Each and every part of the special edition tarot card box set was thoroughly thought about by Liminal’s designers, and then rigorously tested by Imago to ensure all of the elements fit together perfectly and that the product would stand up to the tests of time and inevitable heavy product use.
The lid of the suitcase-style box used to house the many elements of the special edition tarot card set was especially complex to create. The inside lid incorporates an entire stage as seen from the seats of a theatre, designed and created to symbolise the idea that the world is a stage for events to occur. Coincidently the theatre was also symbolic to the creator of ‘The New Chapter Tarot’, Kathryn Briggs as she came to a crossroads as to whether to pursue art or acting.
To create this effect, Imago printed and die-cut multiple individual elements including the curtains, throne, and four trees, which were then hand-glued into place within the suitcase lid according to the correct position requirements.
To create the lower section of the suitcase-style box for the special edition tarot cards and other paraphernalia, a platform was created as an inside base. This was formed of two separate compartments, one designed to hold the box containing the tarot cards and the other to hold the various other components including stickers, postcards, and even a tarot-themed cotton scarf! The platform was then printed, die-cut, and inserted alongside an e-flute filler below for added strength and to prevent tearing.
