I'm enjoying the deck so far, each card vivid and vibrant. But I expressly want to commend you for also taking the trouble to create an astounding card-back. Ornate, complex, tasteful tones, the suggestion of a lemniscate, makes the most of the space available, and it says STEAMPUNK. No forgetting which deck is which, with this card-back. I'm not so fond of solid-colour card-backs with demure little pencil-stripe borders.

Thank you very much! The artist I gave this part of the project to really outdid herself with the detail--and I made very sure that the image looked the same whether the card was upright or reversed. Plus, it makes a great border for the card art on the other side.

Thank you again--glad you're liking what you're seeing!

BTW, counting 3 in-progress cards (Justice, King of Cups, King of Pentacles--see the flier!), there are only 11 cards left to do--I can't believe the finish line is in sight!

Shortly after posting that, one of my artists sent 2 finished pieces--behold Justice and the King of Cups, painted by Alex Boca for the Tarot of Brass & Steam!

Me too, in fact I was just going to log into kickstarter to see how things were going, LOL. So nice to see the updates here.

I think I am going to love this deck.
