I like it - reminds me of the Pallfy Tarot but lighter hearted.

I'd love to know this too. I don't suppose there is, since she mentions in a comment on her page that she's looking for a publisher.
I hope she will find it as soon as possible.

My goodness, these are kind of fabulous! And disturbing! I'm a little creeped out by the umbilical cords (which make me think of intestines), though.

I love the pips (other than the cords). Gorgeous rich backgrounds, love the tree branches, the cups are beautifully detailed. I just really enjoy her illustration style and coloring in general.

Totally agree with this! Love the humor, and all the details you mentioned. I was also amused by the pointing and laughing on Judgement, Le Bateleur's creepy gesture of invitation, and the horrible literal depiction of getting shot by Cupid's arrow on the Lovers. I like the coins for eyes in the Deniers, and adore the expressive eyebrows: everyone is either mean or worried/sad. The Reyne de Deniers has a great expression, the way La Papesse reads the bible seems funny for no good reason I can explain, and I like that the Valet de Deniers vomits coins.

I like these, but they are not my style. Good art and the less scary cards are stunning.

This is one weird deck. I'm not sure if I like it or not. I like it but I don't like it, you know? I think it was the card with the horse with its eyes......ooh, jeez.

I still wouldn't mind owning it, though.

Mixed feelings on this one. Some of the images I like but I can't deal with eyes being poked out. Just, no, not for me because of that even if I loved the rest that would prevent me from buying it. And the umbilical cord thing is too weird. But I get the Edward Gorey vibe.

The umbilical cords are part of what I love about it.

I see an uncut sheet on her Facebook page, so she must be getting close to release. I hope it won't be terribly expensive. (Nothing against artists charging what they feel their work is worth, god knows they are usually criminally underpaid.)
