That's a beautiful story.

At the time, Shotokan Karate and Aikido. Currently, my focus is on Taiji (Old Yang style) and Kenpo Karate, with a touch of Okinawan Karate. Regarding Karate and Aikido, Rave and I sometimes enjoy an exchange (of blows) on another forum.

I would probably do nothing more than ask her how I can help her, unless she tried to pull me into a Wing Chun chop.

For the information of Star-Lords and Ravens - There's no "pulling" in Wing Tsun.
Only the swift forward and true motion, like a flying arrow.
( you've brought back lovely memories of my old Aikido sensei, now 81 and still teaching up north in
Staffordshire).

gregory could you possibly beg said possessor of this deck to post photos?? (or something).

I'll ask. There are some on Tarotgarden, of course.

Maybe I can make a copy for myself someday, with transparent acrylics over foil...should I ever have too much spare time on my hands.
Um hows about a special foil edition of your next colour TM deck hint hint with extra sugar on top.

Is it even possible to shuffle it without the foil coming off?

Can anyone who has seen these in person describe them? Is the card collaged with pieces of painted or colored foil, or is the card itself made of foil or embossed foil? I'm assuming each set of these was made by hand...

Tarotgarden says:

Quote:
Amazing set of Thoth Tarot major arcana cards, painstakingly overlaid by hand in colored foil, giving the cards a breathtakingly radiant appearance. Since much of the effect is achieved through the interplay of light with the metallic materials, the scans accompaying this listing do not fully capture the end effect of the process.
