The Enchanted Lenormand Oracle is a very attractive book-and-deck set. The allure is not limited to the charming artwork of Virginia Lee, but the material provided by Caitlín Matthews in her invaluable accompanying book.

I'll deal with the cards first. There are the 36 illustrated playing cards that make a petit-Lenormand deck, along with three additional cards that are regretfully advertised as being "part of the deck" i.e. 39 as above. They're not per se.

True to the traditional workings of the method we call Lenormand, these cards feature the traditional, with some very minor variances, symbols. Virginia Lee has worked these in an aesthetically pleasing manner, placing them in a sphere, without detracting from the instant recognisability of ciphers. Laid out in a tableau, one can easily see what is far, near and so on.

There is a soft but not overtly feminine quality, similar to pastel work of the late XVIII and early XIX centuries. They're printed standard issue cardstock, as such they'll soon scuff and warp - I cannot hold that against them, as it's the same with all fortune-telling cards now that aren't released as "premier" edition. Plus cards are meant to be used, not revered as icons.

For me the book is the wonderful resource to recommend. I've been reading these cards for twenty-years, and it's frustrating not to be able to recommend an English resource of true "traditional" methodology. What does this mean? As Caitlín shows it's not the cards' pictures, or even meanings, but how we read.

The first book in English was Erna Droesbeke von Enge's "The Oracle of Mlle Lenormand", which sadly went out of print. Caitlín Matthews' scholarship is encyclopaedic, more complete than Ms.

I added these to my considerable collection a few weeks ago and they are now my favourite and most used pack. The beautiful, clear artwork has enhanced my reading - they certainly have a feeling of depth. Enchanted and enchanting they are! The smaller cards are also easy to handle and (importantly), they feel very good too. I also found the book easy to follow and useful - although I am not by any means a beginner, the guidance and spreads shown can only help to expand my skill. Really pleased I bought these, have used them often and will continue to do so I feel.

I have had my set for days now and love it more each time I use it. The information and guidance in the book is great and so beautifully written, it feels like Caitlin is sitting next to you guiding your learning. Virginia's art is truly enchanting and the cards feel easy and shuffle well. My card stock is faultless and I would hate anyone to miss out on this gorgeous and exciting product due to a fear of any manufacturing issue, which is easily sorted (especially given how affordable it is). This is a deck I know I will carry on me always. Thank you Caitlin and Virginia. Love, love, love it!

Today I was given the opportunity to work with the Enchanted Lenormand deck, with the inspiring guidance of Caitlin Matthews herself. This Enchanted Lenormand deck is a must-have, a great treasure for everyone who loves to work with fortune telling cards and oracles. The cards appear to be a phase in divination between the ancient shamanistic bones and shells oracles, of the divination systems deriving directly from nature, and the later more elaborated systems like the tarot cards. Although I have been working with Tarot cards for more than 40 years, working with these cards gave me a lot of extra insight into the direct experience of oracular systems deriving from western spiritual systems of the past. Thank you Caitlin, for making those more accessible to us! Ina Cüsters-van Bergen, (author of The Temple of High Magic), www.templeofstarlight.eu.

I received this set a few days ago and it is a wonderful little kit; the book - which I read in a couple of days but which I will return to again and again to study - tells you everything you need to know in order to dive into the Lenormand universe. The tone and organisation of the book is very reader-friendly and if you know very little about this fascinating deck of cards, it will give you much to absorb long-term for proficient use of the oracle; and if you are already familiar with it, there'll still be much to stimulate new ways of thinking. I had always found the whole "Houses" way of reading a bit of a blur but this book elucidates it well. Plus of course the Grand Tableau, which isn't nearly as scarey as new readers might think. And the set comes with a delightful little deck of Lenormand cards designed by Virginia Lee. They are exquisite little things - the historic Lenormand images depicted in tiny crystal balls with gnarled branches and leaves clustered around them. So striking when laid out together, like a string of magic baubles.

There has been talk above about the quality of the cardstock. I honestly don't get this. The cards are fine; I don't know what readers are doing but there are no signs of fraying from where I'm divining. The cardstock is stiff and glossy, but they don't seem cardboardy or flimsy or fraying or anything. I shuffle normally and they really are fine...
