Antiquarian Tarot's Guidebook is now available as an eBook! It's in my Etsy shop. Obtainable via immediate digital download of the following two file types.
.epub (EPUB files can be opened in most eBook readers, including the B&N Nook, Kobo eReader, and Apple's iBooks app.)
.mobi (MOBI files can be read by eBook readers like the Amazon Kindle and many smartphones that support that format.)
The Antiquarian Tarot and Companion Guidebook are available again. They were sold out for just a short while. I have a new case, which now has a red inner-lining. The red color represents the root chakra and helps to ground & protect the cards when they are kept inside the case.
Autumnal Equinox blessings (Spring to you in the Southern Hemi-)! I posted a new video going over the Antiquarian Tarot Companion Guidebook in more detail. I also reveal the new Lovers card and the other minor changes that I made to the deck.
The deck and book go on sale Monday, September 26th! Subscribe to my notification list, if you're not already, and I will send an email when they go live.
Antiquarian Tarot's books arrived yesterday and I am excited to launch them on Sept. 26th. I'm preparing my website (and also Etsy) to sell the books and the tarot decks. Here are the details for shipping domestically (USA) and internationally.
Domestic shipping within the USA: I will ship the deck OR book via Priority Mail in a Small Flat Rate box. Priority Shipping is my preferred method because it is insured and has tracking information, plus I can print labels and ship from home. This means faster shipments and turnaround. If you order the book alone, I do offer shipping via Media Mail.
Antiquarian Tarot book proof is here! The printed proof is in my hands. I'm going through it and working with the printer to make sure it is exactly how I want it.
Look for the Antiquarian Tarot Companion Guidebook at the end of the month. I'm planning to release it on September 25 along with the release of the 2nd edition of the Antiquarian Tarot deck.
I'm practically finished! The book layout is complete and the book cover's design is done. I'm just waiting to hear back from my editor who is doing a final pass-through for me. It looks like the book will be 385 pages. It will include all the images from the deck, as well as information about the cards and my artwork.
Here are the Table of Contents to give you an idea of what to expect from my guidebook.
Exciting news! The Antiquarian Tarot Companion Guidebook is almost finished. I have an editor doing another pass through it before I send it to the book printer. Also, the last details of the book cover are coming together.
I am feeling really close to completion. It is looking like an early September release at the latest. The Antiquarian Tarot deck will be re-released with the book.
Thanks for your patience and support!
Here's a video I shot showing all of the cards last year, which I never posted. The soundtrack has music by Dream Lodge, David's and my band project. The tracks, High Desert Star and The Lodge, are recent releases from our vinyl record EP (six tracks), which will be released this Saturday. The two tracks are available to download now. You can have the vinyl record mailed to you after the official release date, August 1st, 2015. There is a digital download card that comes with each record. You may order it here if you'd like a copy. Thanks for your support!
Sagittarius Full Moon blessings! It has been a while since I posted, but I wanted to share an update about the progress of the Antiquarian Tarot Companion Manual. It is still in the works! I'm more than halfway through now. I never imagined it would take this long to write, but this is my first book and I'm slowly making my way through each card's entry.
I hope you are enjoying the deck so far! I think the companion manual will help to shed some light about some of my design choices.
