For me, the Tarot Lovers' Calendars were a labor of love, a way for me to recognize and encourage independent tarot deck creation. As you review the lists of tarot decks featured in the various editions you will find many of your favorites. My vision for the caIendar was to produce an annual, high quality, limited edition showcase for the best tarot decks produced by independent artists. I'm proud of what I accomplished but now wish to put that same energy into my own creative endeavors.

Pictured here are the covers of the 13 calendars produced. I'm certain all the editions are valued possessions of those who were lucky enough to buy them either as they were produced or picked up second hand from a collector.

I do have a few of some of the editions. Some of the editions sold out. If there's a gap in your collection you'd like to fill you can always drop me a line. You might get lucky and I'll have what you want for the cover price.
