The Adult Coloring Book Phenomenon Now Includes Tarot Cards
with Fully-Colored and Do-It-Yourself Decks
SAN DIEGO, CA (October 23, 2019) – IDW and Alan Robert expand the bestselling line of coloring books, The Beauty of Horror, with a devilishly delightful Tarot Card Set — available to order right now as part of a Kickstarter campaign!
This first-ever Beauty of Horror Kickstarter gives fans of coloring books, mystical predictions, and macabre monsters the opportunity to acquire the Tarot Card Set as either a fully-colored card deck or a black-and-white deck perfect for coloring! And, of course, there’s also the option for the most dedicated devotee of divination to get both sets — because why should you have to choose?
- The “Fear Your Future” Deck is a traditional tarot set featuring art by Alan Robert and pre-colored by Jay Fotos, measuring the standard tarot card size of 70mm x 120mm and including a guidebook.
- The “Color Your Destiny” Deck follows the Beauty of Horror adult coloring book tradition by offering tarot cards, printed on premium cardstock paper, with line art by Alan Robert. Oversized for best illustrative results, these cards measure 90mm x 154mm and come packaged with a guidebook.
Inspired by the classic Rider-Waite tarot deck published in 1910, Alan Robert has fashioned the Beauty of Horror Tarot Card Set with 78 cards per deck, with 22 Major Arcana cards (featuring such classic cards as The Magician, The Lovers, The Hanged Man, and more, plus a special appearance of Beauty of Horror icon Ghouliana as The Empress) and 56 Minor Arcana cards.
“With The Beauty of Horror series, I set out to create the ultimate coloring experience for horror fans. Over the course of five books, I’ve expanded Ghouliana’s universe to include a legion of creepy characters and undead pals. This new Tarot card set features her entire gruesome gang and more,” explains Robert. ”The level of detail I put into these cards is beyond anything I’ve done before and I think that this sinister approach just adds to the mystery of the Tarot.”
Supporters of this crowdfunding campaign will receive several free “Ghouliana’s Ghastly Gifts” as a reward, many of which will be exclusive through Kickstarter! In addition to these special gifts with purchase, fans will have an opportunity to upgrade their experience with a Beauty of Horror themed tarot cloth as well as a “Draw Your Own Terror” deck.
