  1. me toooooooo! Love Professor Mc... but... oh deary me! I simply can't choose!
  2. Ohhhh so difficult! Wish I could vote for my top 3 !!!!
  3. What a great analogy! You inspire me to ask more of it I like books, and there are a few tarot books I've read over repeatedly, but most of them I use for reference as well. I saw the kindle for GBP 6.50 on amazon.uk
  4. The Lars-Kristian Holmsen Tarot was first published in Norway. It is OoP but widely available for cheap second-hand. I have one. It's a nice set with a hardcover book and decorative box. Friendly and whimsical.
  5. I haven't done much with TdM in the past, so we'll see. I've always been a bit intimidated by non-scenic pips, so I've been surprised to learn how much visual information is in the 2 - 10 TdM illustrations. Is there a certain place for book reviews here? I looked around but didn't see... Outside the US, you can get the earlier self-published edition in softcover or kindle, Tarot: The Open Reading. The new one is available in some countries.
  6. I'm finally getting around to reading The Marseilles Tarot Revealed (a newer Llewellyn edition of the self-published Tarot: The Open Reading) by Yoav Ben-Dev (creator of the popular Conver Ben-Dov TdM, or CBD Tarot). I was charmed by his definition in the preface: "... I would say that, first of all, it is a work of art--not like a painted picture, framed and hung as a finished product that cannot be changed. Rather, it is a capricious set of images to be handled and played with, evolving over many generations through the collective efforts of deck creators and visionaries. It is a wonderful work of art, rich and flexible enough to span the entire range of human experience, from our innermost feelings to the external events of everyday life. And it is through this art, in the details of the card illustrations, that the magic of the tarot is revealed." There are so many ways to define tarot, but Ben Dov's statement resonated with me because I think for me tarot is foremost a work of functional art that I can get my hands on and use and experience in many layers, to what depth I may choose, from a game of solitaire to a journey into the nature of reality itself. So, I thought I'd share the quote here. (By the way, the book is an excellent deal at $10 for a full-color 360+ page TdM reference for your library.)
  7. I contacted Lizzie to ask if she planned to offer more moon cards. She said: "Yes I am. I have a couple of new options too, like a set with key words on them which is slightly larger. And a sparkly Magic Moon set! I am waiting for my packaging (should be here tomorrow) and then should be available again at the weekend."
  8. Quite a few in my collection. Me too on Dark Goddess, Wild Unknown, Celtic Shaman, Mary-El. Also Celtic Wisdom Tarot comes to mind, Rosetta, Jungian, Golden Dawn, and a dozen others.
  9. The Cosmic Woman, https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/653198337/the-cosmic-woman-tarot
  10. The Lars Kristian Holmsen Tarot, OoP but still less than $20
  11. I just came across this one on Etsy called Golden Hydrangea https://www.etsy.com/listing/689640993/golden-hydrangea-tarot-deck-may-20-june?ref=shop_home_active_1&pro=1
  12. Some of the Brady https://bradytarot.com/pages/the-art-of-the-brady-tarot Tarot of St Peterburg https://www.usgamesinc.com/Russian-Tarot.html There is a category for dark/gothic on AT with several possibilities http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/cards/dark-gothic.shtml Diary of a Broken Soul http://diary.tarotsmith.net/#gallery Tarot Noir Gray Skies, though that may difficult to find
  13. I had it happen just the other day when the Brady arrived. Very physical reaction. The Greenwood hit me like that. By the way, if you haven't selected which Marseilles book yet, there's an excellent full-color option on Amazon for $10, The Marseilles Tarot Revealed (Yoav Ben-Dov), very well regarded. Glad you liked the Thoth.
  14. @ilweran could you please post the name of the Etsy store, or a link? I can't seem to find them. Thank you! (Bazillions of moon cards on there!)
