"Baba Studio" is the husband and wife partnership of Alex Ukolov and Karen Mahony. We were first brought together by our love of old stories, strange symbols, fragments of images... and here in Prague we're surrounded by art and architecture of the Baroque, Rococco, Victorian and Art Nouveau eras. We publish our tarot and oracle decks as "Magic Realist Press" (see our publishing site, www.magic-realist.com).

Alex and I do all our own graphics, illustration, artwork, print and fabric printing. We also do the design - shape, pattern, fabrics etc, for the bags. Most of our sewing is done by expert small (one is a single woman, the other is two women in partnership) professional textile studios in Czech Republic with whom we have worked for years.
We now have one full -time and two part-time helpers, who deal with order processing and sending, the production of our prints and textiles (for example, making the individual labels that go on our more special items) and on things like photo-shoots and social media. Between us, we speak English, Russian, Hungarian, French and Czech - which makes for some interesting dialogue!

We have a policy of avoiding the use of mass-made "print-on" bags as we just find them poor quality and dull. Where we use base bags (at the moment just for our messengers) these have been entirely and exclusively designed and specified by us and made to order only for us.

• Our work has appeared in many magazines and twice on US television - Tarot of Prague is shown in the "Miss Fortune" episode of CBS' Ghost Whisperer, we were quite stunned!
