May you be psychic in this statement I'd LOVE a glittery BCat.

Unfortunately I only have my mobile's camera at hand right now, and daylight is fading, but I still wanted to post some pictures of the LE. Though the quality of the photos is not exactly great, I hope it gives some credit to the overall feeling.

I also took a comparison shot of the High Priestess, left to right is 1st, 2nd and new LE. Though several cards have been changed slightly, the deck still is very close to its predecessors, but with an added depth and some thoughtful improvements.

The last picture is the scarf, for those interested. The size is around 65x65cm, so it is easy to drape and the silk just makes the colors pop out. I wore it with jeans and a white shirt yesterday and was asked by several people about the scarf.
Niiiice improvements and attention to details. Thanks for posting the pics and for the info about the scarf.

Oh, NO, dear, I'm not being psychic at all. I'm just reading the signs --and apparently starlightexp is reading the same things I'm reading.

It wouldn't be good for me, because I wouldn't be able to pass on that one, either, no matter how expensive. I missed out on the Gold Cats, you see....

Nice pics, Linfang! You can really see the metallic highlights. It IS a gorgeous deck, and the cards are indeed a lot larger than the other editions.

And the scarf is actually very nice.

Does that mean they won't sell to new customers? (I'm an old one, just wondering) How unusual way of doing business (maybe they want out of it).

This just seems.... bizarre. I hope I am simply misinterpreting the message.

Like I said in my last post, I hope I'm misinterpreting the message, but the way I read it, they might want to restrict their customer lists to include only those customers who do not complain about the products or customer service. I seriously hope I am wrong and it is meant some other way entirely.

I find the Prague absolutely breathtaking in each and every one of its iterations, but it doesn't look like it would read for me. The Cats, though, silly as they look, read like a dream.

I would expect an exquisite box really
I suppose by then they will have solved the box thing --changed vendors or whatever they need to do. And, while I'm the first one to agree that you could basically get a Toyota for the price of the LE, I don't know if I'd be able to resist the siren (or should I say the meowing?) of those glittery kitties...

When the time comes... I give you leave... to laugh in my face as I cave

To stay on topic; watched Kelly from TTIS's vid and the cardstock on the standard Prague looks delicious.

I don't know. I thought it might have been the sort of thing posted when one is tired and cranky but it is still there today. It's at the head of the thread on the box issues.

I can remember when they were here on Aeclectic making the first Tarot of Prague. I suppose we have all changed.
