I've taken much good advice from this Tarot Nova deck(my first Tarot deck) and Palm Reading guide. Not to mention how impressed my friends are with the beautiful deck. The set comes wonderfully displayed and it has been well worth my money.

Fortune-Telling: Reveal Inner Truths With the Tarot Nova and 10 Dec. 1999
By E. Ruthstrom - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This was a disappointing kit. You should know that you get a copy of Palm Reading : A Little Guide to Life's Secrets (Miniature Edition), which can be bought separately a couple of dead presidents. The description of the kit does not explain that you only get the miniature book on palms and the tarot deck and a pamphlet to describe the cards. The palm book is very basic and very limited in its graphics, which you need to explain palms. The deck is cute but very basic in its illustrations. This could be of interest to someone who knows nothing about either palm reading or tarot but don't bother if you want something with meat to it.

Great little deck! 13 Dec. 2008

Tarot Nova
A Deck Review by Hope Ballard CTC

Tarot Nova by Dennis Fairchild, Illustrated by Julie Paschkis is a 78 card miniature tarot deck published by Running Press Book Publishers.

This little Rider-Waite-Smith based deck is charming and I give it a hearty thumb up, as a matter of fact I can go so far as to say that I just love it. I have always had a fondness for miniature sized decks as I have small hands and they are easy for me to handle. The cards in this deck measure 3.1 x 2.9 x 1.9 inches; are printed on a heavy card stock and have a very glossy laminate coating.

The card backs are lush with green vines, a centered sun, two crescent moons, and two small people juggling. The art work is clever and done in a way that makes them fully reversible.

The cards are unusual in that they are black with colorfully illustrated majors, pips, and courts. The majors are numbered 0-21 with 0 being the Fool, 8 for Justice, and 11 for Strength. The Court cards consist of Pages, Knights, Queens and Kings.

The writing on the cards is English and the numbers are written with roman numerals; all of which is in white which is easily legible even for my on the verge of bifocal eyesight! The only borders on the cards are the tips which denote the suits; yellow tips for swords, green tips for pentacles, blue tips for cups, red tips for wands, and purple tips for the majors.

This darling deck is suitable for all ages and I would recommend this deck for children who wish to read the tarot. Sneaky mice, greedy pigs, people, and lush plant life are all depicted in these cards. Cards that could be disturbing in other decks do not seem frightening in this one. For instance the gentleman in the 10 of Swords card looks rather like a porcupine and has a perplexed expression on his face as he looks around at the 10 swords sticking out of his back. The 5 of swords shows a mouse chasing another well dressed mouse and although he has managed to pierce the mouse with on of his swords the chase continues! The death card shows a winged skull on top of an hourglass with three butterflies circling the card. Our naked lovers in the lovers card are discreetly covered Adam and Eve style with a green flowering vine, and although the woman in the strength card is fully naked, the picture is drawn in a childlike manner so her nudity is a non issue to me.
The next great thing about this deck is the English only companion book. Yes, a little 88 page bound book the size of the cards with a hard cardboard cover. This tiny book has a short introduction of tarot, an explanation of the major arcana, and the suits of the minor arcana. It is illustrated with black and white pictures of each of the cards and provides both upright and reversed interpretations that for the most part make sense with the correlating picture. A paper mat is provided with spread information, mine quickly got lost.
When I need a deck to throw in my purse, I grab this one! When I want a direct too the point answer to my question, I choose this deck. When my eyes are tired of the busy, cluttered images in my other decks, I choose this deck for respite! This great little deck continues to be one of my all time favorites.

This miniature deck can be purchased alone or in a kit with the addition of Palm Reading information.

cards 14 and 16 printed wrong in miniature set 3 Oct. 2004
By autumn - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Hello, I bought the 1999 copyright of the miniature cards about 2 years ago, my first set seen and bought out of curiosity. Just last week I laid out all the cards, Major and Minor, in numerical order and found the TEMPERANCE and TOWER cards sharing the same number: XVI, TEMPERANCE should be XIV. An obvious printing error, I have not personally brought this to the attention of the authors but am hoping others like myself realize its numerical misprint. All The Best.......

Worth the Money 27 May 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I got this set for 15 bucks at a local store cause I wanted to start fortune telling. It was worth the money, it comes with a little palm reading book that tells you the basics, a full set of tarot cards and a booklet that tells you what they mean and a very nice, durable (and pretty) cardbord box with little indents to store it all in. I got the set for lack of anything better around I thought "hey a tarot cards a tarot card," later I learned I was wrong, you're suposed to pick a set that calls to you. After seeing a few sets of cards, I like this one the best, it's not the most detailed (The backgrounds are black) but the colors are bright and vivid, really lively and the art style is very fun. It suits me well, however if you want to get really good at reading I sugest you buy another book, "The Illustrated Guide to the Tarot" by Naomi Ozaniec is helping me out a lot (though I haven't finished it yet)...
