Mountain Dream Tarot: Commemorative Edition now available.

I have just finished a commemorative version of my photographic Tarot deck: Mountain Dream Tarot. 2020 marks its 50th anniversary. This is a digitally printed deck which was created by scanning the original prints that were used to create the 1st edition published in 1975. A minimal amount of editing was needed to make these cards fit the new aspect ratio of commercially printed digital decks, otherwise, the appearance of that ground-breaking deck has been maintained. It can be ordered using Paypal from my webstore following this link: http://www.beanettles.com/store/?page_id=348.
