I really like the Barbara Walker and will almost certainly grab one when it comes out. I was surprised to see that it only holds a 3.5 star rating. I wonder if that's because the artwork has a slightly 'dark' vibe (although, if anything, I would think that might improve a deck's rating - *cough* Deviant Moon *cough* ).

I love the Deviant Moon but find some the Barbara Walker cards far creepier. The nine of swords. Eek!

The BW is the sort of deck I can imagine being used as a prop in a 70s horror movie (despite originating in the 80s). I can picture a hooded figure slowly turning over the Ace of Pentacles as ominous music plays in the background... mwah ha ha ha!

I still think it's a cool deck though

But - yeah- great that it is available again. Sun and Moon I don't have and never warmed to, but I assume by tinning it, they know it's one of their best sellers.
I wrote an e-mail and asked for it to return a year ago, I didn't hear from them, and forgot about it until someone here pointed me to this news.

That Sun and Moon is totally getting into my collection. I had the deck and it is one of only two or three decks over the years that I regret letting go and the tin is so cute I can't even stand it.

I was dismayed by those wide white borders, too. So unnecessary! I don't demand it be absolutely borderless, but surely they could do narrow ones. As is, the art can barely be seen.

I love tin decks! And I've been wanting the Wonderland deck so that's a score. Thank you to the OP for posting this!!!!
It's a shame the borders look so big on the other two.

I took Winter of 2017 as somewhere between this January-March, so only a few months away. Hopefully that is what they are aiming for. :/

I think I will get the Wonderland. I always thought it looked like a fun deck but with a bite, and I'm curious to find out how it reads.
It's a good choice to make them available in a tin

The Barbara Walker Tarot. Bringing it back? In. a. tin. WHYYYY? (I love tins btw)

I emailed us games about another deck recently and I received the most ludicrous convoluted answer about a deck that IS in print. #vapingonthejob
