Photo Art Book Released for The Sensual Goddess Tarot Deck
The artwork for our new Sensual Goddess Tarot Deck is so amazing that it cannot be fully appreciated at the size of the actual printed Tarot cards. So we have released a new photo art book “The Fantastic Photo Art of the Sensual Goddess Tarot Deck”for those who collect this style of photo art and is now available for purchase.
This book features the photo art of the Sensual Goddess Tarot deck created by Frederick and Oleanna Potter. It is primarily designed to be an art book for collectors of fantasy and sensual photo art. However, included in this book are also descriptions of each card and their meanings as well as a section on how to read the cards with a special description of the "Venus Spread" which was designed specifically for this deck. And so one could also consider this book to be a companion piece for those who already own the Sensual Goddess Tarot Deck. As this is an art book, if you are looking for a book to teach you how to read Tarot cards or other information on the Tarot, then it would be recommended that you acquire one or more of the many fine works that are currently available by qualified authors.
The artwork in this book is the product of almost three years of painstaking production and involved the construction of props and costumes, photorealistic 3D environments, thousands of model photography frames taken and extensive post production work. This deck is a beautiful addition to the Tarot genre and there is no other deck like this in the world.
Frederick Potter is a world renown photo artist who has had his work appear in numerous publications, web sites, art galleries and television specials. He is considered by many to be one of the world's foremost experts on photo image manipulation. He has authored the seminal book "RAW SKIN - Studio Edition" which describes many of the techniques used to create the images you see in this book and has taught at Mount Royal College as well as the Alberta College of Art in Calgary. He currently owns and operates the glamour photo studio “Editions by Frederick" in Calgary.
Oleanna Potter is Frederick's wife, muse and the subject of most of the images created for this Tarot deck. Her spiritual experiences, background and history that led her to meet and marry Frederick were significant factors in the decision to create this Tarot deck. The story of this journey is outlined in the introduction to this book. In all aspects of the concept, Oleanna is the perfect choice to portray the archetype of the Sensual Goddess.
This book will undoubtably become a collectors piece, as will the cards themselves. Some may choose too simply purchase the actual deck, however for those who want a greater appreciation of the art itself, this book provides large color reproductions of each card and will be a valuable addition to the collection of any serious aficionado of sensual fine art.
The Tarot finds its roots in mediaeval, celtic, pagan and other ancient traditions that celebrate the goddess archetype. Like the many famous paintings, sculptures and drawings from the past great masters who depicted the many forms of goddesses, these illustrations also contain artistic nudity and is intended for adults.
