Creator and artist Alan Robert and Ghouliana return with another entry in the best-selling The Beauty of Horror franchise. Featuring 78 pieces of original card art, all done by the author of anguish, Alan Robert, The Beauty of Horror Tarot set invites you to get a glimpse into your future, or even color the destiny that you divine! Packed with the same meticulously crafted details, and devilishly dark humor as the books, The Beauty of Horror Tarot sets are another perfectly hair-raising addition for any horror fan’s collection.

The Beauty of Horror Tarot sets come in two terrifyingly tasty flavors: Fear Your Future and Color Your Destiny. Both sets contain 22 major and 56 minor arcana cards, all illustrated by Alan Robert. Fear Your Future is a more traditional tarot set featuring fully-colored standard sized tarot cards. While Color Your Destiny has black and white oversized tarot cards that are all uncoated and ready to color! Check out the pledges below to get more details!

Each Monday for 1 year, we’ll send you an email with a random tarot card from the Fear Your Future set. Along with the digital card, we’ll give you a short blurb about what that card means and insight from Alan about what inspired his art for the card.

Tarot is a deck of cards divided into 2 sets, Major and Minor Arcana. The art of Tarot reading is a skill pretty quickly learned, but takes years to finesse. while some use Tarot decks for recreational fun, others believe that the cards can actually give you insight to some of the concerns or questions you have about your future.

When using tarot cards to determine what your future may hold, which cards come out, and the direction they are facing indicate what type of events will occur. This is where understanding the multiple layers of meaning each card can have becomes necessary for the fortune teller. Luckily for you, each physical reward in this campaign comes with a guidebook to help you start reading futures as soon as you receive your rewards!

Risks and challenges

IDW Games is a division of IDW Publishing. As a whole, IDW has 20 years in the industry publishing comics, books, board and card games. IDW Games has successfully Kickstarted 9 campaigns and has already fulfilled 8 of those campaigns. Our only outstanding campaign is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures, which is estimated to deliver in December.

While IDW has published every book in The Beauty of Horror catalog, any product that is designed to be colored by the end user posses a few additional quality checks than an average printed product. We need time to check the quality of the uncoated paper and make sure the stock is resistant to wear and tear, while also being easily colored. Since this is the first color-it-yourself card deck we've made, there's a chance that the Q.A. process may take longer than we're currently estimating. However, our long history with publishing and games manufacturing leave us confident that we will delivery the product no matter what Q.A. hurdles we have to jump along the way.
