Rarely do you find something so special- "genuine and good". I just bought 5 more sets to have on hand for gift-giving...it's THE PERFECT gift, truly. It's a beautiful package, a gorgeous/quality "jewel box" of a case...for an incredible deck of cards. I am new to tarot- and I'm just getting into it- but I've spent a lot of time in Barnes and Noble and places looking for a deck to jump out and say, (as my Dad would always say), "Buy Me, Buy Me!". Art of Life did just that...it drew me in by the picture alone- and then after reading what the experts had to say, I had to have it.
Even an amateur of Tarot, like myself, can tell right away that this deck is the real deal.
It is in itself a "Masterpiece", of masterpieces!
Don't hesitate- get it. You won't be disappointed. I've been using it for the past month- each morning I shuffle the deck and pick a card...and it somehow makes the day brighter- no matter what's happening in my life. It allows me to approach the day with a more meaningful and positive outlook, which hey, for $20 dollars- I'd say it's one of the best returns on any investment I've ever made. On weekends, or when I have more time I look at the booklet that the author wrote and I use some of her suggestions as far as lay out...she has made it so easy and approachable! It's just a great way to spend a few minutes with myself- over a leisurely Saturday or Sunday morning coffee. True meaning and wisdom can be hard to find with all of the craziness today- and with the pace of life.
Charlene Livingstone offers some wisdom and happiness to all of us with this deck...it's a treasure and I feel lucky to have discovered it. I never write reviews- but I had to for this deck- I wish the author and publisher great success and will look out for more of the same in the future! :)
