This morning a white truck pulled up next to our house. Our decks have arrived!
The order was for “curb side delivery,” meaning the truckers were only obligated to drop those boxes on those wooden pallets (which apparently we had to pay for) off literally “curb side.” But they were so sweet and moved each pallet into our garage for us!
And now we begin the laborious process of unpacking from those pallets and moving those boxes inside. We don’t want to leave them in the garage, so today and tomorrow, we are literally doing heavy lifting to get what you see there into the house, one box at a time. Eeps. I better have toned arms after this!
Also, time to prep the assembly line!
Back in 2018 I shared a video of the first time I unboxed my First Edition Spirit Keeper’s Tarot. I thought it’d be fun to share me looking through the Revelation Edition for the first time.
You know what’s kind of hilarious? I don’t have a video of a “first time unboxing” my “middle child” Vitruvian Edition. My sister C., the middle child in our family, would be exclaiming right now, “I so resonate with your second deck!”
I’m really appreciating how well the detailing in the seamless wallpaper, or background, on the box came out.
And for anyone wondering, it is not too late to order your copy of the SKT Revelation. Visit here for more info. However, if you’re ordering now, understand that estimated delivery for you won’t be until late December, 2021.
You’re going to be experiencing a light and muted color palette. It came out lighter than the samples we received. And yet, it turns out that the subtle coloring works with the whole “spirit keeper” concept.
I have not added any filters to these photographs. This is how the card images photograph, as-is, in natural sunlight.
The lightness of the coloring was unanticipated, but worked out to better fulfill the deck’s purpose. The lighter palette gives the artwork this ethereal, beautiful and ghostly essence. It’s almost supernatural, like what you’re seeing are but specters from what exists beyond the veil. The images express dreamscapes.
Like the black and white First Edition and the sepia-toned Vitruvian, the Revelation decks will come with a Certificate of Authenticity, numbered and hand-autographed by me.
And now the crazy times begin.
