-------About of the Deck & Project-------
My name is Kayti Welsh and I am the Founder & Director of the global art collaboration - The 78 Tarot Project and the Captain of this journey we are about to embark on. My team & I return for the 4th year to Kickstarter to publish our 4th global art collaboration, 78 Tarot Astral - Tarot in Space. Each card displays the creator's name at the bottom, making it easy to discover your new favorite artists. This is both a functional Tarot deck and a mini gallery you can hold in your hand. (Or display in your favorite galaxy if you so please!)
78 Tarot Astral is a Limited Edition Deck - they are never reprinted, and due to contractual obligation, they legally can't ever be reprinted. We do it this way so our decks are really one of a kind collector's pieces that only a thousand or so people will get to own in this life. People who have all of our decks often tell us how fun it is to read with them all at once, especially when they draw the same artist for the same reading with different decks
Each Tarot card was carefully created by one of our 81 international artists spanning over 15 countries. We have many returning artists for this deck, including Meredith Dillman, Carla Morrow, Jasmine Becket-Griffith, Michael Banks, Larry Elmore, Simona Candini, Jessica Douglas, Leilani Joy and Selina Fenech. New artists have also joined the project, including Ravynne Phelan, Enamorte, Italia Ruotolo and Scott Holloway to name a few. A full list of our wonderful artists can be found at the end of this page.
We're privileged to work with fantastic artists on this project, some of whom bring their own experiences of creating art for Oracle and Tarot decks, even creating their own Tarot decks. It has been absolutely thrilling for us to work with some of our own Tarot heroes, such as Ravynne Phelan, who has created The Dreams of Gaia Tarot, as well as creating and illustrating several oracle decks, including the Messenger Oracle. Kiri Østergaard Leonard, who illustrated the Green Witch Tarot, Selina Fenech who illustrated the Wild Wisdom of the Faery Oracle, and the Oracle of the Mermaids. Tanya Bond, who created the Duality Deck, and our very own Joanna Nelson, who created the Monstarot deck
78 Tarot decks are fully functional and rich in symbolism. With each artist creating only one image for the deck, it allows them to really pour themselves into the classic history of their card – whilst putting a modern themed twist to it. Each of our decks have a theme to follow, which we find lends a cohesiveness in the storytelling from 78 different storytellers.
