About

****Note on the rewards packages - the $40 package was added after all the other ones to allow for people to easily get two decks. The packages that start at $50 and up all say "plus all of the above" but they don't include the $40 one. Kickstarter wouldn't allow me to edit any package that had already been backed, so this is me clarifying.****

The Darkana Tarot Deck combines a modern grunge style with non-traditional tarot symbolism. Every image is personally designed by me, the creator of the Inappropriate Tarot Readings phenomenon; this deck is everything I want to convey. I know I set the goal at $2000, but I'd really love to get as many of these out to folks as possible, so I'm hoping to actually do around $10,000. Please don't hesitate to share the link to this. :)

Most decks end up being representations of the Rider-Waite deck, which doesn't offer a lot in the way of new, groundbreaking material out there. It is my opinion that the best tarot decks challenge current views and inspire. One way I seek to do that is by using more modern symbolism with clever artistic techniques, all packaged into a current style that's both rich in context and appealing.

***Shipping is figured in to the prices, but if you're international and you want to add a couple extra dollars to offset the cost, that is optional.***

I believe my deck will do just that. Here are some sample images:

The Knight of Pentacles

The Two of Swords

The Star

The Fool

Those who pledge more than $10 will get this limited edition Badass card, number 22 in the deck. The only way to get this card is here. It will not be offered after this promotion, so get on it!

What the funds will be used for:

I'm going to be self-publishing this deck, as it gives me greater creative control over the process and allows me to get this product out there much faster. The funds will be used to manufacture the decks and all limited edition materials.
