The Field Tarot is intended to act as an intuitive tool to help navigate through life, relationships, meditation, and our inner and outward journeys. Inspired by colorful, feminine, botanical, and otherworldly dreamscapes, The Field Tarot connects art and spirituality with the ancient tradition of tarot reading.
It is a fully illustrated, 78-card tarot deck based primarily off of the Rider-Waite System, with some influence from other systems and decks. It is designed as an easy-to-read tool, suitable for both beginners and seasoned tarot readers.
What is most unique to The Field Tarot cards are the one-word descriptors shown on each card, meant to help the reader interpret them more intuitively without necessarily opening up the guidebook.
Each card was designed and illustrated by deck creator Hannah Elizabeth Fofana. This is her first tarot deck (perhaps not her last) and was inspired organically through her long history of love for both tarot and design.
The deck is made up of 22 Major Arcana Cards and 56 Minor Arcana Cards.
The deck will come in an easy-open 2-piece keepsake box made from a sturdy stock with a silky satin finish. A pocket guidebook (2.75" x 4.75") will be included with every deck and will provide a description for each of the 78 cards in the deck, a few traditional tarot card spreads and breakdowns, and one spread unique to The Field Tarot deck. The cards will be printed on 400 gsm art paper, with a matte lamination finish, giving them a high quality, soft, and sturdy feel.
This reward will include a digital image that you can use as your mobile background. You will be contacted when they are ready, and you'll have the ability to chose from one of the cards shown below.
This limited reward will get you a personalized 3-card reading from the deck creator. Tarot readings will be completed in the order in which they are received, and you will be contacted by March. Each reading will include a 2-page PDF with descriptions and a personalized interpretation.
In order to make this deck a reality, The Field Tarot needs your help funding the upfront costs. The funds collected from this Kickstarter campaign will go towards the following:
- Printing, production, and freight costs for 500 box sets
- Shipping materials and postage costs for individual orders
As a reward for your generous pledges, you'll not only be contributing to bringing The Field Tarot to life, you will be getting access to the limited number of decks produced in the first run.
Risks and challenges
FAILING TO REACH KICKSTARTER GOAL
If the goal is not reached, no funding will be received. This is a very real potential risk, so share this campaign with your friends to spread the word! If this should happen, other ways of funding will need to be researched and explored. Backers will be updated accordingly.
MEETING TIMELINE EXPECTATIONS
The box sets are estimated to be ready and shipped out by Spring of 2019. Though this is a fairly generous timeline provided that the funding goal is reached, there are other variables to making sure this happens. These include finalizing the cards and guidebook, production and printing time, vendor shipping, and personally packing and shipping out each individual deck. If pledges EXCEED the expectation, this could prove to be more difficult, but backers will be updated accordingly.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
