Format: Cards
It's a real shame these stunning cards were printed on such shiny cardboard. I absolutely love the designs and the fact they are black and white, but could they not have been less plasticky? It really lets them down...

On the plus side, these are intricately drawn, beautiful, incredibly detailed cards that, as mentioned by another reviewer, will not suit everyone. However, they are an excellent set for anyone with a strong interest in Hermeticism or the Golden Dawn, and much can be learned about the symbolism via the books of Robert Wang - The Qabalistic Tarot comes highly recommended.

I also use them for personal meditation and ritual and divination work, but I would happily use them with a friend if they wished - i just don't know anyone who'd find them appropriate.

Overall, I love them, but I can't get over that disappointment I feel when I see them reflecting the light in a cheap, tacky way, or when I touch them and they feel like they've been put through my laminator.

To the publisher: I would gladly buy another set were they reprinted on a more suitable material!

If you are looking for a deck that will give clear symbolic images, this is it. Beautiful, colorful artwork, it's not. Black ink drawings only which are primarily based on the Thoth deck. Some of the artwork is good, some is awful. It's as if the artist could draw everything but the human form, which he renders in a flat style or overworked to show dimension. The titles are very informative because they state the Lord, Spirit, Children or Daughter designations associated with esoteric teachings, so once again, very good for study work. I would not use this deck to do a reading with for anyone else.

this deck is certainly not for everyone, it's very detailed and has a lot alchemical/astrological symbols in it. i find this deck in black/white to be a true gem, but i know a lot of people would be put off by the imagery and the many details in the cards. i give this a 5 star cause this deck is a truly unique gem in my eyes, i love the b/w design and the quite dark imagery itself in the cards, and super fast shipping from amazon! i definitely reccomend this deck to anybody into studying the hermetics or that's into more unique and darker tarot decks.

I have to say that I'm really impressed with this deck. Even it's printed in black&white but the work is so delicate both printing and die-cut unlike many other decks I've ever seen. I love it ^v^

This deck reminds me of Crowley's. Its black and white drawings are crammed with so much symbolism, it can be overwealming at first. But it all becomes very clear with experience. I use this deck for meditative purposes. The little booklet is a bit sparse on interpretive meanings, check out Wang's book on the Golden Dawn deck.

A beautiful, intricately designed deck of cards. More complicated to read than the Hanson-Roberts deck (which I would suggest for beginners as I started with). This set of cards has a depth that I'm sure with continual use will become more apparent.
