Bonestone and Earthflesh Tarot

Ana Tourian's artwork truly is stunning. I'm also waiting for her Abyss Tarot- click on the "Major Arcana" and "Minor Arcana" tabs to see the cards; only the Cups are done so far of the minors. I think she's going to refocus on it later this year when the Bonestone cards are done, which I believe they're getting close to.

 

That's a beautiful black and white Tarot!

Oh my goddess! That card has me practically hyperventilating, i love it THAT much!!!

 

i do understand its take on the 4 of Pentacles, but IMHO it would have also made a wonderous Death card, symbolically....as "When a door closes [ending] a window opens...

It is being self-published by Avalon Cameron and Ana Tourian. Avalon is taking Pre-orders through her Etsy Shop. The deck release deck is December 2018.. From my understanding The deck still has a few more cards to be completed..Ana Tourian is the artist.

That's why in that very post, I included your username in an @ mention to give you a heads up. I would have appreciated it more if you advised me that it might be better if I informed affected thread-starters through PMs next time, as I consider suggestions like these necessary to improve the execution of my moderational duties.

 

However, there is no place here for name-calling and the use of pejoratives as per the very first item in our Forum Rules. This courtesy is extended not only to the mods/admins but to all the members here, regardless of level. Consider this a warning.

I was teasing. I won’t do it again.

All ? They are all done now ?

 

I should have said, all the cards that were done when the video was made. The video is missing a few cards. HOWEVER, I did see last night from Ana that ALL the art is officially done as of yesterday! And I know Avalon is working on the book.

I just saw in Avalon's Facebook group that there are less than 70 of these decks left, still available for pre-order at her Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/listing/541885143/pre-order-bonestone-earthflesh-tarot. So if you have been holding off it might be time to act soon. The decks are planned to ship in December, so we're only a few months away now. I finally pre-ordered mine!

That four of pentacles is gorgeous! I preordered this on the first round as I follow Avalon on YouTube but have lost track of due dates and everything. Is it still December?

After doing Avalons Course on tarot summer school where she uses this deck in every lesson, I myself preordered it. I got to feel some of it’s potential in the areas of witchcraft and ritual which was what swayed me. I rarely buy decks anymore unless they have something extra that feels truly valuable to me.

Can you elaborate a bit on this?

 

I go back and forth on this deck so much that may be the tipping point for me.

 

Hoping some of what you are referring to will go into the book.

Well her course was about using the tarot for ‘witch weaving’ and she demonstrated different types of spells and rituals she does (using tarot). I do this kind of practice myself and have not found a deck that feels 100% suitable, but I resonated with the imagery in this deck and how it takes into account the layers and potentials of witchcraft in tarot. I can’t go into detail about the specific examples from her course out of respect for Avalon and her work. I hope she does talk about this aspect of her deck in the book but I’m not sure she will. She might have decided to have that as an exclusive thing in her courses and on her patreon page.. if it’s an important factor for you then maybe it would be a good idea to ask her what will be addressed in the guidebook? I’m sure she’d be happy to tell you

Thank you- you answered perfectly. And appreciate not going into details as I agree that would not be fair to the course instructors and such.

 

But I have worked with weaving using the images- and so far the closest deck I have found that really has the imagery to support that is the Arto. Knowing that this deck holds that depth for it to be used in such a manner is what is more important to me- so even if the book doesn't cover it per se- that alone may be enough.

 

Now- in person is always different than on screen, but something tells me this is a deck I could potentially use. So again, my gratitude on taking the time to respond!

I'm glad that I could be of help. I would even go as far as saying that this deck is very much designed for this type of work. It feels like an extension of Avalon herself and her practice is just such a vital part of her that there is no way that it would not also be visible in her cards. And I don't feel that she has done anything to try and hide this aspect of the deck. It will be visible for anyone who takes a closer look. She wants you to connect with the archetypes and to weave them into your craft. To see them as real, tangible forces and to make them come alive for you.
