Subject: 	Shakespeare Tarot Deck

I'm not sure what tarot cards would actually do for me, as in matters of 
the occult there's nothing better than a black cat (and I have two for 
good measure), but perhaps a Shakespeare tarot deck might strike someone's 
fancy, at least as a paperweight.  On these cards, designed by A. Bronwyn 
Llewellyn and Cynthia von Buhler, The Bard himself is The Magician, Lear 
is Death, Feste is The Fool, and Hamlet is--what else?--The Hanged Man, 
while Elizabeth I is of course The Empress.  Several are illustrated at 
http://surinen.com/?p=48

Fair Winds Press (Gloucester, Mass.) was ostensibly the publisher of the 
"Shakespeare Oracle: Let the Bard Predict Your Future," book and cards. 
If so, the website has hidden this well, but the usual online retailers 
stock the kit, at prices ranging from $3.98 to $70.20; let Froogle divine 
the right price.

Cheers,
Al Magary
