I get the feeling someone is saying 'You people will never get a vintage Rider deck with Roses & Lillies backs' lol....

I think we should have boycotted this deck as a message to that certain company. First off, they should have refund everyones money who purchased a made in Italy 'Original Rider Waite' deck and then produced a proper vintage reissue in place of it.

Lo Scarabeo could fix this problem by removing the extra titles from their forthcoming Rider deck and putting in the original handwritten ones back in. If printed in the same manner as their 'Ancient Italian Tarots', I think they have a runaway bestseller.

I really like this new back design and I think it's a good idea for a Centennial deck to have a new back design which pays homage to Pixie Smith.

I ordered this set last week and I'm really, really looking forward to using it.
