Daily Draw June 7th, 2012
Today I am doing a comparison of foxes in my various decks due to the card and comments in this post. The obvious comparison is the foxes in the Lenormand decks but I found quite a few in other decks, both tarot and oracle.
Before I start on cards I wanted to mention one of my favourite graphic novels from The Sandman series, The Dream Hunters by Neil Gaiman with artwork by Yoshitaka Amano, I’ve mentioned it before on the blog but it illustrates a classic Asian myth about the fox lady. This comes up on some of my cards too, but the art in this book is so dreamy and evocative, perfect for the story. I recommend you buy it if you love foxes. The cover of my edition is reflective gold so hard to scan accurately.
The Shadowscapes Tarot had the most foxes, a whole suit of them plus a few extras.
I found a few on I Ching cards.
Several stories with foxes in the Fables of La Fontaine are illustrated in these playing cards.
And here are the wonderful Lenormand decks and their attractive foxes.

Lisa Hunt has painted foxes in several decks.
