5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best decks I've used 12 April 1997
By A Customer
I have been reading Tarot for two years now, beginning with the standard Rider-Waite deck...over the years I have collected many tarot decks in a search to find the deck I worked best with...Legend is it.

The artwork is exquisite, beautifully detailed watercolors that immediately capture the attention of the viewer.

To help the inexperienced reader, the book "Keeper of Words" is included in the deck, a well written, thoroughly researched guide to reading Legend. In addition to black and white reproductions of each card accompanying a explanation of its meaning, there is also a short history of each character depicted on the cards.

I liked the way each card was dedicated to a different and fitting character in the Legend of King Arthur. I found the deck easy to work with and pleasant to look at. I even like just taking out the guide and reading it. The book explains everything so well and it's also very informative as to Arthurian History. I gave the deck a 10.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Very Best 28 May 1999
By A Customer
This was my very first deck, and I am now totally spoild for any other! Though I now have used more tradition decks like the Ryder-Waite, etc, none come close to the pure joy I get from seeing the tales of Kind Arthur come to life before me. The other nice thing about the deck, is it isn't so focused on Christian symbolism, like "The Devil" Or the traditional "Justice" card.

The other nice thing about the deck is the Arthurian symbolism does give you a more in depth reading beyond the traditional. I've found at times that the legend of a card may have more to do with the situation I may be in, than the traditional interpritation.

A wonderful, well done set. Beautiful to look at, a pure joy to use. The Book & Deck really are a must.

4.0 out of 5 stars a legend indeed 9 April 2014
By Ana
This is an amazing set.
I received it years ago as a gift. The artwork is well done, very well executed with extensive care in detail painting.
The cards have a lilac border and a purple back with a golden labyrinth in the middle and white stars.
The paintings are exquisite and you can see that the artist took pains to make them not only beautiful but reflective of the mood of the card. She researched arthurian legends and celtic myths extensibly and that is reflected in her work. She was very thorough.
Although, i love this deck i cannot read with it.
The imagery is too detailed, to structured to let the intuition guide one to the meaning of the card. This probably could have been solved with bigger sized cards (as always llewellyn does not care about it). They are 11,7 cm high and 7 cm wide. They shuffle well and for one the publisher wasn't stingy in the thickness, which is average. Still, i think they should be just a little thicker. Each one has it's name (like ten of spears) on top and on the bottom there is the name of the scene depicted (the green knight).
However, some cards have scenes that do not seem to be connected with the meaning of the card. I found myself looking puzzled about half a dozen cards and had to use the book.
The book is very well written, in a good clean style, accessible to all. There is lots of information, which includes a description of the card, why it was chosen and it's meaning. It is one of the best companion books published out there.
This is the best deck within the arthurian theme.
I'm considering giving it to a friend, because i'm not interested in collecting decks and if i don't use it, i don't need it. Still, this deck is so beautiful, that i'm having difficulty parting with it.
