Interesting, isn't it? I spotted it earlier, myself.

And I bought the first copy the seller listed - a plain black & white copy at a slightly lower price - you can see some pictures here: http://www.etsy.com/view_transaction...ion_id=6942266

Edited to add: Just for informational purposes (I like to be complete about these things), the copy I linked to sold for $30 USD, and the copy rota linked to sold for $40 USD .

My initial impression - which could be entirely wrong - is that the seller listed the first copy with a plan to "wait and see" before listing a second copy . . . which the seller did, less than a day after I purchased the first copy. And then the second copy sold pretty much immediately after the link was posted here . . . so I wouldn't be at all surprised to see a third copy appear for sale soon, and so on as (or if) they continue to sell.

Gorgeous, love the presentation. And it's (so far) quite affordable!

My copy is here!!!

Lovely presentation . . . the bag fits the deck quite snugly, and is very well made. The deck and bag also arrived in a larger cotton drawstring bag that, I suppose, served to help protect it during shipping.

So....the deck. Very nicely made. Larger than a regular USG deck, but smaller than the Druidcraft - a very nice size to show off the art, in my opinion, but still leave the deck easy to handle.

22 cards plus a title card, unsigned and un-numbered. Comes with a very nicely printed fold-out "LWB" that includes a suggested 5-card spread.

Strength is VIII and Justice is XI. All card titles are traditional (in the RWS sense).

No coating or lamination. Square corners (not rounded). Off-white card stock with a very smooth, matte finish. Love, love, love the paper chosen for the card backs - a marbled black and white and grey and gold. The gold has a metallic sheen that is quite pretty.

Mine is plain black and white, the first copy sold before the seller started listing copies with hand painted colors added. I have to say, I really like it in black and white.

And the art . . . very modern, very feminine - women are featured in every card (the Hanged Man is a woman, for example). The Lovers card does show a man and a woman, though. Lots of breasts, but pubic hair is shown in the Lovers card (and perhaps elsewhere).

Overall, most definitely worth the $30 I paid . . . it's charming and unique and quite nicely presented. I'm very happy with it!
