance card is really interesting. I had to look twice.

The world card is pleasing as well.

I've said it before and I'll say it again - I'm really looking forward to this one!

I like the World card; it reminds me of the Council of Grandmothers:

I said on a different thread, the courts in this deck are the best I have seen anywhere. You just know the energy, personality, suit etc from the image in an instant.

Keep sending thoughts for Poppy - unbelievably she still has not had a publisher take it up. This deck needs to see the light of day. IMO it is better than many that are being published through publishers at the moment.

I agree (about the court cards and all the other compliments)! The cards are clearly designed not just by a real artist, but by someone who knows how to use a deck with skill. It's so unusual! I'm so tired of all these decks with nice art that have little relation to the traditional divinatory meanings - nice to look at, impossible, or at best inefficient to read with. And I am especially interested in modern imagery that includes urban elements and environments that are not just a style choice. How can this not find a publisher? Llewellyn, Schiffer, US Games - I don't think any of them have decks as good as this out recently or on the way. I'm not dissing the other decks for fun or aesthetic - I'm just talking about decks where the art really thoughtfully portrays the interpretation of the card.

Well said.... this is a genuine reading deck of terrific substance. And it is a modern day deck - something we see so little of in the tarot world. I know Schiffer turned it down, even though I had contacted them and pleaded with them to give it due attention.

How many people contacting a publisher does it take for them to actually give serious consideration I wonder. This has so much going for it, and it will be more than a shame if a publisher looks past it and offers another deck that is pretty but not a deck that has potential to be a real workhorse of a reading deck.

This is a brilliant deck. It is the first non TdM that I have wanted in a long time, but I know I will be buying this one.

Anyone know a deck publisher Gregory? That they could point at the website?

The other option is Gamecrafter - and I daresay Lynryd (Blue Fusion) would be happy to give some advice on that one if asked.

If publishing equals borders ... I actually hope it ends up being self-published, sans borders with the artist having some control over the final look and feel.
