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
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.
