Hi

I just wanted to draw your attention to the book I have published recently, intended to accompany my Chalice Deck. You can see samples of my cards here:

http://webspace.webring.com/people/wa/arachnoidcritter/tarot.htm

Adam Mc Clean also publised the major arcana a few years ago. I have uppdated some of the cards since then and the full deck is available as photocopies on demand from me.

Heres is a link to my book then:

http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/2150388

I have not included any photos of the cards inside, thpugh that may change in the future.

Do tellme what you think if you do visit!

Unfortunately there are a huge number of broken links and internal server errors in your web site.

There are some cool cards though...:ro

Glad you liked my cards, Sumada. I checked all the links to my cards after your comment and the only problem I found was with my King of Wands. I shall be onto that. Not sure where theother broken links might be now. I do not really use it much, ive out my Reb Bubble site to show off my artworks as a rule.

Still curious to know where the problems are on my old website. I will update it a littlethis weekend.

Anyway, one book is already sold - I would still love some more feedback: what kinds of tweakings, additions in the futre might make this book still more appealing?

Thanks.....

Hi Lynda,

The broken links come up when ever you click on "Return to My Tarot Card Designs (Page 1)", which is at the bottom of all the individual card pages accessed from Page 1. You get taken to a different Page 1 which is formatted differently, and every link on that new page is broken.

(However, if you use the back button from any individual card page accessed from Page 1, you do return to the original Page 1, which of course does work.)

Page 2 seems to work fine.

Very generous of you to make your entire book available on line, however I am overloaded with other reading at the moment, so I'm sorry I have only scimmed through it it so far. I am always interested to see the author's order for the trumps, in particular the positions of Justice and Strength, and also the elemental correspondances. I see on page 46 you state that the "Kings... represent each of the four elements at their most differentiated", but do not actually say which is which. Niether can I find it stated anywhere else, but perhaps I just missed it.

I noticed a few typos too, eg: on the Contents page - Tarot as a Meditational Ad (should read "Aid")

Cheers,

Sumada

Hi Sumada

Thanks for your comments. I have been revising my site and have managed to sort out the link to the King of Coins, bit still don't know about the other things. The links to the cards on Page 1 seem to work, the link to the second page to, but on the 2nd age the link noe does notwork.I have been having trouble sorting out the main page, which I do not seem to be able to change.

It was not generosity that impelled me to make the whole book available, as far as I know  it is not actually possible to see the whole book. But I may restrict that. I think it is showing the whole set of cards that is not a clever idea these days, for obvious reasons. Other people might disagree with my setting out Swords as Air and whateverr, which I did do do in the text.

I assiduously went through the typo speller on Booksmart, alas it does not pick up on the wrong words. Thanks then for the heads-up there.

Since there is a book does that mean the 78 cards deck is/will be available for purchase? Thanks,

Rylla

Hi Rhylla

The cards are only available from me at the moment. I might use one of the card-,aking sites to get a pack done up there, bt right now I make up copies of my Pack on demand, from home.

I have posted elsewhere on this, maybe in the wrong place - apologies if I have.

I ordered a proof book of the book and made sure the titles are where they are supposed to be and tidied up one or two other things. This version is also more economical....
