Cats

Japanese pretties (NOT manga)

Greenie Thoths, until I find one as green as the one I have with a card missing, and another card missing that I gave to someone else because I already had one card missing, as you might say !

I have a lot of sub-category mini-collections. I still have to like the deck to buy it though, even if it falls in one of my "groups".

Amerigo Folchi
Animals
Dark and Gothic Decks
Erotic
Fantasy
Literature
Pagan
Science Fiction/Science
Decks with cars and motorcycles, especially racing vehicles, but not limited to them.
Decks I find humerous
Some Japanese decks, including Manga
Pre 1982 decks
Minchiate and other historical decks with a few Marseilles thrown in.

I have a couple of other illustrators I collect also. Erotic and car decks are mainly for DH - if I can show him some bareness or motorized vehicles he's happy. I have a slightly twisted sense of humor, so what I find funny most people would be going, 'that's not funny!'

My historical decks might be considered a subcollection, but actually I have scant interest in any other than the big three: RWS, Thoth, and historical, not clones thereof.

I suppose I have a subcollection of sorts, of Thoth and Golden Dawn based decks. I didn't do it on purpose really, but I have the Thoth, Hermetic, and working its way across the great state of Massachusetts is the Rosetta Tarot, which I think should arrive by tomorrow.

My existing sub-collections are as follows (and some decks may appear in more than one):-

a)- a collection of decks by or styled on well-known
artists;
b) - cat-decks;
c) - Magic Realist Press decks
d) - decks with gilded images or edges;
e) - Australian decks;
f) - mini-decks,
g) - a collection of Visconti-variants;
h) - decks with the worst cardbacks in the world
(proudly headed by the Blue Moon, the Mind-body-
Spirit version of the 1JJ and the Cary-Yale Visconti;
i) - signed and numbered limited editions;
j) - erotic decks;
k) - naive decks,
l) - historical decks
m) - a number of decks with creative input from
Luigi Scapini,
n) - science-based decks.

In addition to these, I have belatedly noticed that I have had another sub-collection sneak up on me unannounced - a collection of decks by John and/or Caitlin Matthews. I will have to update my profile to reflect this. Gosh, I wonder what letter I'll use to categorise it?
