Anybody seen this very precious one-off hand-made deck of TdM trumps before?

Simply stunning, but so is the price :~(

Very nicely done.

I like the black lacquer and the gold panels.
I like the way he combines his own stippled shading with the traditional woodcut spikes.
The skies are great.
Don't care for the back design, but I recognize that it makes the thing "his" and takes it a step away from straight tradition.

It will be interesting to see how much recognition art of this level gets within the Tarot Community.

WOW. That is stunning.

But - well, I wish the ART, sans gilding and case etc - could be made available at a price that was possible for ordinary folk... I'd buy one in a heartbeat. Failing that - that it would show up as an exhibition.... I'd travel a fair distance to see that.

He says that there will eventually be a digital version, for offset printing, at a reasonable price; the gold leaf panels replaced with yellow. But it will be a long time coming :~(
He did have one card, Le Bateleur, up on his flickr photostream, but seems to have removed it. I would have to say, I thought it was even better than the hand done version!
I'll keep an eye out and keep you all posted...
