NOTE:  we have chosen to do this crowdfunding on our own website so that every single penny that is donated goes to the printing costs.


Reason for fund raising – the reprint/new edition!

As many of you will know, Quareia is a free magical training school, and we also produce some magical books at normal cost price. We do a lot of work for free, and we work very hard to ensure anything that we do that has a price tag, i.e. books and the deck, is affordable. And those funds, along with donations, keep us ticking along and working.

We also ensure that any necessary texts or decks that a mentored student needs is freely or cost only available for them. We have sent free books and decks all around the world, to places where $20 is a weeks wage for many.  We have kept one box of the original deck packs to one side and they will be given freely to mentored initiates if and when they need them.

To re print the deck and re do the book, we need funds, something we do not have. We have a goal of 12,500 British pounds to cover the printing of the deck and the book.

The second edition of the book will be bigger, better, with more information, and in full colour.

It establishes a completely new interface of magical communication - compellingly simple and straight forward in its layout and design, yet thoroughly grounded in decades of practice and experience of Josephine McCarthy and other adepts who contributed to this deck. 
To my knowledge no such magical tool exists today. Neither one similar in intend and certainly none similar in artistic style, craft and care that went into its design, collaboration and creation. – Frater Acher

So far I’ve been trying to remain fair, objective, and factual, but I’m going to break for a moment here and just gush. Omigod I love this deck! The deck fills a void in the tarot/oracle/cartomancy world that I haven’t seen any other deck on the market during the time I’ve been alive and interested in cartomancy even come close to filling. I am not a Quareia practitioner or even a practitioner of Western magic. I don’t even identify as a magician. And yet there is something for me here in this deck. – Benebell Wen

Making the deck even more valuable is the art, and the diversity of characters depicted. The artwork is expressive and haunting, capable of transporting you within, into a starry and lush landscape.
