Star & Moon Block Print | A3
This print is my own arrangement of the original tarot card designs by Pamela Coleman Smith, the artist behind the Rider-Wait Tarot Deck.
To create this design I have stripped The Moon and The Star cards of colour, and after a little bit of tinkering and splicing have tried to seamlessly patch the designs together. Overall, I have tried to keep to her style and vision as much a possible. Hopefully none of my alterations are too jarring!
The print was hand made in our London workshop using a combination of traditional block printing techniques and a modern laser engraver. This print therefore portrays a very accurate depiction of the original artwork as well as keeping the texture and uniqueness of a block print that could very well have been present in the original Edwardian production of Smiths 1909 Deck.
The print is A3 and is printed on handmade cotton rag paper. The paper is very thick at 320gsm and has a natural deckled edge.
