On Monday October 17, 2022, Rachel Quinlan and the Changeling Artist Collective launched the Woven Path Tarot Kickstarter, an enormous collaborative project between 91 artists to create a medieval tapestry-inspired tarot deck composed entirely of original art.

Each card in the deck has an elaborate, two foil card back trimmed in gold foil gilded edges, and comes with UV spot gloss ink to further embellish the front with rich tactical texture.

The deck also comes with a full color, 200 page, illustrated guide book, which along with the deck arrive in a foil stamped clamshell case with magnetic ribbon closure.

Several thematic add-ons are available from Day 1, including a tapestry covered notebook, pencil case of the same design, and silk altar cloth, with several more planned as stretch goals are unlocked.

As previously mentioned, this deck is the collaborative effort of 91 different artists, including 15 past and present Magic: The Gathering artists and a large majority of the Changeling Artist Collective.
