Botanical. So maybe the Tyldwick is about the house and the Motley is about the garden?

His hand is just magic. This has a slightly Jane Austen atmosphere for me. I can imagine the Dashwood sisters laying it out after a little pianoforte and piquet.
I just thought of my old British classics as well! I hope the whole deck will keep this air of old fashioned elegance!

But with that name, I expected something more "textile"... but maybe it's just the deceiving first look and the deck will have a textile structure after all. At least the teaser pic which was in place of the two cards before did look like a piece of cloth.

I saw that and saw not a keyword but a Thothian title; success.

Not saying it's Thothy as I don't know. But Success is a Thoth title in the Disks suit

I recognized that, too. I'm not surprised... somehow, already the Tyldwick gave me a somewhat thothy feeling on some cards. 5 and 7 of Cups, especially.

I would love the Motley to be even more thothy. There are way too less Thoth-inspired decks out there.

That's true - it does appear to be the 6 of Disks - and I didn't make that connection, so thanks!

I would still rather not have titles, but that's me. What little we can see so far is lovely, anyway. I hope he reveals a little more soon.

That does look lovely. And - well, Laura - are you OK with the Thoth words ? Because if this is Thothy maybe it's "legit" anyway. If they are "just" key words - ugh.

If the artist was catering specifically to me? I'd ask to have no titles (Thoth or not).

But he's not, and first and foremost he must please himself, as any artist should in my opinion. So whatever he puts on there is fine. But yeah, Thoth titles would make me happier than keywords like LoS used to strew around the edges of their decks.
