Hidden Dreams Tarot
A Synthesis of Symbolism and Lore
The Hidden Dreams Tarot was designed with the intention of having the imagery speak the symbolism and meaning in a more obvious, modern way. In the process, I discovered a lot of clear associations with things outside of Tarot. Egyptian, Hebrew, Celtic, Nordic, and Greek mythology all began to factor in, along with numerology, astrology, and colours. Over the course of a year, I took notes on all of these associations, and clarified their mappings. Most tarot decks dig deep into a single lore. The Hidden Dreams Tarot synthesizes them all.
In truth, I don't consider myself any kind of expert, and creating these cards was largely a journey of learning, and discovery.
Risks and challenges
The cards themselves and the guidebook are ready to print - I have chosen the printers I'll be using - I've worked with them before, and I'm confident in the quality they can produce.
My main concern, to be honest, is probably shipping. It's so expensive! I believe I've factored in the cost, and balanced the reward tiers in order to at least break even if I hit my goal. In any case, I'll be able to get everything printed and shipped out, which is the main thing :)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
