I would love to go to Sedona! We were thinking of making a trip {long} to AZ to see family. I wanted to swing into Sedona to check out all the cool things there. Any suggestions or places that I should see when I go? I always like recommendations. We probably won't go until the fall. I do wish I lived closer though.

That is so cool! Not that you were slow, but that you had time to look through you decks and enjoy them. I still haven't gotten time to open the package of the Prisma Visions Tarot 3rd Edition. I just want to make sure that I have time to not have to hurry through the cards. lol

The edges have a slightly rough feeling to them, but it's wearing down after some shufflings and handling. Also, when I was first going through the deck I found that the gilding on the edges tended to cause some of the cards to stick together. But they weren't terribly difficult to separate. So far I love the images, the colors are exquisite! They are quite detailed and feel quite alive. I'm actually going to be using this deck next week for the Deck of the Week next week and will have more impressions on it in that thread. I also posted some notes on both decks here.
Thanks love! I do tend to ask a lot of questions, so if I get on your nerves let me know. lol Wow a thick LoS deck! The ones I have are all super thin. I'm sorry about the edges being rough. Mine are all smooth at least. Gilding is beautiful, but it does stick. I wonder if the decks that stick the most are not given enough time to dry? I forgot which deck that I got that had gilding and it actually messed up some cards. I think it was an oracle called Psychic Tarot Oracle. I still use the deck, but it was kind of a bummer to have some cards messed up.
I hope that you enjoy using your deck for the Deck of the Week thread. I should sign up for that sometime also. I am not sure why I haven't yet. lol

I will look for it if you do. I hope that you love it!

So far {knock on wood} that is my experience also. I don't shuffle like a poker player as I don't use reversals, so maybe that helps?

I am interested to see if I like it as well as I think I do. lol I have decided because of some weird cards in the 78 Tarot Carnival that I won't be purchasing that deck. It has a child up on the 10 of Swords card. Just...NO. lol
