hmmmmm... ok that gives me something to think about..

i can forgive the noseless empress,she looks very young and a bit silly........ but that teeny little emperor really challenges all my notions about that card, and im scared he might bite my ankles

you're not fully enabled, then. So think about this: it's going to cost you how much? And what is your income? And when an absolutely stunning deck comes along that you can't quite afford because of this one?

<smugly> Yes.

And as for me: I'm still hankering after that Diamond deck. The fact that it's a Rider-Waite deck should be enough of a turn-off for me, but I keep looking at it. Are the backs still that appalling tartan? is it too big for my stumpy little hands, or the central images too small to see? That's all not going to be enough. Hit me with something special.

No tartan tablecloth backs, no. The backs are an attempt at something kaleidoscopic (like the front). But they are very unmemorable backs. I was struck by how unappealing the typeset font is too. And so prominent. Like I said when I de-enabled myself (before buying it), just look at your mini-RWS down a toilet roll...

Aren't you signed up for the Creative Exchange in just a couple of weeks?! You would deprive your partner a possible "hit"? We do all this really neat spying on threads to see what people have been talking about!

I had it on my Wish List for a while, but deleted it recently. (Don't ask what happened next . . .)

Okay, okay, okay! Le Fanu missed, but this one hit. I'm not going to buy it. <sigh> The things I do for you guys ... (J___! Stop looking at me like that, with those big, disappointed eyes!! Keep your hands off my credit card number!)

I should have probably come here earlier, but it is too late now. I ordered the Universal Tarot of Marseille, mainly because I do not own a Marseille deck and because Lee Bursten wrote the book and I know if anyone can get me to explore the deck it will be Lee. It is ordered, so the damage is done ...

I cannot remember the backs of this deck, but what I can tell you is that the actual images are very very small. Cool borders, but very small image to read from. If you want the deck for reading you are much better off with a standard RWS, that is all this is with the addition of the pretty borders. I finally sold mine because I did not feel like using a magnifying glass to read with.
