Please read all the information below before you commit to purchase (including our Terms & Conditions).
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PRE-ORDERS: Smoke, Ash & Embers is a pre-order, which means that decks will ship between March and April of 2022. This is an estimate and could be delayed due to the ongoing pandemic.
If you order other items along with Smoke, Ash & Embers, they will ship together in the same package. If an item is currently available and you wish to receive it sooner, please place a separate order for that item.
Please note that all photos shown are prototype copies. The finished designs may vary.
PRE-ORDER WINDOW: Pre-orders will run from Oct. 31st (7pm, UK time) – Nov. 30th, 2021 (7pm, UK time) with this special early-bird pricing of £37.50 per deck + shipping (a savings of £5 off the normal retail price); each deck includes one set of dragon-themed early-bird extras (one A6 sized print pack, one sticker pack and one fridge magnet...a £14.50 value!).
Once the pre-order window ends, we'll be finalising the artwork and placing an order with the printer. We'll then have a better idea of how many decks we'll have left to sell and list remaining copies on our website (dates TBA). Decks will increase to £42.50 per deck + shipping (extras aren’t included but may be purchased separately).
If you'd like to order more than 5 decks (meaning your order will contain 6+ decks), please contact us first (so we can find the best shipping rate for you).
BACKSTORY: In our first Tarot deck, we introduced you to the forest creatures living in its world; but theoretically, if we were to wander through that forest and take a closer look, we might have discovered a dragon perching high up on a tree branch (keeping a watchful eye) or another comfortably resting in a bed of moss (out of view, of course). The idea behind this deck is that the dragons have finally come out of hiding (and we're so glad they did).
DECK SPECS: Decks will consist of a thank you card, 78 tarot cards (22 Majors and 56 Minors), an extra (alternative) Ten of Swords, one mystery art card in keeping with the theme of the deck (the mystery art card will be exclusive to the first printing of this deck only) and two, double-sided reference cards. The deck will be protected by two blank cards.
They will be printed on eco-friendly, 400 GSM, FSC accredited/carbon balanced paper with veggie inks (protected by matte, anti-scuff laminate).
The cards will measure 70mm x 120mm (2.75" x 4.75"), with white borders and rounded corners. While the back of the cards won’t be reversible, it doesn't mean that you can't read using reversals. We encourage you to use this deck in whatever way suits you best.
The cards will be housed in a light green, 350gsm tuck flap box (with an easy to open lid and a glued base); beautifully embossed in black veggie-based ink in a woodland design.
Since we want to keep Smoke, Ash & Embers as eco-friendly as possible, there is no physical guidebook that accompanies this Tarot deck, and there are no plans for one. Instead, we will include two double-sided companion reference sheets featuring keywords that thoughtfully depict the nature of each card, allowing the deck to be read intuitively. There will also be an accompanying PDF guidebook (login instructions will be sent after decks are dispatched).
THE MAJOR ARCANA: Many of the Majors are distinguished by their dark, mystical skies, which emphasise the Major Arcana's importance.
THE MINOR ARCANA: The Cups are water-based and quite playful. The dragons in this suit have little webbed feet, gills and a frog-like appearance. The Pentacles are earthy and grounded. Many of the dragons in this suit have leafy scales and a strong connection to the forest. The Swords are airy and a bit serious. This suit is illustrated with dark colours and black, winged dragons. The Wands are fiery and curious. Here, you’ll find lots of reds, smoke, fire and fog.

Actual colours may vary. This is due to the fact that every computer monitor, laptop, tablet and phone screen has a different capability to display colours and that everyone sees these colours differently. We try to edit our photos to show all of our products as life-like as possible, but please understand the actual colour may vary slightly from your monitor.
