The Fantasy Showcase Tarot is most definitely a ‘Collector’s Deck’ – its beauty, rarity (it is now out of print and quite hard to find), and nature define it as such. It represent a collaboration of a number of artist over a 20 year span from 1960s to 1980. A collector will love the diverse range of art styles found throughout the deck from Art Nouveau and cartoons to futuristic, pastels, and watercolors. A unique feature is that the deck does have extra cards - XXII: Separation, and XXIII: The Farrier; and four 'Ladies' as an addition to the Court Cards. These can be taken out easily though, and you can read the deck without them. Not all the cards have titles or numbers on them - though many of them you can guess very easily, either by counting Swords, Cups, Coins and Wands, or by looking for similar symbology to most traditional decks. To the Tarot enthusiast, doing this should be no problem (and quite a fun game to play too!) whilst for the beginner it may prove troublesome.
