The Dust Bunny Lenormand
36 cards, rounded corners, 2.5" x 3.5" with cover card and key to card meanings.
My friend Kirsten asked, "Why dust bunnies?"
I told her: Oh, you know, that stuff you find under the bookshelf that the cat's been playing with that you pull out and say, "Hey, Tony kitty, we could knit us a whole new cat with this." Like that doesn't happen to everyone, right??
And I love quotes from guiding lights like Mary K. Greer: "It's so well-done and beautifully produced. Marcia - you did have to include a housecleaning card, didn't you! Grrrrr."
And Gina Pace: "Good job with the cards, they practically read themselves!"

The Art Postcard Tarot is sold out. It's the second in my study of antique postcards from 1900-1909. It is a deck of 78 cards, plus a “Happy Squirrel” and a cover card. All images were taken from real antique postcards from that time; the images themselves may be older, but somewhere someone thought it would make a good visual to send their message. The artwork is generally light-hearted, even when dealing with difficult themes. There are portraits, serious art, cartoons and illustrations.
You may be able to find a copy for sale on eBay or via private sale. Thank you, everyone, for your enthusiasm and support for this deck.
May 2012: I am honored that my Art Postcard Tarot has been selected as the Year 9 Deck for use by Yeshe Rabbit: Way of the the Rabbit, My Tarot Project Year 9.
The first edition of the Victorian Trade Card Tarot is available in its second numbered edition of 100, the third of my limited edition decks. It too is a deck of 78 cards, plus a “Happy Squirrel” and a cover card. The images on this tarot were taken from trade cards used as business cards between 1870-1890. Trade cards were an interesting phenomenon that had a short but exciting life in the history of advertising. Even during their own time, they were collected and pasted into albums as novelties. They came in all shapes and sizes and, unlike our business cards today, were not personal contacts at a company but rather advertised a business or product in general. Again, I’ve aimed for a light-hearted theme. Often the pictures on the trade cards had little to do with the product being advertised. Looking at some of the ads on television lately, I think we may have come full circle!
The cards are small 2.5” x 3.5” and have rounded corners for ease of handling. The cardstock is 120# with what the printer describes as a “gloss” finish. To me, the finish is more like satin. It is smooth and untextured. It is a limited edition of 100 decks, each deck signed and numbered.
The cover card shows a wizened fortune teller and her young clients. Is she telling them to listen to her words or explaining that she has to eat, too? The Emperor is advertising ham even if the pig looks more like an elephant. The Devil is demon temptation, especially for the shoe-lovers among us. Who hasn’t heard that little voice over the left shoulder whisper, “But they are so YOU!” The 6 of Swords illustrates how the picture often had little to do with the product. The advertising for tea is seemingly disconnected from our well-dressed travelers, unless you consider Mom needed that extra shot of caffeine to get the boat going. The card backs are taken from a Victorian Trade Card advertising a cough remedy showing a young girl and a white dove. They are vertically symmetrical so that reversals are not transmitted in advance.
