For the time being, we are working on the court cards, starting with the queens... and the first of them is the Queen of Cups, which is ready and will be posted soon. Next in line is the Queen of Wands.

We would like to thank everyone new and old to this blog for the Eklektikos Tarot, for following its progress and all the encouraging and inspiring comments.
Many people have asked us, how long will it take for it to be complete and published? Well in all honesty, we don't know yet, but we are working hard on it, to finish it as soon as possible without compromising its quality.

Majors done

After a long pause, I could start redoing the cards, and they are finally done...just have to scan them. Hopefully will be able to post them tomorrow.
On to minors now :)

Monday, 14 June 2010


We are in the process of moving and settling in to another country, so the progress of the deck has been almost none, but as soon as we are ready, we will be posting the final changes to the majors and then continue with the minors.

Thanks once more for your interest and kind words.

The 3 majors that will change

These are working ideas for the cards, they will be redone as we want to add certain elements and slightly change composition.
Mother Earth will stay pretty much the same, except for some addition of animals and plants.
For the Judgement, will "zoom in" focusing more on the small details but keeping the main compositional ideas.
The Magician's figure will be reduced in size so it doesn't take over the card and allows other elements to be seen better; for example, the eclipse will be moved to a more visible position. There will be also minor compositional changes.

We thank you for all the support and comments the deck has received so far, this has been very encouraging and we hope you follow the progress of the rest of the cards.
