That explains why I didnīt know. Hate that style. I obviously blocked it out of my vocabulary so as not to have to deal with it.

Ah, but that doesn't make it go away ...

Kunati version of Touchstone? Anyone got a de-enable for that?

And it's expensive for only 22 cards.

For that price...and only 22 cards, you should be getting...I dunno...a hand painted one of a kind box or something.

Phew. Ok...hope that worked.


(going off now to happily fondle my Phantomwise...)
Well thank you so much! I thought about this, and Yes I should wait this out. It's better to have 78 cards, but it's hard to wait...

Ship of Fools.....

It looks in scans as if it will be old-fashioned and papery and perhaps become more well-loved and attractive with use. No chance. It's made of cheesy shiny modern card. I hated it as soon as I opened the box. I traded it. Spare yourself the disappointment.

Soprafino.....

Yes, very nice, but the cards are a bit of a strange size and when you lay the cards out they look like old cigarette cards, and some people may not like the pointy corners. I actually didn't mind either of these things (although a deck like this ought to be a bit bigger really), but still never used it and never thought it was as amaaaazing as I thought it would be. And the ribbon on the cover soon looked really tatty and frayed right down. I traded it.

Im currently de-anabling myself on this one by thinking OK OK, letīs be honest, Im going to buy it one day so let us not deceive ourselves and - instead - embark upon honest, temporary de-enabling...

This is going to be around for years. Thereīs plenty of time to get it. Now is the worst time to buy it while everyone is gushing and making a big show of how lovely the Kunati is but they ARE glad they bought the Ltd Edition first (lest you forget)....

Be sensible; take it on its own terms.

I have a big reservation about this type of deck, which I donīt know whether you share. I have problems with these images I know well. Part of the Western canon of Art etc. Turn over a card and thereīs Katherine Howard... "O and thatīs a Caravaggio on the death card"... " and thereīs Anne of Cleves".

I canīt concentrate on a "good" reading when I know the provenance of these images... Too familiar. And "bent" to Tarot card meanings...

I never thought of that, very good point. A little late for me, unfortunately...

Actually, I'm having that problem with the Golden Tarot, too. There are just enough familiar faces...

Correct me if Im wrong but isnīt your avatar taken from the exact deck (Mitelli 1664?) which you asked to be de-enabled from last week?
