    Card Decks, Silk Bags, Dresden, Electronic Art

    Filed under Art History, New Products, Playing Cards, Rubber Stamps

    Three new tarot decks with whimsical illustrations, all imported from Prague. Plus some beautiful hand-made silk drawstring bags.

    Silk Tarot Bags

    - The Fantastic Menagerie Tarot
    Full 78-card deck that uses the wonderfully eccentric illustrations of Victorian artist J.J. Grandville.

    - The Baroque Bohemian Cats’ Tarot
    Beautifully illustrated cats slinking through historic gardens, palaces and theatres in 17th c finery.
    Background art and architecture include the Baroque splendor of Prague.

    - The Victorian Romantic Tarot
    Based on exquisite engravings from the 19th century, this is a deck for art lovers, Victoriana enthusiasts and anyone who enjoys decks filled with evocative imagery.

    Beautiful, hand-made silk drawstring bags, made in Prague, and based on images from the Flower Oracle deck (with one addition from the amazing Kostnice Ossuary (“bone chapel”) in the Czech Republic.

    New Dresden

    - Gold Keys

    - Silver Small Shrines/Windows
    Set of 4. You can cut out the center ‘T” to have a larger/open window.

    - Thin Black Dresden Borders
    By request: thinner black borders.

    - Half-Round Gold Dresden Borders

    - Thin Looped Gold Dresden Borders

    Tim Holtz Distressables CDs

    Three CDs, each with 300 dpi electronic artwork. Crop them, resize them, print them multiple times. Images are in jpeg or ping format, so will work for Windows, Unix or Mac.

    - Papers & Frames
    15 vintage frames and 60 papers (in original 9″ x 9″ size — many of these were available here as physical papers, a few still are).

    - Elements
    345 images. As you can see from my samples, the items without straight edges are saved as ping files so they are ready to drop onto a layout without doing any silhouetting by hand. Categories include vintage kitchen, crowns, postcards, stamps, games, keys, sewing, books, clocks, travel labels.

    - Alphas/ Numbers
    9 sets of numbers and 7 full alphabets (including a baby block alphabets; with bonus bottle caps, word brushes (for Photoshop) and vintage people).
