Well there you go - the whole thing has warped your memory (or mine, but who's counting.) Clearly a thoroughly dangerous deck as well, then and one to avoid !

HALP HALP!

I have my shopping cart ready to go at tarotbear's lair, with the deluxe thoth (it was unavailable the other place) and this LOVELY french flower tarok!
http://www.tarobearslair.com/tarotfr...otnouveau.aspx

I have no idea what the cards really look like, but I NEEEED it!
The problem is that it's over $70 for both decks with shipping - waaaaah!

You do SO not need that deck. I have it and it is NOT YOU; it isn't even me but it was a gift, so.....

Can you cancel ?

Tell me more about the deck. Approx what size is it, and what do the number cards look like (I haven't hit the order button yet).

It's the size of your average LS deck. The pip cards are.....

PLAYING CARDS ! NO PIX OF ANY KIND.

Al the cards are double headed.

HERE are some images. They are a king and three of the MAJORS, for pity's sake. It is a game deck, pure and simple.

I assume you have now gone off it ???

I HOPE so ! This is a genuine de-enable ! Even I would NEVER have bought it for myself, pretty though the flowers are.

However if your finger is REALLY twitchy for it, Somerville has it for less

You WILL regret it.

Cards are "in" today and it seems that everything that has at least 20 concepts is available as a set of cards (check your bookstores and toy stores and you'll see what I mean). Once you go from tarot to oracles to playing cards you might as well be collecting anything.

I started down that road and stopped fast. What's the point.

Well, I'm in the US, so Somerville wouldn't be as good of an option.
Thanks for the link - while I do love the majors as flowers, I thought that the face cards might be in the Nouveau style. but no, just the same grumpy King as in a regular playing card deck. I HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFULLY DEENABLED!!!
Wooooo!!!!

I do have a handful of playing cards that I like (I'll refrain from mentioning them here in the de-enabling thread...), but you're right. One could go absolutely nuts collecting playing cards.

So, I ordered the Thoth, and didn't order the French Nouveau tarok. (but I also ordered the on-sale Universal Wirth from TG OMG)

Selling tarots doesn't work - the paypal money just burns a hole in my pocket and I buy more. sheesh. (though I did manage to make a nice transfer to my checking before I bought any more!)

I'm sitting here guiltily with postal wrap and bubblewrap around me as evidence, and a lovely pile of the Scapini Bacchus, the Wang/Regardie GD and the Klimt deck. I'm still feeling how it made me feel. My whole body is trembling with a terrible mixture of excitement, dread, lust, satisfaction, indulgence and horror. (At my bank balance, y'understand).

No, Nisaba! Bad girl! Down! Now!

78 card study? Not a problem. <picks up new deck at random, thumbs through deck card by card, seeing every image in a few minutes> Done. Now I get to buy a new one, right? And oh, there are two other decks here, if I do them too in the next half-hour, do I get to buy three more?
