Story behind the deck
MVT began as sketches for the interior illustrations of a memoir Stefanie had written about having a spiritual awakening that caused her to suddenly leave her marriage, job, house, and give away everything she owned and move alone across the country. She quickly realized the book was a catharsis, not to be published, and the deck was begging her to create it. She thought, who would want to buy a deck that has one character that looks just like me, basically spelling out my life story? So many synchronistic connections appeared in her life encouraging her and helping her produce it, create a website, guiding her to the next steps, and it went from a secret healing project just for herself to her entire business.
The 1st edition (2018) was 95% black and white with tiny pops of red, the 2nd edition (2020) featured an updated card font and increased moments of red spreading onto the cards, alluding to the Fool making her way out of the void and back into her life.
The 3rd edition (2021) we see the red melt into pink, the deck features blooming roses and follows the Fool's integration of shadow and return to joy. This deck was funded through Kickstarter and is a limited run of 1200 copies. It will not be reprinted.
