They’re here! All the way from Prague! This is the third edition of the deck, from Karen Mahony and Alex Ukolov. I sprang for the package of standard deck, mini (which has gold edging) and a special limited edition bag that is to die for. It’s backed with a luscious plum-colored velvet which you can see at the top of the bag. Baba Studio makes the most glorious bags of all sorts, they’re a real weakness for me (along with their Tarot decks).
While I was sifting through the cards to decide which ones to scan in to show you, the radio was playing “The Moldau” by Bedrich Smetana. How perfect. I haven’t even had a chance to do a reading with them yet, I’ve been so busy going through them one at a time. The cards feature a good deal of photography of Prague and the surrounding areas, which of course I love. I’m starting to think I was Czech in a past life. There’s so much humor in the cards, I love the diva on the Three of Pentacles, I can only imagine what she sounds like! It looks like a very readable deck as well, I’ll be taking it for a spin in the next day.
I just love that little tabby on the Ace of Pentacles!
If you want to pick up your own, there will be more. You can go here to order. I got in on an early pre-order back over the summer so have been waiting with bated breath for this little treasure to arrive. That it made it before Christmas is a sweet treat.
