those were cute!

I found the Vanity Fair deck - well, info and pics of it - I think it is a pretty cool little transformational deck! Check it out - I love the way they turned the 9 of Spades into some hunters!

ETA - These would be fantastic oracle type reading cards, if they were available anywhere - and so cute! Laura, I think you'd love the crows and the cats in this deck!

I do! LOVE those crows. The tragic thing about WOPC is many of those decks are hard to obtain... that's a good thing for my wallet, though...

I went ahead and bought the Key to the Kingdom, though.

I know - those decks would be expensive, and hard to obtain - but it is still fun to dream! I love looking at all the pics on that site. So informative, too!

I am sure you will enjoy the Key cards, Laura - many of the illustrations have a small dark side to them as well, which makes them interesting to work with! Let me know what you think of them when you get them!

Oh, those are fun, Padma. Love the Ace of in that first link. And the captions are pretty amusing in the second link plus the watercolor is lovely.

I awoke early today and spent an hour trawling various playing card sites and links. Came away with some fairly main-stream picks...the blue-backed version of these though mine are unmarked. Will likely get the red-backed version, too. They're fun in a nostalgic-silly kind of way.

Also have my eye on these.

And avert your eyes, Laura though IIRC Padma was also part of that Corvid Tarot thread...



More info on that and a whole slew of other Corvid-backed decks here including a non-distressed version of the above in case that's not your thing

Oh yeah! Some great crow backs there. I especially like the crow and skull. Though I wonder if they really have the rights to all that art?

Somewhere around here I have a set of old Rook cards... they have an amusing corvid on the back.
