I discovered Tarot when all self respecting hippies had a deck. RWS or Thoth.
When I was living in a squat in London, I came across other decks, like Sheridan and Aquarian, and from there the fascination grew..
I got hold of the Kaplan encyclopaedia and later found a cornucopia of information and decks online. Sooo beautiful, sooo tempting, and then you get into the quest for the definitive deck... And here I am.
