The New Palladini deck was recommended to me by a fellow working at our local new age store--he said it was their hottest seller and his personal favorite. While my personal favorites remain the Cosmic Tribe and Thoth decks, I still have to say that the Palladini deck is in a class of its own. I don't believe I've ever seen richer, deeper colors in any deck. So many decks, like the Rider-Waite, have very washed out pale colors in comparison. Additionally, there is a great uniformity and cohesion in these cards which makes them work well together in creating a holistic, alternate world. Despite the artistic uniformity of the deck, there is no sense of repetition or redundancy.
The symbolism is traditional yet fresh, very intuitive and easy to grasp. This is truly THE ideal deck for beginners--I really wish it had been my first deck. It has such a positive energy, and a simplicity that doesn't seem simple. My two favorite decks above, I've noticed, are intimidating to some people. The New Palladini deck seems to have much wider appeal. If you love Tarot decks, there is little chance this deck will disappoint you.
