The cards are printed on quality, archival stock (Mastergloss Artboard, 420 gsm) and measure 6"x 4" or 10cm x 15cm. A velvet drawstring bag is supplied.

 

Accompanying the cards is a booklet which provides a verse of prose to enhance the meaning of each card.

 

Each limited edition deck is a unique collectable work of art, made by the artist's own hands. 

 

These cards are not digital reproductions of hand painted cards in an edition of 300 or so decks.

 

The Printing Process

Each lino block has been carved with steel gouges to produce the raised print surface that is inked with a rubber roller and printed under pressure by hand to produce the image on the card.

This technique limits the amount of intricate detail that one can attain and one must forgo the illusions that artists often use to draw the viewer in. Therefore the artist must rely on the power of the pure graphic to speak for the image.
 
The resulting image’s very simplicity is it's source of power.
