Has anyone received any new additions lately? This deck is lovely and I am paranoid that somehow I fell off into space on the mailings...

The last card I received was The Fool, back in May 2008.

I think the artist recently had a baby, so that could be keeping her busy! There's a Tarot of the Pomegranate site on Tribe.net that has a post about that.

Me too. I wish she would finish the majors; it would feel sort of more COMFORTABLE, somehow !!!

Yeah, the last card I received was the Fool, also.  I think that, yes, she did just have a baby (summer of 2008?).   I guess we all have to be patient.

Yes. :D

And I heard she gave birth last year - maybe there is a problem..... (I see someone already mentioned that...)

ETA quote from her blog, dated March 12 2009:
I am finally getting back to painting after having my little baby Nini 8 months ago! I have been cleaning out the painting area in the basement in our new house, so Poul and I will both be painting up a storm soon here! I am not sure how we are going to work out the schedules, it will revolve around Nini of course (as everything does now) and her naps! I'm sure i can get my mom to come and babysitt sometimes during the day so I can be downstairs painting. Right now i have the Hanged Man which is almost done sitting there in it's new painting area waiting for me, and my blank unprepped canvas, which will be the Chariot ,next to it. It's so exciting to have only two more left to do of the Major Arcana!

So cheer up !

Well couldn't she push out the Chariot and the Hanged Man between contractions? Yeesh!

Ok I will be good now... at least until the next monthly whine  :cl

I don't want to belabor the point, but I am so disappointed that she has not given us an update.  I am afraid that she has forgotten who has ordered her deck.

THat's the same email she sent me about 6 months ago..... I do slightly wonder if she has PND - she had recently had the baby when I last heard....

Now I am worried.  She never responded to my e-mail of almost 9 months ago.  AND, my support of her deck is listed on her web page "Suzi from Poughkeepsie". 

When her 5 of cups failed to reach me, I wrote to her twice, and she did respond with an apology and a 5 of cups mailed to me as a result. 

From now on, I'll keep checking in with you guys.

So far, so good.  I have all the same cards you do.

Thanks so much for posting them!

Hello, Nicole..........

Thanks for the prompt.  I try to remember to check her site to see if any new cards are going out.

Keep the faith............

*sigh*

I've sort of given up on this. And maybe I never believed she would follow through with the concept because frankly, she will lose money on mailing cards to me in Germany alone!

I had sort of expected to receive the cards in bunches, and not one at a time, too.

Morwenna,

I've gotten, I think, two new cards in two  years.  She really owes an explanation to those of us who have invested in her deck.   What I can't fathom is how she can continue to present her deck "in progress" to others, at this rate.  Let's hope that we are way off base, and that she has more than The Hanged Man in the works.

I hate the be such a wienie about this...I just wish at least we could say we had a set of the majors completed...

I have no problem waiting for a deck to be created... Marie White and Joanna Powell Colbert, for example, took a some time to get their decks done, but they completed majors, sold them, and then went on...

:f



I thought I'd slip in my monthly whine before gregory got back in town to yell at me

:cl

Hi all; dunno what email you are all using, but:

Thanks for contacting me about Tarot of the Pomegranate, and your continued interest and support! I am diligently working on The Hanged Man at the moment, and am almost finished with it. It will be quite a surprise, and worthwhile wait! Yes, unfortunatley it is taking me longer to finish cards this past two years because of the baby ( pregnancy and adjusting to being a new mom is quite a journey in itself! )
I am very diligent about getting back to people who contact me about my deck, and I check my email several times a day. I am not sure who is not getting an answer from me but they may have an incorrect email address, otherwise I would have received an email.
I have not received any email from a fellow journeyer in many months, those I do get a quick response as you know. I look forward to sending everyone the latest major arcana and am aiming for December. Send me good thoughts!


(Given my own daughter who has slowed down dramatically since becoming a mum - it is DAMNED hard in this day and age...)

Thank you, Gregory

I am so pleased to read her response to you.  Yes, I am aware that she is still working on the Hanged Man; and now my faith has been restored by the tone of her email.   Ah Babies!   I remember those days.  Now my granddaughter is bringing it all back!

Regards,

Suzi:kt

Just got email:

I have now completed "The Hanged Man" and I will be sending out the Tarot card to add to your deck in the mail shortly.

:ce:ce:ce:ce


Now if she would just finish the majors next (what's that - just Chariot to go ?)

