I only recently received my copy of this deck, so please don't consider this a definitive review. The package is in Llewellyn's current style: large box containing an (fake? - it feels too scratchy to be real organza) organza bag, cardboard inserts to mask some empty space and a substantial paperback book.

The card are printed on reasonably robust cardstock and, rare amongst Tarots, have no borders. You can check this by looking at the pack edge on: the pictures really do go up to the edge as you can tell by the kaleidoscope of colours around the edges. While I find Lisa Hunt's artwork to be a little on the twee, sentimental side, I must admit to owning a number of her decks, so she's obviously doing something right.

I have two bugbears with new decks: the first is that the reverse of the card should indicate easily whether reversals are intended to be used (the test is to take two cards place them face down while rotating one of them through 180 degrees, and then play spot the difference!). This deck supports reversals. If you're dealing cards I don't think that either reader or querent should know that some cards are reversed until they're turned over.

My second bugbear is that the minor arcana should show the appropriate number of coins, cups, swords, or wands (or whatever names have been used instead of the traditional) on the card itself, rather than us having to take the artist's word that a single stone actually represents the five of stones. The symbols can be somewhat hard to find in the deck but they are there.

Have you ever heard about reading symbols the coffee leaves in an already drunk cup? Those images like birds, numbers, dragons, horses and so on lie on there. Well, you will find exactly these with the Fairy Tale Tarot by Lisa Hunt. I had the pleasure to thank her with a photo of her deck in facebook and i also had the luck to be thanked by her. The fairy Tale Tarot is a world of fantasy, fairy tales, composed of parts adapted to each card's general meaning. The box contained the deck which is composed of 78 borderless cards with an amazing ideal (i would say ideal) reversible back; a 300-page book companion of very nice paper and a black organdi tarot bag.
as you will find there are some interesting changes in the name of the cards like for example The wise old man for the Emperor, Hapily ever after for the World card and so many more. The images itself are quite different. You will find Whitesnow history in the six of swords, or Bambi in the two of cups...
The book contains a brief introduction than it goes to the Major Arcana, followed by the suit of Cups/Swords/Pentacles and then wands, first interpreting court cards than pip ones. For each card you will find the fairy tale where it's image was taken from, then the symbols and their meanings in a reading. You will get enchanted by the world of dragons, birds, boxes, forests, ghosts Lisa had depicted in there.
Don't Forget to buy this one. It's pretty worth having this different one Tarot deck in your collection.

This is a lovely box set of Tarot Cards based on fairytales. The Set includes Cards, a nice Tarot Bag and also a BEAUTIFUL and very high quality book of fairytales with card meanings.

However; I would find it hard to believe that many people would be able to read these cards very accurately, and that as beautiful as they are, the stories featured on the cards are simply too colourful and distracting for their own good...

I thoroughly enjoyed the book and shared the author's enthusiasm and sentiment for such tales, The book features loads of delightful fairytales (including some lesser known ones - which is interesting) and although I do love the quality and style of the Cards, felt they wouldn't be much use to me for any serious Tarot Reading.... Personally, I keep them as part of a small collection of Tarot Sets that I have.

I knock just one star off for the fact they probably are not too suitable for the purpose in which they are intended - but gorgeous all the same! : - )

This pack has beautiful illustrations, which makes it a good contemplative or meditative pack. The fairy tales in the accompanying book are very abridged, but are worth reading if you are interested. I think some of the choices are strange. For example why Red Riding Hood for the fool? I would have thought that Goldilocks was better. The court cards differ from the traditional Rider Waite as do some of the major arcana. I would say that this pack would be confusing with conflicting meanings for those that are new to tarot. I think the packaging is excessive and the book is unnecessary.
Great illustrations which, when offered a choice of packs, some querrants are immediately drawn to as they are familiar. I love the illustrations, but the rest is unnessary. A pack for those with some understanding already of card meanings.
