I'm so excited to be ready to begin this preorder. As something I created mostly out in the public via Instagram, this is my first work that hasn't been "in a cave" until the time of availability. The encouragement I received as well as the overall enthusiasm for this project have been such a vital source of the power I needed to complete the work. Thank you to everyone who has followed along and the preorder link is right here.
Due to a couple of delays with production, the decks have finally been completed and are getting ready to ship to me. Originally I believed I would have them by yesterday (the 15h) at the latest and I'd be getting ready to ship to everyone who had preordered. Big thank you to everyone's support and patience in the matter and we will get them out in the mail as soon as possible upon delivery.
For the many people who asked if I would ever release a book about the imagery of the Ellis decK, I have! Visit my bigcartel store to purchase the 175 pages descriptive guidebook to the Ellis decK Tarot!
The 3rd printing order was completed this morning and the estimated delivery date to me is the 15th of February. Preorders should be shipped out 2-3 days after this and the deck will be available in the online store around the same time. Lots of gratitude to everyone who has participated in this preorder (as well as any that have happened in the past) As a self publisher without a backer, this is pretty much the only way to keep the Ellis decK in circulation - Infinity of Thank Yous <3
For those who haven't followed me at @whycantijustbetaylor in Instagram, or don't use Instagram, you may not know I have spent the last year and a half on another deck - The Tarot of the Starbound Phantasia. After enough dreams about more tarot cards, some soul-changing growth, and an interest in the the Marseilles and Aleister Crowley, I decided to create a second Tarot deck. At the time of this post, I have around 14-15 cards lft to complete before the art for the deck is ready to print. Again, the best way to keep up with me is to follow my Instagram, as it's something I can update quickly and with a minimum of effort before getting back to work.
I am terrible at having and updating a website and I am sorry for that.
I have run most of my posting through Instagram for at least the last year. Mostly, because I am not entirely sure who really visits the site and reads the blog posts, and feel like my time is better spent drawing than self-promoting. However, if you follow the link to the right on this page, you will find yourself in my online store where you will be able to make a preorder for this print run.
I'm so sorry if anyone has come here and read that the decks have been out of stock in the last month. They are definitely available here.
A huge thank you to everyone who bought the 5th edition. If you are still wanting a copy DO NOT WORRY ^^ I will be doing a second print run. Before I do that, I'll have the option to pre-order the deck for a discounted price. Either follow me on instagram@whycantijustbetaylor or submit a contact for through the site if you want to know as soon as the pre-order is available!
Big thanks to everyone who made a pre-order for the 5th edition of the Ellis decK! This was the largest pre-order I've had so far and I'm so happy to see the enthusiasm for this edition. The order is processing at the printers now, and the estimated ship date to me is between the 8th and the 10th of March. After that, I'll be signing decks and getting them shipped out to their respective pre-orderers as well as putting stock in the online store for those who missed the preorder. Thank you again, all of you are beautiful and awesome.