Sorry I haven't been posting on the Pomegranate forum lately...I've been meaning to...Yes, The Chariot is in progress and I will post a more detailed account of The Chariots journey as I go deeper into it! FYI this card follows a more traditional interpretation ( compared to the last card The Hanged Man )...

OK ALREADY ????:cl

Me, too.   I am so very disappointed - but you know - I've forgotten all about her and her deck.

 

What I can't understand is the fact that she still is accepting money for a "deck in progress" .   Whatever happened to responsibility and integrity?  I can't even remember when I received her last card (???) Nor can I remember WHICH card it was.  

 

She is fading from my Tarot memory.

Her method was flawed. Her artwork is so detailed and thought out that she cannot just rush off another card image in an afternoon or two. Her artwork is so very good that I think we are getting a great bargain. I am sure she is losing money by sending each of her original purchaser a card one at a time. She is paying us now for her tarot deck.

I cannot remember what I originally paid her. It was quite a few years ago, but I think we have all got quite a bargain for her artwork, and An-Magrith Erlandsen has lost quite a bit of money sending out the cards one at a time. Like others I think she should just complete the Majors and move on to some other project. I feel sure she regrets issuing the deck before it was complete. But it is great artwork and I would even settle for the present incomplete deck. It is a unique method for selling a deck. That alone should make it very collectable.

Anyone who does not yet have a deck (even in its incomplete state) should consider buying one in case it disappears entirely.

She has told me several times - over 6 months - that the Chariot is almost finished. An almost finished card shouldn't take a year.

I too think it was a weird way to do this, and wish she would complete the majors. I would happily settle for that (I paid $50, incidentally.)

And I have an answer:

Sorry it's taking sooo long! But The Chariot is coming along great, the face is finished. It's looking good! I'm super busy with performing a lot lately which = practice practice practice, plus a two year old! I'm performing in the New Orleans Fringe festival Nov 20-21st. I integrate my Tarot deck in my performances, I've posted some on my video library page on my website if you want to check them out. Well, thank you for your patience. I know it's the last Major Arcana card so it's a "big step for mankind" in my life and my fellow journeyers! After this month will be able to finally focus less on performing and more on my painting. I'm aiming to have it finished by the end of Dec for the new year as it's going to be unveiled in a show in January! Thanks for your continued interest and support!!
OK ? (not immediate - but - coming !)

Yes indeed. NOW it kind of - doesn't matter that much any more; the deck is complete in ONE way. But if she is going to take this long over every card I will be long in my grave before it's fully completed.... :sd

I am happy to just have the Majors.

It was a crazy idea of An-Magrith to issue the cards in this way. One can understand why she did this, but it will cost her more to post one card at a time than she originally charged for the deck.

Her artwork is very good. So anyone who did not subscribe to the deck earlier, can now, I presume, buy at least the full set of Majors.

I've got mine too  !!  :hp

In a thin envelope with no support, so its demaged (bended, etc) but at list I have the Majors now.

Very nice card BTW, I really like it!

It looks like she is going to publish a majors only:
She talks about 24 cards. Shouldn't we get than the 2 new major cards? (maybe we will)

quote from her website:

'Check back again soon for a new bigger Tarot deck of all 24 Major Arcana only!!
If you are interested in my "Tarot deck in progress" please contact me!'


So your drawing may look like this now:
(hope you don't mind that I touched it)

I think she's just weird. But at least we have all the majors :)

I shall never again buy a deck put out in this way.

rylla,

Thank you for recalling the oft forgotten "There is Hope Card" traditionally #23.


God/dess knows what #24 will be....

you mean you are still getting cards?  I haven't gotten one for so long i decided i haf gotten ripped off (again).

that's why i won't do any on kickstarter or any thing like that, i just don't trust anymore

I do kickstarter but not indiegogo. THIS one was something else, though. A weird way to send it out - but I think it MIGHT made worked if she hadn't had a baby. The end of time to work on it...

Hello,

sorry for the slightly off topic and maybe indiscreet question, but why not indiegogo ?
Kickstarter seems fine, but it's extremely expensive and complex to use it for a non U.S. citizen.
There are similar european or french crowfunding websites, but I wouldn't mind using them as they have such a reduced visibility - have you only heard about kisskissbankbank or babeldoor ?

