The A. Nonny Mouse Promotional Tarot Deck Parts I, II & III


A. Nonny Mouse Promotional Tarot Deck -

See the Finished Cards here: http://www.tarotforum.net/showthread.php?t=115450


See Post #3 below for Cards In Progress!

For anyone unfamiliar with The Mouse....

In August 2007, this thread appeared:

So it will now include those who might just need a nice surprise due to surgery, illness or whatever as well as the members who may have limited funds and can't afford trades and exchanges otherwise.

And by October 2008, the Mouse had outgrown its nest...

Without all of you, it couldn't have happened.

So, one day nanab asked to see a picture of Nonny...

(The actual cards will be drawn onto a blank tarot card. These photos are samples of what the cards might look like. )

The A. Nonny Mouse Promotional Tarot Deck Part II


CONTINUED FROM PART I

So here's the idea.

We will make an A. Nonny Mouse Tarot.

It's not about artistic talent. So don't hide under the sofa because you "can't draw". This is about love and community. Mouse love and the AT community.

Sign up for the card/cards you would like to do. I will provide cards from a blank Tarot deck, and will send your card blanks when all are spoken for.

Include an interpretation for your card(s) to put in the LWB.

When I receive the blank decks, I will ask you to pm your address to me. I will send your cards with a note to overseas participants as to my postage cost. You can reimburse me for my postage with paypal, euros, or cookies.

Please DON'T PM your address UNTIL I ASK FOR IT.


Think about what to do with the finished decks. Donate it to Nonny? Raffle it to raise Nonny funds? Award it in a Subscriber Competition? We will poll when decks are finished and posted.

Please join in! It's all about The Mouse. And you.

The A. Nonny Mouse Promotional Tarot Deck Part III


Post # 3

Everything you need to know is in this post!

Here's the mailing instructions post:
http://www.tarotforum.net/showpost.p...&postcount=402

We will make two decks. The final cards will be scanned so that everyone has access to the decks. The decks will be raffled to raise postage money for A. Nonny Mouse.

The actual cards will be drawn onto a blank tarot card. Your creations must have a mouse or mouse-related motif. You can draw your own vision, trace a photograph, or copy the composition of a photograph. Be careful not to infringe on someone's copyright, though. Ie., don't trace a cartoon character or a movie still or a children's book illustration. Please read Tarot Deck Creation forum guidelines on copyright.

Remember that these cards will be shuffled! So please- use waterproof ink or markers.

Imagine that you hold in your hands the A. Nonny Mouse Tarot deck. Only two in existence. Hand made by members of the Aeclectic Tarot Forum.

You shuffle. One card pops out onto the table; it's thicker than the others. You put it back in the deck, but two more pop out; some kind of sticky paint holding them together.


If your card will pop out of the deck, find another medium. Flexible and water resistant!


Test your chosen marker on a tiny portion of your Tarot card (maybe on the back?) Or submit your drawing in pencil if you want it inked by another person. Black&white or color, but please, please test for waterproof!

Sign your username somewhere on the drawing, not on the card back.

Include your interpretation for the LWB. See below for some examples.


WE WILL BE MAKING TWO DECKS, SO....
1. MAKE TWO IDENTICAL/SIMILAR CARDS, OR


2. TRADE YOUR CARD ASSIGNMENT WITH SOMEONE ELSE SO THAT YOU GET TO DO A DIFFERENT ONE


You will have three months from when you receive blank cards to make your cards.

It's not about artistic talent. So don't hide under the sofa because you "can't draw". This is about love and community. Mouse love and the AT community.

You're in with the Hermit!

Self addressed stamped envelope.

I'll correct that above. Snail mail has been passe for quite a while now, so the acronym is obscure

I would like the Magician Feretian!

I think we should sign our names on the front rather than the back which I think would be a distraction, and that the finished deck should be raffled for Nonny funds!

I would love to draw the Lovers, if the game is open to us overseas people as well

I don't live in the US, so sending a self-addressed stamped envelope wouldn't work, would it? I doubt the US mail system accepts Swedish stamps as valid and I have no idea how to get US stamps outside of the US... but if I could send some money via, say, Paypal or something to cover postage, would that work?

so, wait, is it not a normal envelope? Not normal mail?

Don't know, but the way I think it is supposed to work is this:

People who want to draw a card send an envelope with stamps and their address already written on it to Feretian, so Feretian can just put the card in that envelope and send it back to you without having to bother with postage and all that. But to mail things from the US, you need to use US stamps. Which could be a bit of a problem to get for us who live in other places.

But it's possible that I've misunderstood how it works. I've never used an SASE before, I'm just guessing. Hopefully someone who knows can tell us how it works. I'm as curious as you.

Yes, please, Oddity, join us.

I've edited to include international mail.

I'll ask the local postmistress how it works. We'll find a way.

Nonny has been known to travel overseas.

A self addressed stamped envelope in the US would be stamped just like a letter.
