He knew that what was wanted by faery was something unusual, something very different, but they didn’t explain clearly they rarely do exactly what they did want. So he put the notion to one side and went on drawing faeries, filling his paintings with wonders and delights.

This, of course, was exactly what the faeries really wanted him to do. Many years ago I was inspired with the idea of making an unorthodox not quite tarot deck.


There was one big problem. Forud couldn’t paint the beings who wanted to be in orqcle deck in a way that would even begin to do them justice. But meanwhile, I continued to think about such a deck – who would need to be be represented in it, how it would work, and how it would differ from the standard tarot. I studied the principles underlying the tarot when it is used as an oracle, and I learned about how oracles in general worked.

He asked me if I thought a tarot deck could be made from these paintings. I sat up in my bed faeris of the night looking at the pictures and playing with ideas of how they might fit together in an oracle.


In the morning, I told Brian that, yes, I thought they would make a wonderful oracular deck and made some suggestions about how he might do this and what he might need to include.

He thought about this for a while, and then asked if I’d like to choose the rfoud for the deck and write the book. Of course I said YES!