Why not indiegogo ? Because - kickstarter doesn't take backers' money until the project is fully funded. If it doesn't hit the target -= no money changes hands. This means a good chance of it happening. With Indiegogo the money is (or was last time I looked into this !) passed on as soon as a pledge is made. So you risk a project that gets - say - 25% funded and never completed and never had a chance in hell of being completed. And all the backers lose their money. Sure that can happen with kickstarter too - but if the project starts out with all the money it needed to raise - there[s less chance of collapse.

Why is it so pricey for non US people ?

I think I understand the difference now, I just checked their website : there are two kinds of projects on indiegogo, the ones with "flexible" funding (the steal you're speaking of) and the ones with "fixed" funding - like kickstarter's. This isn't very well explained on their website though.

Kickstarter is open to people with an US social security number or US entities only, hence a foreigner has to create a corporation in the US ($500 or so) in order to get all taxes stuff and all... and have a postal address there. It makes the process pretty complicated. Or one has to have a straw(wo)man in the US, but when money is at risk this can be pretty.

This may be interesting for a six figures number funding plan, but for most tarot related stuff, it's way too expensive.

You have a project there. Rylla ? Anyone from anywhere can support, but to set up your own project, I gather it is US only basically, because of tax issues.

Oh, I see. Sorry, I wasn't reading the posts carefully enough. I imagined the talk is about those who back up a project.

Great! Good to see she is working on it. Taking into consideration the speed she is advancing, there is one exciting question: what will happen first: will she finish it before I'll be dead? :-)

Yes, he is here. And very lovely he is too and what it is so.

Her work is lovely, I have to say. I wish I thought I'd have the full deck before I die... but at this rate I'd have to live to 120 or something.

Wondering if somebody has her email/contact address? My address has changed and I am clicking in vain on her contact info on her website (I found it in 2 places but none of them worked for me - so I tried the link for purchasing a deck works - THAT one did! I thought I can 'steal' her address from there but the money would have been directed to Dark Fusion Theater and I'd like to send an email directly to her as I am missing 2 cards (Page of Cups included - but that card could be in its way). Thanks!

Her art is excellent, but rounded corners??!!! That's a new one! I've never seen a tarot deck where some of the cards have square corners and some of them have rounded corners! I like variety, new conceptions, new ideas but not THAT much!!!

Is the difference in font annoying or does it blend in?

I am also wondering how am I going to fit 78 cards (OK that's not my main concern right now) in the beautiful pouch she provided as I can hardly fit the 36 cards I already have.

LOL - you probably have a few years to worry about the pouch :cl

Here are two side by side to see corners and fonts.

Thanks for posting it Nicole. The title of the cards are at least more visible now, the old one is almost lost in the design - by the time the deck will be complete my eyesight will deteriorate enough so the old font won't bother me :)
(but she could not possible change the font based on this consideration :))(that we all get old meanwhile :)) OK, joke aside, I guess she realised that the font is a bit hard to see and she will change it for all the cards by the time her deck will be ready to be sold on the market (I mean like when she'll sell it as a full deck of cards). Still - shocking!

Well, I emailed her and she said, when I asked if the full deck (when it's done :cl) will all use this font:

Yes, when I redesign it will be all different! The changes in the cards over time is part of the journey...

and when I expressed surprise at the change for those of us collecting:

This is not the first time I have changed the font so it should not be too much of a "shock"

Yeah, well, no.

Is it a journey? Or just an inconsiderate annoyance masquerading as spiritual and artistic growth? You be the judge.

If this was a relative, I'd quit inviting her to holiday parties. If it was a neighbor, I'd build a fence. If I had a fence, I'd make it higher.

Leaving jokes aside, this is exactly the kind of response I'd expect from her based on her attitude reflected by the cards she sent us.

Didn't she mention in how many decades does she plan to finish her "journey"? This deck may go in guinness book for the longest time that passed between paying for a deck and actually getting it (IF ever...)

Well, yeah. I was OK with the other font changes, and I can see why she went for this one as an ultimate (I don't like it, but it is clearer) But the mix really jars.

I don't plan to rock the boat any harder though. I live in hopes of having a full deck before I peg it. What seems very odd is that this inconsistency makes the deck - to me - almost less cohesive than the collaboratives people seem to dislike so much.

I see it (together with the rounded corners) as a disrespect for her customers. But it is what it is. My hope is the same: to have the whole deck one day. WOrst comes to worst I can trim my deck. Collectors on the other hand will have the most peculiar (and one-of-a-kind :D ) deck ever!
