Day Two of the Tarot Challenge. Today's question is:
What was your first deck and why/how did you get it?
My first deck was the Sharman-Caselli deck (created by Juliet Sharman-Burke, illustrated by Giovanni Caselli, published by Connections). Why this one? I first looked at the Rider-Waite-Smith deck but couldn’t connect to it. My first tarot friend, who I met on-line but turned out to live in the same city as me, had the Sharman-Caselli so I borrowed that for a bit. I found the images more accessible – I’m a visual person, so being able to connect to the artwork is important for me. So off I trotted to a local bookshop....and the rest, as they say, is history.
And the history continues, with question Three - soon to be answered!
