    wow. I was looking forward to seeing the Knave of Cogs, love it.
    Creepier and creepier.
    I'm curious what the origin is of the design for the 10 of Circles...
    The top half of it, i.e. the upper 6 circles, is identical to a geometric design on a poster that's been on the wall of my flat since I moved in.
    Does this mean I've had the yawning maw of hell in my living room all along?

    @Citrus

    If I'm not mistaken that''s the Ladder of Sephiroth/Tree of Life (image). It's from the Kabbalah.

    @citruscreed & RenThing- yes, you've hit the nail on the head- it's the Tree of Life.

    Now, on to today's card, the last of the knaves, since the Knave of Bone was posted much earlier:

    Knave of Circles

    Ok, last of the Queens now:

    Queen of Sea

    Which means next week, we move on to the remaining Kings and Joker. Hot damn, it's almost done!

    All right- two kings and a joker left to go, so let's do this:

    King of the Sea

    King of Bones

    OK, that's got today's- one joker tomorrow, and then the whole set's uploaded. As it is, the printers are currently still in pre-press review.

    Preliminary mega-congratulations! It's been a lot of fun watching this develop, and I'm looking forward to holding a copy in my hands and seeing what horrible things it leads to.

    I really, really like the King of Bones. He's got some kind of expression to him, that quirky grin, which is rather uncommon in a skull.

    Ok, folks:

    The Final Joker

    That's it, the last card in the deck- feels almost anticlimactic at this point, but yes, it's officially done, aside from me dealing with the printers. Which reminds me, if you're going to want a copy, it might be best to get one preordered, just to make sure it's reserved. In the meantime, I'm working on a guidebook for the deck that'll be done as POD-printing- with a lot of luck, it'll be ready to go around when the decks start shipping.

    Awesome, and that last Joker looks great.

    Have you seen any samples of the possible final product? You said you saw some a few weeks ago but they turned out less than awesome.

    Congrats Dmitri, wish you the greatest success with this, the completed Deck is utterly jaw-dropping.

    @RenThing- I'm working on that at this point. Right now we're dealing with negotiation issues with the printing company- nothing major, but since they're a few time zones away from me, there's a rather obnoxious communications lag. Trust me, the minute I get proofs, I'll be spamming pics of them far and wide.

    And Citruscreed, James Cunningham, and everyone else who've been watching this thread the whole time I've been at it? Thanks for all the support, guys. Now I just need to get the whole final product together.
