The Experimental was my first tarot. It has been designed with Corel Draw 4.0 and its rich clipart library on a 486/33.
It took me exactly 78 days to make it, one card a day, or rather a night because I used to make them after 1am - and I really
went steady 'til the end, no brakes. I immensely enjoyed the work and was surprised to find it accepted within two weeks
of the submission to Urania, the then biggest European publisher for tarot. The booklet the editor-in-chief
requested took a bit longer, mainly because I was not prepared to do it, I do not believe in books when it comes to tarot. But
no booklet - no publishing. So I gave in to the force :-)|
Later U.S. Games took on the English version, which btw. I wrote first - because I knew it would be harder to do for a German.
Both publishers did not really promote it a lot - so I ended up selling 100 per year myself to friends and people I played with -
while the entire rest of the bookselling world came up with 15 (!!) sales - that was when I revoked the copyrights from the
publisher (with his consent) and put the deck under the GPL to hopefully serve more usefully in that way.
