Thanks, Planetmoon! I've very nearly finished a new deck (which I said I'd never do, but...) - you might like to have a look: http://TouchstoneTarot.com

Oh my goodness, the new deck looks absolutely wonderful, Kat! I've just bought the Golden myself, and I couldn't be happier with it. After a year of waffling over primary decks, I think my collecting days are over.

Out of curiosity...would you wager a guess as to the price of the hard-copy-print run, per deck? I feel better about having a physical copy of something, but I can't afford Big Collector prices.

Thank you for the link Kat. Again your images look sumptuous. I must say it is wonderful to be able to speak to the person who created a deck you have in your hands!

I did my card a day this morning and up came the Queen of Swords. I spent a good 30 just immersing myself into that card, so Lord knows how much time I will devote to the others! I write books and just looking at one of your cards gets the descriptive juices flowing.

Ok, so.. I fell in love with the Golden Tarot.. Really.

I am one that loves old vintage historical decks... And bought it AS SOON AS I was given the heads up about it. HAHA I love it. You're work is awesome. Very inspiring.

Now I just cant wait to have it come in the mail and just take in all its depth and imagery..

Matt

So about buying this wonderful deck... It hasn't come yet, and I am a little worried as to where I got the deck. It is from amazon but through a private vendor known as Super Book Deals. And I read up in the thread earlier that there were some fake replicas of the deck... Does anyone know if this is still happening? Or do you think I am gonna be safe with getting it from them? I hope I am.

Hi Breezy, I'm sure it will be fine. The pirate deck looks nothing like the 'real thing' - about half the size, Majors Only, no gold edges, German text. And the going rate for copies of the pirate version on eBay is around $100, so if they *do* send you that instead, you could resell it for a profit

Don't worry, Breezy - buying from Amazon resellers can take a *long* time, much longer than buying from Amazon!

Did you check out your seller's rating? I never buy from any seller with a rating less than 96-97% - some of them are in the 80%, which means that they get complaints in 1-2 out of 10 transactions.

Thanks for the heads up sravana.

Funnily enough, because I'm overseas, I have the opposite experience re Amazon vs Resellers. Amazon (unless you want to pay horrendous airmail fees) can take up to 3 months to arrive! They use a system that's even lower priority than Sea Mail - basically the J-Bag waits on the dock until there's 'spare' space in containers.

From some resellers, I've had my books/decks/DVDs etc arrive in Australia within a week - they despatch from whatever international warehouse has stock, eg I recently got a book on video compositing, in English, sent from Germany after ordering on Amazon US.

Good to check the rating though - many of the biggies have over 95%. If I could rate Amazon I'd be giving a lower rate than that for overseas transactions! Hasn't user-rating made a huge difference to us as consumers, I love it
