Introducing the Flowerdew deck.

It is called the flowerdew deck because everyone that I've asked wanted it named thus.

This isn't the James deck, and if anything I've tried to reign my spirit/ego in with the idea of letting yous run wild.

The focus is on traditional french and italian decks predating the Ryder Waite, but with hints of modernity including Waite.

Reconciling medieval magic with the here and now.

Faith to the original system is tantamount to me.

Where tradition conflicts with modernity, including idealism, the traditional wins.

There are also elements that acknowledge the gaming nature of cards, sacred does not mean unwilling to play.

These are not currently publicly available, please get in touch if you want to know more.

The clear and striking art style is intended to echoe woodcut and possibly early c20th graphic design.

You can see a prototype deck here.

Future plans: The learner's deck with illustrated pip cards?

Also, I'm up for experiments. Again this is meant to be about the Tarot, and not me.

I would truly love YOUR opinions about this.
