Tucked inside the Crystal Universe Deck box you will find a deck of cards featuring original crystal paintings by Deanna Jacome, and a book of writing by Grace Harringon Murdoch.
1. Marry writer Grace's clean, geometric aesthetics with Deanna's loose, layered paintings into one cohesive set.
2. The design needed to consolidate a significant amount of writing into a small booklet.
3. Artfully crop Deanna's original paintings to fit the card's dimensions.
Inspired by the facets of crystals, I created an original geometric pattern to use on both the Crystal Universe Deck box and the back of each card. I filled the facets with a snippets of Deanna Jacome's paintings, focusing on her lush, textured brushstrokes.
Each Crystal Universe Deck card get's its own book spread filled with the insightful, beautiful writing of Grace Harrington Murdoch. The book also features photos of Grace's writing, Deanna's artistic process, and card spreads.
Each card features a considerately-cropped original painting by Deanna Jacome paired with the name of the crystal, a number which coordinates with the crystal's book spread, and the crystal's coordinating symbol.
