My third deck was created for two reasons. The first is that there was a tarot deck that it would really compliment (which has now gone out of print) and the second being that I took a mythology class at school. It got me excited thinking about all of the different gods that there were in the Greek Pantheon. The original plan was to actually hire someone to design the cards for me, and we did get two cards completed before finances got the better of me.
Maybe someday I will break out those designs and make another oracle deck with them. In the meantime, these classical images are fantastic for connecting with self growth and development. The first run had a minor printing issue, so a second edition was released with the printing error fixed and a new card added.
This third edition of the deck has been carefully redesigned to make the classical paintings more vibrant and on display. For this reason I have chosen a layout that "frames" each image with the keyword on top and the god/goddess below. The card back features a map of Ancient Greece. I have changed the card stock and finish from previous releases, so the deck details are as follows:
- Cards are 2.48" x 3.46" (poker card sized)
- Card stock is S33 Superior Smooth
- Cards have a gloss finish to them
- Cards will come in a custom labeled tin (final design pending)
