I’ve been trying to decide which card I would most like to share with you from the Paulina Tarot and after much deliberation, have settled on the 8 of Wands. Seeing as it won’t be long before the deck is published, it seemed an appropriate choice.
I’ve known about this deck for a while after seeing it on Tarot Dame’s blog (left hand side, scroll down a bit), but it was only last night that I visited Paulina’s site and had a look through all the cards. And I can now safely say, without any hesitation, that this deck is utterly, utterly charming and quite stunning (and on my wishlist, surprise surprise).
My keen detective senses tell me that US Games will be publishing it and that it’s set for release this year, so I won’t have that long to wait. It reminds me of Mary Poppins, but not the film. Years ago I found an old book (pink-striped!) of Mary Poppins stories and they are every bit as whimsical and magical as this deck. (It seems the real Mary Poppins isn’t quite as posh as Julie Andrews would have us believe. Anyway, that has nothing to do with anything.)
