Wait - which Celtic are we talking about, MAgpie and Sapienza? The one I like? Pretty borders?

Oh, no - I feel some real deep-down de-enabling going on, not just my usual delaying tactics! I have long desired those borders.

I have a opportunity to pick up the Ukiyoe for around 28.00. I wish to be de-enabled as I can not see many faults in this decks art-work!

I had it, traded it to sixdegrees, happily. The Chinese /Jui Guoliang is a million times nicer/better.

As a side issue the black borders chip so don't expect a pristine used deck. WAY over-priced in my opinion.

Are you talking about the Ukiyoe? That doesn't have black borders ...

As for the Ukiyoe, TCO, it's lovely but overrated. Too little expression. The faces are all like those masks (Noh masks?) in Japanese theatre. You will be relying heavily on canned meanings for the Courts and many of the Majors.

The Ukiyoe doesn't have black borders. Are you thinking of the Feng Shui? Completely different deck...

It's the LS Celtic, where the Empress looks like a pig in a dress doing a jig. Not the pretty Celtic knot Celtic by Davis.

Don't get it unless you can get it very cheaply. It's not rare. People offload all the time on ebay (which should say SOMETHING to you).

As gregory says, good as inspiration for embroidery patterns.

Tough one.... I could say it is overpriced. I paid 10 UK pounds for mine. So $28 sounds expensive to me.

Unillustrated pips? Best I can do...

I paid $45-50, so it looks like a *deal* to me. That's what it usually goes for around AT.

I say: buy it! If you don't like it, then: sell it!
