Historical and Thematic Context
Inspired by the story of Mildred Payne, who was institutionalized for her belief in communicating with “imaginary friends”, this deck is a tribute to her legacy. During her stay at Fenwood mental hospital, Mildred used her self-created Oracle deck to connect with these entities, adding a layer of intrigue and mystery to the deck’s history.
The Midnight Edition offers a unique experience under different UV light conditions, especially at night. This interactive feature enhances the deck’s mystique, making it ideal for nocturnal readings and exploration.
