Hello everyone. I have been searching for the Ayrshire Witches Tarot for a very long time. I can't even find a full set of pictures of this deck. I recently purchased the 22 majors on eBay and love them but it drives me nutz knowing that The other 56 exist somewhere out of my reach.if anyone has information on this deck I would really appreciate the info. I would even be happy just seeing pictures of the other 56 cards.

I do own it. It cost me - a lot; I bought it from Frank Jensen himself. There were only 12 copies ever made - two editions of 6 each - mine is no 6 of the second run.
Info ? My database says:
Small cards in overlarge box. Highly erotic tarot deck, with imagery and symbolism inspired by Scottish Ayrshire Wiccan lore and practices. This set of tarot designs was apparently made by John Upton for use within a witches coven in Ayrshire in Scotland. The pen drawings were later coloured by K. Frank Jensen and printed in an edition of only six copies. The artwork is naive and in many places explicitly erotic. The designs reflect imagery of importance in late 20th century wicca or witchcraft practices. Thus the Fool, naturally to a pagan witch, is shown as a Bishop.

Actually I wonder how the majors alone were on ebay - as as far as I know they were never issued separately...
