I received the Animal Totem Tarot in the mail yesterday and it was fine except for one card which had part of the surface ripped off. I wrote to Llewellyn to ask for a new card but as these things go I may not have any success in getting the card replaced.
Of course the rubbed off bit is right where you notice it, above the horse’s head! It also would tear further were I to try to shuffle the deck. It has put me off buying any of their decks again.
Llewellyn used to have such nice decks with heavy lamination, but this one feels really cheaply done, and the well for the cards is too tight, I can hardly get them in and out. That’s a shame because this is a nice deck, I really like the artwork.
EIGHT OF WANDS
There is a such a thing as having too much energy. He went so fast he ripped the sky.
While browsing in a garden centre gift shop, I saw a box I thought would be perfect for this deck. Originally, the owl’s eyes were painted white which made them look a bit cartoonish, so I repainted them with a mix of raw umber and black. There are a bit restless since they feel they can’t have their deck until the damaged card gets rectified.
