October 8: Editor’s Note: Thanks to all who entered, and congratulations to our winners! All 25 winners have been notified via email. If you’re one of the lucky 25, please respond via email with your full mailing address by Friday, October 12, 2012 (sadly, if we don’t receive mailing information by that time we will need to select a new lucky winner). Thanks again, and congrats!

We’re doing it again! Llewellyn is giving away signed, uncut press sheets from one of our breathtaking tarot decks!

That’s right! We’re giving away 25 uncut, press sheets from the Witches Tarot, numbered and signed by creator Ellen Dugan and artist Mark Evans!

Ellen Dugan and Mark Evans will be at the Eye of Horus Metaphysical store in Minneapolis Friday, October 5 for a release party for the Witches Tarot. The release party DOES include door prizes, and since we know a number of fans are unable to attend, we thought we’d have a mini-release party online with our own door prizes! Prizes include 24 signed, uncut press sheets from the Witches Tarot, plus one grand prize that includes a signed, uncut Witches Tarot press sheet and a collection of three of Ellen’s books!

Now that we have your attention, please read on for all the details on how to win.

There are two ways to win:

1. Subscribe to Llewellyn’s Tarot Update

The easiest way to win is to subscribe to Llewellyn’s Tarot Update.

TWELVE lucky Tarot Update subscribers will be randomly selected to each receive one signed, uncut press sheet from the Witches Tarot.

If you are already subscribed to the Tarot Update, you’ve automatically been entered for a chance to win one of these heavenly pieces of art.

Not a subscriber? No worries! Sign up for Llewellyn’s Tarot Update and other monthly e-newsletters here.


2. Comment away!

Comment on this blog post, with your name, email address (will not be published), and brief message of why you want to win.

TWELVE lucky commenters will win!


One lucky winner will be chosen at random to receive the grand prize, which includes a signed, uncut Witches Tarot press sheet and three of Ellen Dugan’s famous books: Seasons of Witchery, Book of Witchery, and The Garden Witch’s Herbal.


What’s the catch? Well, there are a few contest rules…

To keep things fair, each person can only win one signed, uncut press sheet. So, if you are one of the divine devotees who comments on this blog post and is selected as a winner, you won’t be eligible to win by being randomly selected from our list of Tarot Update subscribers or vice versa.

Winners will be notified by email.

All winners must provide their name and mailing address within one week of being notified or we’ll have to pick someone else to receive the prize.

The contest starts today, Monday, October 1! Good luck!!

What a great contest! I’d like to win because these books would really round out my coven’s library, especially as I will be training 1 or 2 new candidates this year. Herbalism is not my strong suit, and since Ellen is an expert, that would really help me out. On a purely personal level, that uncut sheet would look really nice in my library/meditation space!

WOW !!!
This is a truly a PRECIOUS & STUNNING GIFT !
I am a novice and find myself truly attracted to this new deck. The uncut sheet would be so practical in encouraging me to practice more regularly, since I would be displaying it in my favorite room : my library
Thank you for letting me win :)

At the age of 65 I am finally trying to find the courage to explore my lifelong interest in Wicca & related subjects. Being raised as a Catholic I have always feared retribution if I admitted my interest, even to myself. Winning this beautiful piece of art might help me to be brave & continue my exploration. Thank you.

I’ve been using tarot for a year or so, and its such a wonderful experience for me. Its such a great feeling I get from using a very special sense of unity I get from it, my family heirloom deck is very special, but really, how often can you get a signed deck sheet? Its such an incredible offer, who could refuse such a gracious gift, if awarded it? I only hope I’m lucky enough to receive something so special.

Winning a sheet of the Witches’ Tarot cards would be nice. I’ve been a subscriber to Llewellyn’s since long before the I-net was available, as well as various other alternative sources. My purpose in obtaining a set would be to provide future generations with examples of artistry in magiqal pursuits, a purpose that would keep the keys to the other – perhaps more real – aspects of Life, beyond the humdrum mundane tedium of maniacal mechanical living.

I would love to win one of the tarot decks because every time I buy a tarot deck, I can’t read them well, so give them to friends, and they can read them instantly. I carry a lot of the same beliefs as Ellen Dugan, and hope that maybe, just maybe, this deck will be able to tune into my energy well.

Also, I’m a vet tech student and cannot continue to keep buying new tarot sets.

Thank you for this opportunity and Blessed Be!

Way Back there in 1996 my best friends mother learned that I was becoming a Witch. After many conversations over countless days and nights that I would spend there, she decided that this was not a phase and that I was serious about this path. One evening She introduced me to the tarot using her deck guess which one it was.

This would make a wonderful gift to a wonderful (unknown to me at the time) mentor and all round amazing inspiration.

I love being able to add to my library with useful books especially anything on herbs because I grow my own and want to continue to add to my knowledge in that area. As for the uncut sheet of cards, I’ve always been a card collector and uncut sheets are highly prized. I love the look of the cards and to be able to display all of them at the same is just a bonus. Plus I have a blank wall that in my craft room that is just yearning for something beautiful.

This is a beautiful deck. I would be very happy if I won one. We recently had to move because we lost our home, and during the move a box with cleaners, detergents etc. leaked onto a box with all my card sets and some special books, so now I have nothing. I have been unemployed for a long time and would like to know what’s on the horizon, but I can’t check because I don’t have any card decks at all right now. Many blessings to you.

I really hope that this contest has not ended. I love tarot. I wear your free online readings out sometimes. My father gave me the Raymond Buckland gypsy deck 14yrs. ago. Last year someone robbed the place where I was living. I moved, and that place burned to the ground. I live by the Rede, so I cannot figure out why it feels like I am being punished. My life has gone haywire. I think someone may be working against me. I need Divine guidance.

Hello! Thank you so much for hosting this contest! I am hoping to win because I am very new to Tarot, but unfortunately I am surrounded by people who would be very disapproving of my new practice. These same people are currently supporting me as I had to take a medical leave from college. For that reason, I cannot afford to buy my own supplies. Winning this contest would give me the opportunity to practice more! Good luck to everyone! :)
