Hi Kimber, I love the cards.  :ok Especially the Empresses, very strategic placement of the 'helping hand'!   :gi  If I had any complaints it would be that the cards are way too small, I would have likes a larger picture to enjoy. 

But definitely two thumbs up  :ok

Got mine - and I love it. 4 death cards is a winner for me at any time :ro even if I wasn't already mad for Kimber's work ! (Time to reissue the Toscano ??? not that I care; I have one :ok but on this card stock it would be awesome !)

Oh my. These are lovely!

Absolutely gorgeous.

Is the cardstock what you would call shufflable (riffle) or is this more of an art/collector's deck?

Very beautiful! :hp

I don't know why I'm not getting pinge when people respond to this thread - must be an issue with Gmail!

Yes; just PM me.  Domestic shipping is a flate rate of $4.95; international shipping is a flat rate of $12.95 to most countries. :m

Thanks, missy! :D

The cardstock is incredibly sturdy - it is playing card stock, which is why the deck is poker sized and not larger.  But I am very pleased all in all with the quality of the finished product.

It is a majors only deck, though, so unless you're using it along with another deck to clarify a reading, or doing a majors only reading, you'd probably prefer the Toscano, which is a full 78 cards.

I am squirreling aside nuggets towards a small print run, and every Taschen sold gets me a teensy bit closer to being able to print the Toscano.

"I get by with a little help from my friends..."

That's the plan!! I'm saving my shekels to finance a smaal print run of 50 copies.  Found a lovely back design for it, too!

Oh mercy. Discovering this forum was probably the worst thing to happen to my finances in a long time.

Kimber, any chance you'll have one left in say, a month? I have to chill out on the buying for a bit, but would dearly love to have a copy of this deck.

Thanks.

Oh my! The Toscano sounds lovely as it is true I have a preference for 78-card decks, but I WILL buy some Majors-only. Is the Toscano the same deck but with all 78 cards? I am looking but can't seem to find a thread on it.

No, it's a completely different deck.

Oh! Thank you. It is absolutely GORGEOUS. I LOVE it.

You are very talented!

So this one will be for sale soon? But only 50 copies?

I may need BOTH of these!

Well - you already know I will be buying it - so save one for me if I drop off line, or I may have to kill you.....

(I even got Kimber's permission to scan and laminate it for my own use, as I got a copy from before Kimber knew about fixatives, and I was terrified to shuffle it ..... :f)

Thank you!  I'm in the company of gtreats here on this list, so collage is my humble medium of offering.

I don't know about "soon"...I'm still saving $$ to finance the printing.  And yes, only 50 copies.:cc

Wow. Just ... wow. I'm new here and I'm just blown away by the creativity.

My hubby is an artist, I dabble in collage, and we've been talking for years about designing a tarot deck. Alas, we just talk - no cation.

And here you've done it. Bravo. Beautiful!

Any Taschen decks left?  And is there any way to put a hold on one of the Toscano reprints?
I would really like to get my hands on these decks, they look great!
These go straight to the top of my wishlist, I guess that the mass market decks will have to sit at the bottom and wait.:D
So many decks, so little money...:sd

Yes, I still have some Taschen decks available. :bl

LOL!!! Believe me, I can relate!!  Yes, just PM me with your pertikklers and I'll send you my paypal addy.

I'll take self produced decks over MM any day!!

I'm not in a position to schedule the print run of the Toscano at the moment, so I don't want to start a list. When I'm for sure it's really and truly going to happen, I'll start a new thread and those who are interested can reserve one then. :D

Thought I'd bump the original thread to let folks know I still have some Taschen decks available!

AND <drum roll, please> I am in the process of a print run of the 78 card Toscano deck! I will post a new thread as soon as they are available. :D
