I ordered from the Amazon US site on Sept. 9.  I just got an email saying I will receive it on Oct. 3 or 4, so apparently things are moving forward in terms of Amazon US availability.  However, the seller listed on the item page on Amazon is currently defaulting to a third-party seller named "Psalms 24," so if you want to order it from Amazon directly (in order to get Prime Shipping), make sure you go to the "Other sellers on Amazon" section in the right-hand column and click "add to cart" for the one that says "sold by Amazon."

Hi Lee! Good to see you here! I was wondering which of the new forums you'd be active in. :D (This is blue-fusion from AT). Thanks for sharing the info regarding Amazon's delivery. It also apparently is available now in BookDepository - which is a bit of a surprise since I expected Amazon to have the deck earlier than BD.

I wondered if anyone in the UK / Europe has received their deck yet here? I preordered it to come on the 1st September but had an email on that day that it was not possible to fulfil and would be postponed to now arrive between 20 Sep - 12 Oct  :o I did order the preorder just a few days before the 1st but I wonder if anyone has got the deck in Europe yet? Looks like there is not enough stock or distributed enough, Ly you are selling too fast!  :))

I haven’t got my deck yet, Dan. I preordered back in Feb! The date keeps getting pushed back but I’m hoping it will get here before Christmas.

I'm glad things are progressing with the Amazon orders - I imagine the decks are still on their way to various retailers. (Also, thanks again Lee for your suggestions when I was writing the deck's LWB! That was a big help - my mind was all over the place when I was drafting it, so your advice kinda helped narrow down the direction I wanted to take with the text.)


I've also discovered that there's already a youtube review of the deck! He edged his copy in burgundy it it looks really nice and classy (did a great, dynamic reading using the deck too): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B3lTeddgihY

They sent me an email, too...but when i tried to purchase it, it once again said "Temporarily Out of Stock"--it is getting a  bit frustrating!  :P  Happy for you, though, Lee!!! <3 It gives me hope.

They might be selling faster than the stores are stocking them. :-/ It's now out of stock in Bookdepository again! I really hope the deliveries to the smaller stores arrive so people will have more access to the deck. Hope you get your copy soon too!

Delivery date pending. We'll email you as soon as we have a delivery date.

At least i am now in the "queue"!  :P :D ;D

I received mine yesterday.  I'm pretty pleased, I ordered it on Sept. 9th and got it the 20th.  I hope you get yours soon MoonGypsy!

I love this deck!  It looks nice in scans but it's even better in person.  I'll be posting some observations over the next few days.

You are very gracious, kind sir!  I'm delighted to have been of some assistance.   :)

~waves at Lee~  ;D  ... Well if I read with Marseille decks I would really have to have this one.  It really is beautiful!

Hi Jewel, long time no see, happy to see you!

Some disjointed remarks --

The deck really is stunningly beautiful.  I love the way it somehow combines the faded-color look of antique decks with the bright and varied colors of modern decks. 

The faces on the majors and courts are full of life, expression, and personality, while also being a bit more pleasant than in some antique decks.

While being mainly traditional, there are little individualistic touches that are very welcome.  Some of the cards have starry skies as backgrounds.  The large star on the Star is a shooting star.  There are even some occult references -- the lion on the World is alchemically green.

For the pips, I very much appreciate the roman numerals at the top of the cards, so you can always easily tell if the card is upright or reversed.  As far as I know/remember, the only other decks to have this feature are the Fournier decks (TdM and Spanish Tarot).

One very interesting factor is that in this deck, the vegetation and scrollwork actually overshadow the pip symbols.  They really come alive, providing a great opportunity for those readers who like to study the floral decorations for inspiration.

Purists will want to note that not every pip card is faithful to what's now considered the norm -- for example, the 10 of Cups does not have a large cup on its side at the top.  Doesn't bother me at all.

I love the small size of the cards!  (I don't have a ruler near me - maybe 2 1/2 inches tall?)  Very convenient, and also unusual for TdMs.  The cards have a beige background which is "aged" with stains and spots (which are different for every card, by the way). 

This is my first USGames deck in a tin.  I like it!

There are so many layers and colors and details in the images, it's quite a production.  Many kudos to Ly for a tour de force.

I was think the same thing.  Was also thinking that I should buy it even though I don't know how to read it. 
If no one comes from the future to stop you from doing it, how bad of a decision can it really be?
