The Tea Bats Lenormand deck’s first edition can be seen here, though it has been retired. Below are samples of the second edition, which have been given a few updates. First a refresher on the deck.
The Tea Bats Lenormand was created for my Orange Moon Tea Society fiction/project and the style and design was inspired by the Mad Hatter poem Twinkle Twinkle Little Bat. The Orange Moon Tea Society is a fictional group in my Snapdragon Tea young adult series. A trio of sisters from the story own a bat emporium that sometimes acts as a whimsical bat cabaret on the weekends. In the story the deck was created by the eldest sister a.k.a. Flossie Leather Feathers and she uses it as a discussion piece at her society’s tea parties. It’s meant to look old and weathered; embracing all that is tea and bats, among a few other creatures that turn up.
Changes to the deck for the second edition include enlarging the cards to the standard tarot sized cards I use for all my other decks. I’ve given a little more detail to the artwork as well as adding a little more light coloring through tinting. I’m still working on the new packaging. Everyone really liked the old timey style of the first edition, so I want to stay close to that. I’m still not sure when I’ll make it available, but I have enough requests I might offer a few in time for Christmas. We shall see. 😉 More to come.
