Thank-you! Yes, Vampuss has been great to do, we've learned a lot of new techniques and it's developed our style (and by the way you'll see the influence of that style in See of Logos, the oracle we are doing with Rachel Pollack.)

I've wanted to do something based on Bram Stoker's Dracula (the real thing, not a modernised vampire tale) for ages, so this for me was a real dream project.

We've been told that an extract might (just might) be read out on radio in the UK (once it's published, officially another month yet). Paws and fingers crossed!

Dear baba!
I must confess that i was thrown off by Vampus for quite a while... i don't know if it's the theme or what...maybe beyond tarot i couldn't reconcile with the existence of more cats? (me and cats.. you know....)

Anyway, I looked at the new site a couple of days ago, (and I'm glad that this popped out again, as I forgot to respond), and what can i say?
I REALLY REALLY LIKED it! The spreads are very rich and beautiful and the atmosphere is superb.... You once again out did yourselves!
I think there is real future in this... it ..."smells" good....together with the BBCats it's like re-writing history... a whole new culture!!!
and I loooooove seeing tarot and culture together!

M-Press, Vampuss is a bit of an extreme project, I have to say. It is "my" thing in concept (it's an idea that's been around the back of my head for ages) and yes, a few people have been a bit "what???" when they saw it. However, it also seems to have had some amazing take-up already. So those who like it, really seem to like it. But it's quite a dark humour. And although you don't have to like cats, you have to understand them to get some of the expressions I think.
Edited to say - and thank-you for the confidence. Yes, it's becoming a whole world (oh dear, I wonder is that a good sign? ;-) ) The Vampuss spreads have this "oil painted" look that I love - it took a while to really know how to achieve that. Anyway, animation with sound on the way...

Scorpio - I feel so bad about not having supersized yet. However, look on the bright side - we could sneak in a few new pictures now. I really do want to do a limited edition of the Cats - and I think we really will. But as ever, there are so many projects and so little time (I mean, I can't even get the websites updated as fast as I should). But it will happen, it will. I think Vampuss sort of proves how good the pictures look BIG.

Another Vampuss fan here....(kitties + vampires....what's not to love???)

I have this one on my amazon wishlist....although I have to admit I was hoping for some Vampuss cards to go with my book, LOL....

Also wanted to mention I am looking forward to another deck coming out from MagicRealist this fall, The Fairytale Tarot. Any updates on this one??? (I tried to click on the website but no luck).

Thanks baba!!!

Back in a minute (er, make that an hour) with some cards - I hope!

and oh yes, we would LOVE to do Vampuss cards, but I doubt there would be a great market - maybe a bit too specialised? But it would make a great deck - we could do all the Dracula characters and then some...
