Last two decks of Ludvig tarot in stock!

The beautiful Ludvig tarot deck by Zsuzsa Ludvig has been a favorite since Folkology opened its doors 15 years ago. Unfortunately a few years ago the manufacturer of this great deck went out of business and therefore I am no longer able to source these decks. We are now down to the last two decks in stock, when these are gone, we will have to remove this product from our store. So grab them while they are available!
