    What amazing timing for this video, just yesterday I was wondering how many decks there were, then today in my email this video arrives! I have the vintage Picture Book of AC and am looking forward to getting the Alchemy one. I think you aren’t shipping internationally at the moment though? And hurry and get that red-backed one up for sale, wow! Thanks Ana!
