ah, yes. I know these well! I recommended them to somebody here!

I love that 1948 Witches Oracle; they are very similar in style to the Playing Card Oracles.

And Nickey, I love those Aesop ones!

Some beautiful cards coming out of the closet here!

I just won a covolute of 60 decks for $30 on ebay. I think these are mostly cheap skat decks - the seller only showed the backs, this was from someone who collects with commercial advertisements - but I recognized a few funny ones like one which has caricatures of German politicians from the 80ies.

So far, I just have a handful of PC decks myself - here are my favourites, the Jeu de la Pucelle and a Mucha deck I got from the Mucha museum in Prague.

Isn't that Mucha one a Piatnik deck? Or was it one made exclusively for the Museum gift shop?

I finally found another Four Corners of the World...


it's not quite a transformation deck, but a 52 card with two joker deck with gorgeous aces and courts and semi-grayed scenes on the pips. I did find an old one,but the original Dondorf deck it's way out of my league. But this is a reproduction I found when out with a friend once and I finally found another using the Denver Pete's website.

I have a few older cartomancy decks, but they are easily found in reproduction. I was eying a blue owl Lenormand at Denver Pete's, but I like the rhymes and pictures from the French and Belgian versions of the old 1930's-to-1950's reproductions better...the prices were about the same as the $12.50 it would cost for the Blue Owl. It's a pretty thing, with the rhymes, playing card inserts and scenes!

There's also the funny Madame Red Hat--which would be a funny hat to eat if it's not a Ms. Lenormand in disguise! (I would not really eat it, unless it was a nice sugar cookie..). What is delightful is a prettily period lady looking cheerfully at a pig in one one of the funny pictures.
