Having ordered this deck through another website, I thought I would write a little piece for those looking to purchase this deck. It certainly is conversation provoking! At our tarot group we could spend a good 15/20 mins discussing a partiuclar card. The words "sinister", "wow", "dark", "depressing in a nice way" have been used by other tarot reader friends when looking through this deck. Have had only one really negative comment but that is because the partiuclar person doesn't like human faces on cards! Full of skulls, ghosts, evil looking children, manic looking adults, I think the only card that is "normal" is 3 wands. I already own the Victorian Romantic Tarot by the same authors and was searching the net to see if they did anything else when I came across this one. It is beautifully illustrated, based on Rider-Waite with a little twist, definitely not for beginners, but definitely one for collectors. Do give this deck a look and see.
