Stop it Le Fanu! I'm not to succomb to this!
But seriously, compared to the Golden tarot or the touchstone, how would you rate it?

Me either! I just spent almost $50 on another deck and can't - won't - do it again so soon. But still, as Homer Simpson might well say "Mmmmmm . . . blue!" I always was a sucker for that Maxfield Parrish vibe.

better than both! Much less sober, much less brown, much more intoxicating!

It's a beautiful deck Of all the fine art collage decks, it's the one that appeals to me most.

I don't have the Touchstone but I have the Golden Tarot and the Distant Past is SO, SO much nicer, hands down winner.

I like the looks of her Second Nature tarot too (in progress). You can see a few cards on her site and Facebook. It's quirkier, less fine art and more illustration art style. I would prefer titles more like the Distant Past (banners in the image instead of bars across the bottom) but that's a personal preference.

I don't have the Distant Past, but judging from the available online scans, I would say that while it looks like a very pretty and attractive deck, it doesn't come close to the Touchstone's thoughtfulness, nuance, and depth. That doesn't necessarily make the Touchstone better in all situations. There are times when I just want a nice, pleasant deck to read with, and the Distant Past looks like it would serve that purpose for me admirably. But the Touchstone, brown though it may be, gives me a lot more to sink my teeth into.
