I grew up watching Sailor Moon as a child and teenager and was always enamoured by the great individual strengths of the characters and the journey of Usagi Tsukino. Growing up I also became attracted to the Tarot, especially the over aching archetypes of the Major Arcana which can repeatedly be found in various religions, cultures and psychological theories. I wanted to link all these things together by creating a special Sailor Moon-themed Tarot. This led to the creation to the Moon Crystal Tarot (Major Arcana) which was successfully funded in January 2018 via Kickstarter. The overwhelming response pushed me to start working on the rest of the cards. Attributing characters to card meaning and illustrating 56 more cards was by no means an easy feat, but I am proud to say that after a year's worth of work (and some figure drawing assistance from SenshiStock) I can finally bring you the full Moon Crystal Tarot.
The cards will be professionally printed in Italy on 330gsm triplex Casino quality board which is easy to shuffle and resistant to wear. The cards will be varnished for extra durability.
The pack features 78 cards measuring 65x115cm and will come in a full colour cardboard box with gold foil detailing. Package upgrades are also available and will be hand screen printed by myself in my Berlin workshop.
First off, I would like to thank you all for your stupendous support! If it wasn't for all of you who believed in this project, we wouldn't be where we are today! <3 After discussing the possibility with my printer, I am glad to be able to offer a separate tier that will allow you to purchase JUST the Minor Arcana BUT will come with a larger box to fit your whole deck! As you will notice, the Minor option is only available as a deck without add-ons. I did this to avoid excessive tiers. Please write to me if you wish to add any of the additional items and add the following to your pledge: €5 for the mirror, pouch or scarf and €10 for the box with journal!
*Please note that the Major Only option will only be available as part of the Kickstarter campaign using the original border and borderless cards which will not be printed again*
The redesigned tarot deck features a new border which allows the images to breathe more.
All additional items (as seen in the pictures below), will be hand screen printed in my Berlin studio creating a glitter hologram effect with a pastel split fountain (rainbow/ombre print) using water based inks.
Super Moon Level: Deck + Scarf
Eternal Moon Level: Deck + Pouch
