For years I was a street reader in Omaha (now I read all over the place). I have been reading cards since 1987. In the fall of 2012, after looking for years for my "dream deck", I gave up & decided to try to make one myself.
I had a lot of things I wanted in a deck. I wanted a useable, vintage deck that looked weathered, like it had been handed down for generations. I wanted an interesting old looking back, illustrated pips, and I wanted everything in English, and I didn't want it to look like it was all dropped into a template. And so, after a lot of work, I came up with the Deck of the Bastard - a compilation of several old decks that I put together in such a way as to make one contiguous looking set.
I was really happy with the Deck of the Bastard, & I thought perhaps other readers might be interested in it as well, & so I put them up for sale on various sites, and took some to local shops.
Soon I started getting requests - some people wanted keywords on their decks, some people wanted Lenormands, custom backs, different decks, etc.
I love doing this sort of thing so I just kept rolling with it & making more things.
I'm always working on a new deck, so I hope you will check back & sign up for my mailing list if you're not already on it - I send out special sales coupon codes & announce new items when I finish them.
I deeply appreciate all the support I have gotten from readers all over the world - it's most encouraging.
