From the box....

"The enchanting cards of the Forest Folklore Tarot are inspired by a unique area of the United Kingdom called the New Forest. These historical woodlands - lush with wildlife and legends - provide the landscape for imps, fairies, nymphs dwarves, and other creatures that call this area their home. Based on the traditional Tarot interpretations, the deck was rendered using watercolour combined with photography."

The borders are a gorgeous deep dark green, the art is slightly quirky but oh so wonderful, magical and endearing. The combined photography and drawing are probably what gives this deck a quirky but magical feel. The figures, animals and magical creatures are so kindly and gentle looking but serious enough get their meaning across. Based on the Rider-Waite this deck offers some nice difference without straying far from the traditional meanings with a fun, little red devil-like sprite appearing in some cards to accentuate its meaning! There are a few more cards than usual displaying full womanly nakedness but in a natural way.

It's a gorgeous, gentle deck that really does encapture the magic and lushness of the New Forest and has me totally hooked! I see this becoming one of my favourite decks. Suitable for the beginner and serious reader alike.

This is a lovely deck with wonderful paintings in subtle colours. The card stock is nice and sturdy, and i particularly liked the little touch of the Gar Rune from the Anglo-saxon Futhorc on the reverse of each, making this very much an English deck! Another nice touch was the suit of coins/pentacles becoming rings, which fits with the whole ambience very well! I have yet to sit and truly get to grips with the deck readings-wise but my intial impression is that whilst some cards may have imagery with slightly shifted meanings from the norm they should "read" fine and maybe even add their own special something to the whole affair. This deck is defintitely a "keeper" anyway (ie i won't be selling them on!) and i suspect i'll use them quite a bit!

The synopsis of the Forest Folklore Tarot Deck had me really looking forward to seeing a myriad of fairies, elves, nymphs and gnomes and was the main reason why I bought it. It is an attractive deck, but my naive enthusiasm was rewarded with a feeling of "Oh, is that it then?". However, after my initial disappointment, I was able to look at it with a more objective eye and I'm glad I bought it, as it is rather delightful. I like the idea of it being set in the New Forest, a place of ' the Faerie Realm'. Look carefully and you will see all the sprites who didn't make it into the deck!

Forest Folklore Tarot Deck 25 Aug 2005
By Philip G. Hayward - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Misc. Supplies
Just received my tarot cards (Forest Folklore Tarot Deck by Kessia Beverley-Smith). Very pleased with them. Very English, well executed, very sensitively done, they work so well as a set. I even like the backs, Kessia has obviously spent time making them work as well - so often the backs let the actual cards down, not in this case. Overall I can't actually think of any cards that I've seen or used that are better, they are going to be a pleasure to use.

A Real English Feel 27 Aug 2005
By N. Burlton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Misc. Supplies
I have a few sets in my collection and this is up amongst the best of them in my opinion.

This set draws from many areas of English Folklore and the scenes are obviously situated within the landscape of The New Forest and the surrounding area of what was 'old' Wessex.

There are far too many other tarot packs that are just filled with generic New Age imagery. It's nice that this one has a theme, is linked to a specific area and is unmistakably English.

Fun Deck, Delightful Images...But Misses For Me. 31 Jan 2006
By Kathy Dannel Vitcak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Misc. Supplies Verified Purchase
As most of us that adore the tarot can attest to, there is nothing more fun than getting a new deck of cards. We rip open the package, tear into the box and then stare at each card...hoping that this deck is THE ONE!!! I had high hopes that this would be the backbone for my readings with faery energies. I admit it is a fun deck, with some delightful images, but others just did not do it for me.

I feel that one woud need to be a more advanced Tarot reader to be able to use this deck as a traditional reading deck. I know there are others this deck will sing for, but for me it was just flat. It will stay in my collection for the images that DO speak to me, the Wands overall were charming. But I am not sure why there is a little devil on each of the Swords?

If you LOVE working with Faery energies, try this deck, maybe it will sing for you! But to me, the Fey tarot hit much closer to the mark...

The Forest Folklore Deck allows for positive and intuitive insights 18 Jun 2008
By Michaele Powell - Published on Amazon.com

Forest Folklore Tarot Deck
The Forest Folklore Tarot deck (and I have over a dozen different tarot decks)has allowed me the ability to offer my clients as well as myself some of the most positive intuitive and accurate insights that I've ever given. Not only are the cards beautiful, filled with fun and playful images, but they are so much fun to use! My clients love the images as well as the messages that they bring. They are easy to use, whether you have been doing spreads for years or just a beginner you will definitely enjoy this deck.

Nice deck for anyone 16 Jan 2006
By G. J. Dennis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Misc. Supplies
The pictures are nice without being fluffy or cutsey. I love how all the Aces are animals, a kingfisher, a horse, a stag, etc. This really is a deck for anyone, but I think those with a love of Fairies and nature would really enjoy it, or children. No scary images!

Yet this is not a light deck, I have done some serious readings with mine and got in depth answers. I feel it would be excellent to use to read for children, or pets. My pet readings were very clear and accurate.
