http://www.kirwanesque.com/deck/deck.htm

I remember seeing this deck when I first discovered AT AGES ago, and up to now it seems unpublished (or maybe some of you have copies already?). It seems implied in the site that it is finished, or at least the artist isn't working on it any longer, but not all the minors are shown (if indeed they have already been finished).

The style is unique to the deck, IMO. It is reversible, and would I guess make a good contrast to the Revelations.

Good idea! I shall. Weirdly enough, it doesn't seem to be as popular as other in-progress decks, at least google-wise.

According to http://www.wicce.com/jkirwan.html, the deck was completed, available for publishing. That's good news, at least is completed.

So I did e-mail him some time back and felt a bit disappointed when there wasn't any reply. I thought maybe he doesn't check that e-mail anymore. Apparently, he did reply, but it ended up in my spam folder. Weirdness. Anyway, here's his reply:

"Thanks for asking. I have finished that deck, and I'm working on new ways to publish it myself. The "economy" is a definite problem right now, but there might yet be ways to get this project into the hands of ordinary people at a believable price: which was always a major part of the point.
 
I will let you know, within the next ninety days, about where you might be able to find the finished product.

Thanks again for writing.

kirwan."

So that's at least hope for others out there awaiting this deck. :)

Hi;

I've been in love with this deck ever since I first saw the few images available in the 1990 printing of "The New Tarot". Please let me know if you ever manage to find the deck for sale, since I would dearly love to have a copy.

Thanks for the info!
