You can see some here

The Viéville is very hard to find and a good example of the sort of thing you could get in France before the Marseilles pattern became standard. I look for it on ebay every week.

Which Egyptian? The Clive Barrett is excellent and sought after.

No collection is complete without at least one of Giorgio Tavaglione's packs.

My Chinese is the one by Jui Guoliang from US Games. The pictures on the minors are just decoration, but the trumps have been adapted to Chinese imagery, like making the Priestess a Buddhist abbess.

Thank you... I will go for the Viéville, although it's a reprint, of course. I haven't seen yet which Egyptian deck it is, the cover of the deck is almost orange and the design is very minimalistic. I will look into the websites that you suggested for further info.

I'm hearing a few people talk about the Barbara Walker these days. It's a weird one, but really unique.

Barbara Walker, I'll get it hopefully soon. The arcus arcanum deck, isn't that a bit hard-to-get, these days?

Here's a guide to Egyptian tarots:

A quick trip to Amazon shows that the Arcus Arcanum is getting expensive. I never thought of it that way — just as one of my packs!
