Question Tarot of the Origins? - eBay


Anyone know anything about this deck - including why it comes at such a high price?

I bought a copy at a reasonable price - it might have been from the Book Depository, although I am not sure (I don't think they have it in stock at present). But it seems to be available quite cheaply here:

The images are raw and powerful. I like it, but have never felt any desire to use it.

The artist Sergio Toppi has a distinctive style:

That's so cheap, Patrick! Wonder if they ship to Australia...? I've only ever seen it at extraordinarily high prices and just assumed it was out of print. It's been on my wishlist for ages though

It might have been Waterstones where where I got mine. They seem to sometimes stock decks that are fetching silly money elsewhere.

My finger is hovering over the "submit order" button... Ack, as broke as I am at the moment I think I'd be crazy not too considering how hard to find/ expensive it is now. I can always not eat for the next few days Thanks for the heads up on Waterstones, Patrick! Will defs check back there for other HTF things

I wonder whether it's one of those occasions when they don't actually have it in stock and think they can get it from LoS within the cited 4-7 days.

It has been OOP and HTF for a while now. Not impossible but it is rarely very cheap. That one on ebay for $75 is actually quite cheap (though there's one hour to go and no bids, crisis and all that).

An odd deck. Probably the oddest deck I own. I just cannot get my head round it. I lay it out and it just screams "bizarre." And the artwork feels so intrinsically, apocalyptically depressing. Makes me think of dark, wet Sundays afternoons and the world about to end...

I had it on order at Waterstones for months before they canceled the order.

Maybe I was lucky. I remember it seemed very expensive, but then found a new, cheap copy online. I can't remember where for certain. This must have been within the last two years, maybe less.
