    Lo Scarabeo Anima Antiqua Line

    Oh nice! I never bought directly from LoS. On Amazon, the Tarocchino Montieri is only released on September 8, 2020.
  4. Today
  5. This week I'll be using the Tarot in de Herstelde Orde (Tarot in Restored Order), created by Rob Docters van Leeuwen and Onno Docters van Leeuwen; it was published by Servire. The second deck I'll be drawing from is the Oracle of Kabbalah, a deck and book set created by Richard Seidman and published by Thomas Dunne Books. As an added resource, I'll be using The Hebrew Letters by Rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh. Today's draws are the Knight of Swords and Dalet: Dalet painting by Dani Antman In our world, there are people who act as philosophers (who like to investigate and discuss the truth), judges (who slice away deception so that truth is clearly seen), and knights (who defend and uphold the truth). Knights of the Sword are moved to action, especially where righting wrongs are concerned. These are the folks who risk bodily harm, loss of freedom, and insults to their character to protest and work for change. Thank goodness for their courage; their actions are often what wake others from their complacent cocoons. Dalet means 'door,' and Ginsburgh suggests it represents a sense of selflessness that comes from recognizing that none of us permanently possesses anything. The door of Dalet is the gateway to humility. Through it, we find kinship with others rather than focusing on the things that separate us. The selfless courage of this Knight, idealistic and impulsive as he might be, is based in the belief that everyone deserves a fair shake at life.
  6. Hello everyone! Gregory gifted me the Medicine Cards by Jamie Sams and David Carson, and the companion book via ebay awaits at the post office box, so that my deck this week. thanks vg.

    Independent Pam-C scan edition?

    Here's a thread about the NICE one. I know I posted some cards from the awful one, somewhere. The Siren Imports one is lovely. The other - is not.

    Independent Pam-C scan edition?

    That looks like the rip-off one several of us on carto (I think) bought last year. I would have said the Smith-Waite was well out of copyright so that's not an issue - but there were two cheap ones circulating last year - one was actually nice and one definitely wasn't. The colouring was DIRE. Just so you know.

    Hello and welcome @jupiterchild
  11. This was really helpful especially for online purchases! My first Rider-Waite deck seemed like a counterfeit since I got it for a discounted price. I didn’t know any better at first. Although I’ve seen a couple who used small-sized decks so I didn’t think much until I was observing the prints on the card itself. Still couldn’t let it go as I learned understanding tarot when I didn’t have any other deck to use and learn from. Somehow, I’ve found a local store that sells authentic ones and have been buying from them since. Plus, I have a weakness for gold trimmings on cards which I don’t think counterfeit ones would have printed on them.

    So excited to interact with everyone and learn from you all! I’ve just been reading mostly and now I wanna be part of this community.

    Independent Pam-C scan edition?

    Indeed $19 for a deck with a premium linen cardstock it looks too good to be true, but maybe true. These days I'm suspicious. For the cardstock I noticed that it is 350 gm; I have a deck with a 350 gm cardstock (the Rackham on Kickstarter), and the cards are a bit too thick for me (I checked that and saw that this deck is now sold with a not glossy linen 310 gm, so I regret my glossy Kickstarter finally, well, it's another deck and story). ETA: read the first reviews on Amazon there is a problem with the cardstock, not really premium apparently (and not 350 gm too). And this below (while there are as well happy customers):

    Hi friend! I'm looking into this. I'm going to email you at the email on your account with a new password. Please change it as soon as you are able to.

    Independent Pam-C scan edition?

    I have not been buying new decks lately, but this one on Amazon got my eye: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/0646804286/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 It seems to be some kind of independent printing of a Pam-C scan, as far as I can tell. (No big connoisseur, moi; I just used these as comparison: https://www.wopc.co.uk/tarot/rider-waite/rider-waite-early-editions.) The backs show a sort of mandala on an indigo background. The cardstock is linen, though a bit on the flimsy side, and easily scratched, and the finish is not exactly glossy (and I don't think there is any kind of lamination at all), but there is some kind of semi-glitterish effect when the light hits the cards directly, that does not seem intentional and could be due to the ink used. It's printed in China. Nothing too fancy, but not too badly done, for the price. The creator and seller is an entity called Miriyan, and this is their website: https://miriyan.com/

    Hello from the UK

    Hello @TarotHen I'm just starting out but I'm already a collector! I should probably stay away from enabling threads

    Hello from the UK

    Welcome to the community, @TarotHen You’re in good company here - lots of deck collectors. There is a specific thread you can go to if you want to be enabled to purchase a specific deck, or, if you want to be de-enabled, there’s a thread for that, too. Those threads are great for a laugh as well, as the folks here are very creative at coming up with reasons why or why not to purchase a deck

    help!

    I've registered and posted before and my display name is dust. I'm trying to reset my password but don't get an email -- not even in my spam folder. It's the same email I used to register so I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Thanks!
  21. Good luck! I hope you do really well.

    Hello @jupiterchild welcome to the TT&M Family
  25. Very cool! That 10 of Swords is awesome. I was successfully de-enabled on her other decks, but maybe I’ll get this one.
  26. How exciting! I do love her work.
