About

This is my third tarot deck, taken from the beautiful artwork of Pamela Colman Smith (famously nicknamed “Pixie”) the artist behind the most celebrated tarot ever, the Rider-Waite-Smith deck. Starting from her art, I have focussed in on the marvelous faces and iconic figures she created. Unlike the RWS, or most decks, the minor cards here do not have specific numbers of pip symbols, giving us an alternative way of looking at something well worth seeing up close. 

Here are some sample cards, with the originals from Pamela Colman Smith:

There are two parts to the First Limited Edition:  450 Numbered decks, and 50 Numbered and Signed decks.

The artwork is now complete, and may be viewed at the The Tarot of Pixie's People and other pages found on my website under My Tarot Art

(You may also view my other two decks there, The Pixie Tarot and The Stone Marseilles Tarot.)

I have an estimate from the same printer I used to produce my last project, and we plan 500 decks, 350gsm stock, 70x120mm, with black holographic foil edges.

Risks and challenges

It is always a challenge to produce a tangible product, but now that I have completed a similar successful project I know some of the pitfalls. I will use the same printer, and together we have learned a great deal about how to produce my Photoshop colors. I am confident I can solve whatever new problems might arise this second time around!
