The Prisma Visions Tarot deck will be available for purchase through www.prismavisionstarot.com after the campaign ends!

The Prisma Visions Tarot is a timeless deck that takes cues from impressionistic surreal styles of the past, enchanting imagery of the present and clairvoyant visions of the future.

This deck is a unique and whimsical play on the classic tarot deck and features hand-drawn highly detailed cards. Despite the small frame of the cards, each was executed on such a large scale that the cards have developed into individual works of art. The Prisma Visions Tarot deck combines both borderless and bordered cards into one cohesive and enchanting work of art. The Major Arcana cards are with borders, which highlight the importance and weight of of each. The Minor Arcana cards are borderless and because of their panoramic story like design the flow beautifully together. All 79 cards in the deck share the same back.

Funding for this project would provide a means to print the full 79 card Prisma Visions Tarot and also help to produce uniquely beautiful packaging and an amazing 100 page guidebook, all at an affordable cost without impacting the quality of production.

Last year, with the success of the Visions Project Kickstarter thanks to hundreds of backers, we raised almost $25,000 which helped in producing the Light Visions Tarot deck (the predecessor to the Prisma Visions Tarot) as well as a full collection of 23 limited edition art prints. The Light Visions tarot was a limited edition run of 500 decks and has since sold out. With this kickstarter, I hope to raise the funds to produce the Prisma Visions Tarot, an unlimited run that is more affordable and available to everyone. 

How affordable?

The Prisma Visions tarot, including the 100 page guidebook in the two piece box, will only cost $45 plus shipping and handling. But, as a backer to this project you will be getting the deck with FREE shipping (in the U.S). 

The second part of the deck, the minor arcana, is in progress and is estimated for completion in November. The Minor Arcana is extremely special in that each "suit" (wands, pentacles, swords and cups) has been created as a continuous narrative. When the 14 cards are lined up together the images form a beautiful panorama. That’s loooooooong.. we’re talking almost 4 feet! When you get your deck you can try it out at home!

 Each suit of the minor arcana is created as one continuous image which allows the cards to flow together beautifully. Below you will find a short process video on creating "The Ballad of Chalices"

So, What’s in it for you? That’s a good question. A lot actually.

REWARDS!

This is probably why you’re here. If you pre-order the deck through kickstarter, you’re not only getting one of the First Edition, but it's coming with free shipping (for U.S. orders)! Yeah, it’s just that great. Not into tarot at all but you still managed to read this far? Cool, that’s totally fine - check out the awesome print options in the next section!

Some specs on the deckThe Prisma Visions tarot is a 79 card deck (with one "mystery" card) comprised of the classic major and minor arcana. The deck is housed in a beautiful sturdy two piece box along with a comprehensive 100 page guidebook written by Katherine Tombs, detailing the imagery and meanings behind each card. 

2. The Limited Edition Art Prints:

Within the Prisma Visions tarot are four stories that depict the journey of wands, chalices, swords and pentacles. Each narrative is 6" x 36" and is hand signed in a 1/2" white border and numbered in a limited edition. These prints of the highest quality and printed on archival paper with acid free inks.

Each panorama is available for pledging $25 towards the project. All four are available as a matching set for $100. 

There is a Reward Level for a combination of one print paired with the Prisma Visions Tarot for $80, but because the items must ship separately there is an added $10 into the reward amount to cover shipping.

If you have any questions or comments please feel free to ask them in the comments section. You can also visit the FAQ on the Prisma Visions Website for further information

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Without you this wouldn't be possible, really. Make sure you share the campaign with your friends and lovers, and if you have any questions that weren't answered feel free to leave a comment!

A few things to note: Everything pictured, as well as in the video, is a work in progress. These designs are meant to give you an idea of what the final deck will look like. As the project progresses, there are bound to be small changes and improvements. 

The Prisma Visions Tarot will not ship until December. It is my hope that all orders will arrive in time for the holidays, but nothing can be guaranteed.

Risks and challenges

I'm racing the holidays again, as if I didn't learn my lesson the last time. There are a lot of factors that go into the creation of a deck, along with shipping errors and distances. There will be bumps in the road, but I will smooth them whenever possible, don't you worry!
