New printing of Book M with color inserts!

If you have been procrastinating and haven’t yet bought Book M: Liber Mundi, well, procrastinating paid off.

Hail unto thee, who art Ahathor in thy beauty

This has also been posted as update #14 on the Kickstarter for backers of the Colores Arcus edition, so forgive me if you are a backer and have seen it there. But often those updates go into spam folders (at least they do for me) so I thought I’d post it here. Here in the […]

Rosetta redux: the Papyrus edition

My first tarot deck, before Tabula Mundi, was called the Rosetta Tarot and was published in November 2011.
