A buffet of mystical art for you. And why I think it’s such an important trend

If you know me, you know I love anything mystical, so we’re delighted to showcase a buffet of mystic treats by our artists.

We’re assigning heaps of projects in the spiritual realm–palmistry, tea leaf reading, astrology, crystals, for example–for books, card decks, miniature gift kits, even children’s books! As women’s voices become stronger, so do the previously marginalized interests of women. Hence, the trend.

Contact us to assign or license art. We’re happy to help you find the perfect artist or gorgeous images for your project!
