Sepia Stains is my first tarot deck and probably my biggest learning experience as far as all the many details that go into creating and publishing a deck. I began working on it mid 2000 and finished it at the start of 2008. At the time I was working on my first graphic novel The Black Ibis and within that story there are two tarot decks. I decided I wanted to make the decks as an extension of the story. As far as the style of the deck it is a very non traditional tarot that is very light on symbolism. The major arcana features characters from my graphic novel and the minor arcana features story artifacts. Below is a look at the entire tarot with deck information and ordering options.

Full Deck Packaging Details:
A variety of wonderful people offered their likeness to several of the cards. Below are the models featured within the deck. Many thanks to them! And since these are all artists and creative types themselves I do recommend taking a moment to get to know them, if you don’t already.
The front of the card features the airship from
Myke Amend’s Desert Shadows painting.
