Hi all,

my http://www.michaelsharp.org/Tarot/Tarot-Cards/Halo-Sharp-Tarot-Deck/ arrived today.

Does anyone else have this yet, and what do you think?

I'm pleasantly surprised about the printing quality and vibrant colours; not sure what to make of the computer generated art yet...

I've looked at the deck and some of the images are very nice, especially Joyful and the Master.  Some are a bit of a stretch.  I tried to order a copy, but their cart system must be down.

I like computer generated art, but none outdo the Portal Tarot, which is all time favorite. 

Thanks for the heads up on the new deck.  I appreciate every lead I can get!

A person can use computer graphics, but that doesn't always make them an artist.

Very, very true. And along that line, just because they don't use the computer and use pen and ink or paint, doesn't make them artists, or make what is procuced art.  Some are just attempts to make easy money, and that's it.  But along the same line, some tarots can be very simple and be quite wonderful.

Did you know the Portal Tarot has a companion, the Totem Tarot?  Both are still available from Tracy at http://home.earthlink.net/~dajax1/Glass-Tree/index.html  It has the same luminosity seen in the Portal.

I had bought books and didn't have the money for the Totem after all so had to cancel. I had bought books and didn't have the money for the Totem after all so had to cancel.
