I am lucky to be the owner of the super rare and spectacular Collective Tarot. It's designed by a group of 25 artists, including comics phenom Annie Murphy, whose work can currently be seen in my Sigils & Signs show. It also has some truly inspired variations on some of the cards (e.g. "The Code" and "Intermission") and has suits of bottles, feathers, bones, and keys instead of the usual cups, wands, pentacles, swords.

What is the Collective Tarot?
The Collective Tarot is a collaborative publishing project/magical art-spell consisting of: 5 core collective members; 25 contributing artists/co-collaborators; 78 full-color cards; a 275-page accompanying booklet; hundreds of supporters, fans, and Collective Tarot magic-makers.
At the onset of this project in 2007, we had no idea how big it would get, nor how long we'd be at it. We self-published a print-run of 500 in 2008 (printed by Eberhardt Press) and quickly sold out through word of mouth only. Then in 2010, Eberhardt Press published a second round of 750 copies (printed at Eberhardt Press and Brown Printing in Portland, OR).
Now, back by popular demand, we bring you the Collective Tarot 2012. Self-published by the Tarot Collective, funded by our wonderful community, printed at always-solid Brown Printing in Portland, this time around we are shooting for a print run of 2000. We are trying to pre-sell at least 666 decks in order to fund the printing of this project at a whopping $20,000.
We plan to keep the price of decks as low as possible at $25. Support your local witch/artist/publishers!! Spread the word!
Yes, now you, too, can own this special deck, as it's going into its 3rd printing. All you have to do is donate to their Kickstarter, which is going until June 27th and is already almost fully funded.
