Kickstarter: Sufi Meditations deck! by Majnouna

I'm excited to announce I finally launched a campaign for this unique, Sufism-based meditation deck featuring my calligraphic designs.

The idea of gathering some of my designs together in a deck first came to me years ago, and I spent the past year thinking carefully about how to do this, as well as looking for the right texts and designing the missing words. The deck is now very close to completion, and this campaign is to produce a special edition of 100 copies, in a large format, with a luxury box and booklet.

The qualities and practices were carefully chosen for their applicability to everyday life, so that the deck can have a wide relevance without watering down the tradition. In place of commentary, each of them is accompanied by a Sufi story, a richer approach offering levels of interpretation.

The campaign will be live till February 13. Find out the full details of the project and rewards on Kickstarter, and please do pass on the word to anyone who may have an interest!

In other news, I don't know if any of you use Discord (I'm a newbie myself), but I have created a Majnouna channel and here's an invite: discord.gg/jKQGs2D . Come over to chat about art techniques, calligraphy, geometry, pigments, show your stuff, ask questions... It's still awfully quiet there right now, so don't be spooked :XD:

"One of the fundamental conditions of happiness is to know that everything that one does has a meaning in eternity" - Titus Burckhardt

I trained in graphic design and my body of work encompasses illustration, comics, tutorials, digital games and children's books. I was apprenticed to a master calligrapher for several years and I am now settled in London, UK, where I am dedicated full-time to my own calligraphy, going deeper into the potential of the ancient art of the Kufic script, which I also teach, while pursuing illustration for my own pleasure. I'm also an avid cook and baker, and all-time animal lover, with a passion for ethnography and a history of globetrotting.

You'll find my work on my dual website, Majnouna (calligraphy) / Cedarseed (everything else). My CV is here.
