Hi everyone, I think (hope) it is okay to post this here... I just wanted to let you know about a collaborative Lenormand deck I completed with my teenage son. It's called the Aurum Lenormand. Together, we made a set of black and white illustrations, then added ink work. Finally (because "aurum" means "gold") we added gold detailing that will be printed as gold foil on the cards. It was a very special experience to be able to share a creative project with my talented son. I am super excited about this deck. I set the Kickstarter really low so it has been funded at this point, and now I'm hoping to work towards a couple of stretch goals. I've set the pledge levels really low, so I think the deck with magnetic closure box, 80-page little white book, and gold foil details and edges are a good deal. The deck contains an additional "Person" card for those who want a gender non-conforming option, which I thought was important. When I generate enough revenue from this deck to cover the costs of printing, I will be sending proceeds from the sale of the decks to the Marfan Foundation. My friend Amy is currently in hospital in an extended stay to monitor all of her complex, Marfan Syndrome-related issues. The child card in this deck is Amy's son Emmet. He had a 50/50 chance of being born with the disorder, and as it turns out, he too has Marfan Syndrome and has already had multiple life-saving surgeries. It is my hope to be able to pay it forward to this little understood set of connective tissue disorders, and I hope to be able to do that with this deck. Thank you so much for taking a look, and for your backing consideration. ~Melissa xx
InfernalTarot posted a topic in Promote YourselfHi folks. Shameless self promotion time. Sorry in advance, not very good at it! So here's the story. When I was a kid, growing up in Pendle, Lancashire, UK (where the witches came from!), my mum was a Tarot reader and a rare book collector. I grew up with mysticism and magic, it was part of everydaye life. One book I loved was called the Dictionnaire Infernal. Possibly the very first published encyclopedia of magic and the occult. Lots of people have said many things about the illustrations of demons and monsters in the book. They are pretty stunning... However, there are over 500 images in there. And tiny images at that. And when I was a kid, I noticed that some of them looked like the images on my mum's Tarot card. The first one I spotted was the Fool (let's face it a good place to start!), and slowly but surely, I spotted other seemingly hidden tarot images inside this 200 year old book. About 6 months ago, I started to clean up the images, colourise them and create a Tarot deck. I truly believe that some of these images were hidden in this book for somebody to find and use on such a deck. Some of the images are just far too close not to be Tarot images. It's been a great project, if very slow progress! But I'm now about a third of the way through. I'm going to launch a Kickstarter when the time is right. Not sure when that is, I guess when I see enough people signing up on the prelauch page to be informed. So if you like what you see and you'd be interested in getting a copy, then the best thing you can do is go here to build my confidence! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/infernal/the-infernal-tarot-a-200-year-old-secret-tarot-deck There will be lots of one-of-a-kind items and exclusives as well as earlybird discounts, so if you click the 'notify me' button, you shouldn't miss out! Thanks for reading, and any questions or comments, please let me know Erik
