To All Believers. This phrase was on the dedication page of the 1914 fairy tale, The Book of Friendly Giants, by Eunice Fuller, illustrated by Pamela Colman Smith (PCS of the RWS Tarot). I first saw it on one of the title cards from the Hanson-Roberts Tarot. (See images below.)
It reminds me to be open to the mystery, magic, and all the little miracles in life.
This inspired me to add the sweet phrase to the Magical Child Oracle title card. There is a touch of "Pixie" (PCS) in this deck, including a card using one of her drawings.
That is the magic of art. When there is pollen enough to inspire cross-pollination across a hundred years. 🌻
This deck is full of cross-pollination, really all of my work as a collagist is, using antique photos and illustrations from known and unknown artists and authors—our collective global ancestors. Many of whom, to me, are divine Muses.
Magical Child Oracle pre-orders are still open. I plan to order the decks, bags, and books on Oct 31st. I do not plan much of an overrun, so if you are interested in this set, please reserve your copy today. Thank you so much for supporting this lil deck creation!
