August 6, 2007: This just in from Lisa:
"After a long, anticipated wait, I finally received my advance copies of the Fantastical Creatures Tarot directly from U. S. Games. The wait was worth it! The packaging and printing came out beautifully-- with lush coloration that really captures the essence of the art. The outer box is quite attractively designed and consists of a pull off sleeve and inner box, all adorned with finely layed out vignettes and meticulous text design. Inside is a securely nestled smaller card box along with the lavishly printed custom spread sheet.
I opened the smaller box and hastily unwrapped cards from the protective shrinkwrap. The 2.75" by 4.57" cards have a very nice heft and feel great in the hand. The art is reproduced beautifully and captures much of the detail that I worked so hard to include in the paintings. The card stock is heavy and the glossy protective coating looks like it will never wear off. This is no flimsy deck! The booklet is well printed and easy to read and use."
"I am very pleased with the quality of Fantastical Creatures and think tarot readers
and enthusiasts will be pleased with it too."
The Fantastical Creatures Tarot is NOW ON SALE at the U.S. Games Systems website.
