SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER: The first edition of the Tea Bats Lenormand is about to be retired. I have a limited time sale going on right now to make available this version of the deck to anyone who wishes to add it to their collection. The second edition will be coming out in the new year and will feature larger cards (and easier to read card artwork) as I’m unifying my card sizes for my open edition decks. —This sale is now over. Thank you for your orders! Decks are currently shipping–
Do you like tea? Do you like a good story? Do you like both?! Together?!! Wonderful!! Because our sister site The Orange Moon Tea Society is just that!
Our artists, raised on the best fantasy fiction, comics and graphic novels, are also writers as well. In fact art was an opportunity to illustrate their written stories. The Tea Bats Lenormand deck is a very good example of the melding of the two. You see, over on our society site you can read all about the strange characters and creatures that inhabit the fictitious Orange Moon Downs and as you do this you can sip a cup of tea brewed from the flavors inspired by those tales. More than that, you can sip your tea, read your tales and practice a bit of tea-bat-centric cartomancy.
The Tea Bats Lenormand deck was created for the character Flossie Leather Feathers and her ever entertaining Bat Cabaret. Her little collective of performing night-wings crafted themselves upon one lovely Mad Hatter quote: “Twinkle, twinkle, little bat! How I wonder what you’re at! Up above the world you fly, Like a tea tray in the sky.” from Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. This deck celebrates those lil flying tea pots.
Our deck was offered for a limited time through a fund-raising campaign to help fund The Orange Moon Tea Society when we were just starting out. An open edition of this deck will be available again mid-summer.
