Gothic Mystery Tarot
Gothic, mystery and medieval times... that's what comes to my mind when I browse through babastudioprague's shop.
Everything found in there is genuine, made with a unique style I've never seen before. These fine pictures are sold as prints but also as designs for small and large bags. There is also a deck of tarot cards available, with the same pictures including minor & major arcana, 72 cards in total: it is the perfect collectors item and has been awarded the Best Tarot of 2006.
All pictures feature cats... not animal cats though! These are cat-people, with smart eyes looking at everything and perhaps brewing something mischievious. I remembered a fine story by Neil Gaiman in Sandman, "The Dream of a Thousand Cats" where the cats conspired to dream of a world where they were masters over the humans... and if a thousand cats dream of it, it would be true.
So, step into this mystery studio and travel down the centuries to a different reality, where the cat-people rule...
