More on Publication…

There are some great things going on regarding the publication of the Ra Horakhty Tarot — we have an estimated release date — September 15th, 2009.

The retail price is set at $24.99USD + shipping/handling. Each card measures 3.75″ x 5″ and each deck is printed on casino grade stock.

The release date is estimated. A lot of things can occur between the time a project enters the proofing stage and the time the final print is shipped to the distributors. I’ve been working like a madman to ensure this date is met, making minor adjustments on the cards, running proof after proof to ensure all the hebrew is correct and that the CMYK color codes from the files match the printers specifications, and a whole bunch of other stuff. I’ve also requested a batch of decks from the first run to be set aside for signatures — each deck from this batch will be signed by the artist (that would be me.) These signed decks are only available pre-sale on the website

Three of the trump cards have been repainted for the release. After 14 years of sitting in a storage box the colors faded a bit. Most of the cards had some fading. It was simple enough to digitally tweak them, but three trumps just didn’t “sing” the way a piece of artwork should.

I’m not supposed to drop any hints on upcoming stuff, but I’m way too excited not to make some mention of things that are in the works. First, there is something really special about this particular tarot deck that to my knowledge has never been done before with a published Tarot deck. The news will break on the website sometime next week. Second, there will be a Limited Edition Collector’s Release. There is no release date yet for the Collector’s Edition, but it will be VERY special. There is lot of legal stuff regarding Limited Editions to protect you, the Collectors, by ensuring that the limited edition is, indeed, limited. At this point it looks like the Collector’s Edition will be limited to 100 signed and numbered units.

I’m getting ready to invoke a couple angels of healing to help out with the carpal tunnel syndrome that may occur from signing all those decks, so take advantage of the pre-sales at the website. All pre-sales, whether signed or not, are available at 10% below retail. ($22.50USD +shipping/handling)
