I became enamored with the Tarot in my late teens and have had a small collection of decks ever since.  Around the same time as I was discovering the Tarot, I stumbled across the fiction H. P. Lovecraft, and remain a devoted fan to this day.   The Tarot of Azathoth is Lovecraftian in the sense that it is a deck as I imagine might exist in Lovecraft’s universe, perhaps in the collection of the mad wizard Whateley or used by the witch, Keziah Mason in her magical workings.  The original drawings are pen and ink on Bristol board.

I look forward to your comments - thanks.

I'd love to get one, but you only seem to ship to the USA? or is there a possibility to sell to Belgium also?

Justice poised between night and day--that's a new one for sure, very striking.

Beautiful and amazing. The cards won't have that horrid copyright notice on the faces I hope...

Any ideas about cost yet?

Thanks so much for your interest, I’m very humbled.  I’ll be adding electronic payment methods to the site, prior the arrival of the cards, I’ll see if it’s possible to set it up for international orders.  I’m new to all this, so please forgive my ignorance in such things.  If for any reason it can’t be done, I’d still be more than happy to ship overseas, I’m sure something could be worked out by mail.   The Cards should be in stock around mid November, so let me look into it and see what my options are.

No; no copyright notices anywhere on the final product.  I'll post pictures of the cards and box as soon as I receive them.  The price will be 29 +5.35 for shipping in the US.

Thanks, Your eye’s are among the first to see anything, as I’ve keep it under wraps, even from family, until I published the website over this last weekend.

I like this deck a lot, original and very nicely executed, I'd like a copy too. I live in Canada, but I am moving overseas by the end of October. Any chance the deck will be ready before that date? Thanks!

rylla,
I've checked out PayPal and will have Nemo's Locker set up to handle international orders within a few weeks. My Printer has given me a delivery window between October 28th and November 2nd. I have put November 15th on the site just to be safe. I will begin shipping just as soon as they arrive. I hope this is not too late for you. Thanks for your very nice comments.

And here's another Canadian who remembers reading Lovecraft voraciously in his teens (too many years ago) and who thinks you've really captured the Lovecraftian flavour in your cards. I'm very much looking forward to your deck.

Just got home to find mine waiting for me. (That was quick!)

First impressions are great. The art is really intriguing and very well executed (although I knew that from the illustrations on the web site). The cards are large enough to really be able to see all of the intricate detail in the drawings. All in all, a lovely production (and it comes in a nice sturdy box to boot).

Quick indeed - I'm in the UK. These are great. I just LOVE Queen of Cups - always one of the first cards I look at ! Justice too. Oh heck - all of them !

And beautifully produced - may one ask what printer you used, as many have had troubles with printers recently... (PM if you would rather not go public on that !)

Gregory - I used Quality Playing Cards in Orlando, Florida.  They are very pleasant people to work with.  I was very pleased with their product and service, and plan on using them again in the future.

Mine arrived today - whow what a deck, it's that moment here when it's getting darker yet not dark enough to put the light on and these decks come really to live now - with a magickal radiation of forbidden knowledge, secrets that should stay hidden and so much more

I like dark decks and I like yours. I plan to order one on friday once money kick in in my bank account. I bought a Kobo Glo this month so I'm broke right now.

Hoping to get this deck soon as well, I thought it was very interesting, and will be a nice addition to my dark deck collection.

Saleire,
Nine Months of labor start to finish, although I first conceived of the deck some 33 years ago. I drew 5 majors at the time - now lost, and left it percolating on the back burner until this year.
Thank you for your comments, they are appreciated very much.

Tarot Dance - Thank you!

Happy New Year to All Members of the Board!

First for me too.

I seem to like every deck that calls out a Lovecraft influence.  Guess that means I should read it?

I've got my deck too -thank you Nemo - it is beautiful! On top of it the cards don't seem static (as in many other decks with beautiful artwork do) - your characters are full of movement and the cards come to life in a reading.
