About

The Anima Mundi tarot deck

 Hi, my name is Megan! I've been illustrating professionally for about five years, and I create artwork inspired by nature, history and fantasy. Ever since childhood I've been deeply fascinated with the natural world, which is the inspiration behind this tarot deck.

You can check out the rest of my work at www.thecreepingmoon.com :)

“Anima Mundi” is a Latin term which translates to “the world's soul.” Originally coined by Plato, it is the belief that all living things on this planet are connected as a single spiritual entity. Inspired by medieval iconography and Renaissance art, this deck is a tribute to the incredible biodiversity of this planet. 

Each card design is hand painted with love, with acrylic paints on a small tarot-sized piece of canvas board, here in my studio! 

How this works: Kickstarter is a crowdfunding platform, which I am using to take pre-orders for the deck! It is all or nothing, which means that the $4,000 goal must be met in order for the project to proceed. If the goal is not met, backers will not get charged money, but if it is, then I can go on and get the deck printed. Yay! 

Funding: The aim of this campaign is to raise $4,000, which is enough to produce 500 decks, as well as the enamel pins and print sets. The bulk of the money will be going towards manufacturing, with the rest going towards marketing, shipping, Kickstarter fees, etc. 

Timeline: If our funding goal is reached, I will place the order for the deck right after the campaign ends. I already have manufacturers lined up and all of the artwork will be ready to print by the time the campaign is over.  Following this timeline, the deck + other rewards will be anticipated to ship sometime in December. While I am hoping that your rewards will get to you in time for Christmas, I unfortunately can't make any promises!

Risks and challenges

I've been selling my art & products online since 2012, so I have a lot of experience designing, manufacturing, and shipping out my creations to people all around the world! This is, however, my very first Kickstarter project and my very first time making a deck of cards. Possible issues include delays in production, packages damaged/going missing, customs fees, etc. I will work hard to communicate any delays, and work with anyone experiencing problems with their order. All international backers are responsible for customs charges, and all packages will be marked as merchandise.
