What can I say about this deck but "wow"! This has to be one of my favourite decks of all time, and since purchasing it I've been seeing the card images in my mind a lot! I've done some readings with it and they are direct, speaking straight to my intuition, seeming to really bring forward my abilities. I think I'll use these cards a lot! I imagine this will be a deck some will fall head over heels with, others will loathe it (as can be seen from the different reviews here!) I love animals, art and mysticism, so they kind of speak to me on all of those levels at once! The only tiny criticism I have is the keywords - I tend to dislike decks with keywords, since there's usually quite a few which don't match my own meanings for the cards. In Crow's Magick Tarot I found that, whilst I agreed with the vast majority of them, one or two were just nowhere near my own associations for those particular cards, and so I decided to blot all of them out neatly with black permanent marker (I used one with a fine nib!), which was pretty easy given the black background on each card. This has produced an even better deck in my opinion, and one can hardly notice where I've blotted them out. For some the keywords may be a blessing though, since if you're not used to Tarot or you haven't developed your own keyword system yet, these ones may work just as well for you. I've ordered the book to go with the deck and look forward to reading what artist Londa Marks was trying to convey with the deck and about the deeper meaning of some of her symbolism. I must congratulate her particularly on having created what I think is the best Judgement card I've ever seen in any deck - it is absolutely stunning, compelling and completely captures the meaning of this card for me! I can see me enjoying this deck well into the future!
