The Oracle Creator

Published by Liminal 11, this is about the process of designing and printing a deck.

Other concepts that have influenced my oracle-making include:

the Journey Deck the Alleyman's Tarot Bones, Shells and Curios Playing Tarot Solitaire

There are also tons of excellent YouTube videos about creating your own deck. Some are about making a deck by collage onto cards, so that only a single unique copy exists, and some are about the process of designing the art for a deck, while still others are about the process of printing or selling or kickstarting a deck. I recommend browsing YouTube if you're interested in seeing a lot of different takes on the deck creation process and what options you have for it.
