5.0 out of 5 stars Living in a Mystereum world... 3 Oct 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Since purchasing this strange and oddly enchanting deck, that comes in a box with a satisfying magnetic click... That gives me 6 of Cups nostalgia to days when I stored my treasures of pebbles and old coins and autumn gathered conkers in a manly scented old King Edward's cigar box... Well I have to admit that I have become most proficient at handling the hassles that life throws at you every so often... Not only more speedily are they dealt with but also in wildly humorous ways and with effortlessly classy panache ... So don't ask yourself how much does this deck cost? Ask yourself how much will this save me... All those hours soon add up ...And to free those up quickly and stylishly...to open up room in your life for what you do want...Priceless ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Visionary Tarot Proposal, Unique! 28 Jan 2011
By Aurora Diaz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Already own one, got it yesterday. So this is first impression from a latina tarot reader and lover. The cards are a little bigger than usual. They feel good in the hands.

The art is superb, visionary. Surreal in a modern way, one of a kind. Something that called my attention since the moment the cards where in my hands are the composition of the cards. The organization of elements in many cards are there so the reader can behold the image and organize them in a personal, meaningful order, and this is unique of this deck, I had never seen this before. If you are a creative individual, this deck is for you. You can find images of cards into other cards, Like the fool destroying The Tower: provocative! Still I had not use it for reading, I think I can make up a reading with just one card.

If you are an experienced reader you will find a lot of food for reflection, imagination and creation. And if you are a newbie, the author gaves an extensive presentation of each card, even he talks about the relationship among the cards. A fresh style, the cards talk to you and the author gives tools for imagination for every card in the deck. Go and get yours!

I want to say the use of color is stunning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grow Your Imagination 23 Jan 2011
By Bonnie Cehovet - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
"Tarot in the Land of Mystereum" is based on Jordan Hoggard's independently published "Mystereum Tarot". I love the color and movement in that deck, which has very much been carried forward into this work. The focus for this deck, and its companion book, lies in the realm of imagination, and the Seeker's ability to access his or her imagination. The key is to establish harmonious relationships between ideas and feelings- both of which can be found in our creative self.

The Seeker, and the Seeker's own intuition, are meant to be the guide through the journey of these cards. The Seeker is asked to view his or her imagination as a bright light, a shining star that will guide them on their journey. In making use of one's imagination, one strengthens all six senses.

This is a traditional 78 card deck, with the card back (a window) acting as a79th card. Each card is seen as holding a place in the Land of Mystereum. The suits are the traditional Wands, Cups, Swords and Pentacles. The Court Cards are Page, Knight, Queen and King. The Major Arcana carry traditional titles.

Varying forms of imagination are presented here: the Major Arcana are associated with Archetypal Imagination, Wands with Energizing Imagination,Cups with Fulfilling Imagination, Swords with Communicative Imagination, and Pentacles with Grounding Imagination.

Each of the cards - the Major Arcana, the Minor Arcana Pips and the Court Cards - are presented with a description of the card's energy, commentary by the card itself (entering the card), and a list of imagination tools. For example, one of the imagination tools for the Chariot is "I give you full-on strong YAH breathing to aspirate your ideas with high performance." There is also a black and white image of the card presented with each card. At the back of the book there is a listing of the cards, along with key concepts.

The back of the cards shows a window,with a vine growing across the top of it, and is reversible. The card faces show a 1/4" white border. At the bottom of the card is a white strip, with the card's identity. For the Major Arcana, it is the card number, in Roman numerals, with the card name on either side in English, French, German and Spanish. For the Pips (numbered cards), it is the card number in Arabic numerals, with the suit name on either side in English, French, German and Spanish. For the Court Cards, the card title is in the middle, with the suit name on either side in English, French,German and Spanish.

The art is intensely colored, and done in a surrealistic fashion. Some of the cards have been redone from the original deck, to remove the nudity and make them acceptable for use with children.

I love the deck, and the book. It is easy to follow, and takes one outside of self-imposed boundaries. It would be a good deck to use with children, or to use to connect with one's own inner child.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and Complex 27 Feb 2011
By *Auntie L* - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really love the architectural frame on these cards. Each one frames a card full of flat, intense images that seem like a cross between the innocent drawings of childhood, tribal art, and computer drawn totems. I am especially impressed with the recurring images -- sometimes the focus of a card, and other times almost a digital phantom.

Well thought out, positive imagery works on many levels.
5.0 out of 5 stars Tarot in the Land of Mystereum - A Review 11 Jan 2014
By Anita R. Perez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Tarot is a Mind Altering Substance.
Yes it is...
Not just because of the lofty concepts, or the changes in consciousness that a reader attains as they fall into "state", but because sometimes the art is created in such a way that it literally changes you as you look at it.
There is some strange equation in putting images together, that make them psychoactive- and according to a person's frequency, they will experience them in different ways.
You remember those optical illusion pictures on the internet- the ones that cause you to see an after-image on a white wall, or on the inside of your eyelids? These cards do that to me.
The color combinations make my eyes go buggy, and seem to flicker and move in the same colors as the phosphenes inside my eyelids.
Because of this, I had a difficult time writing this review, so- please bear with me. I was, as I said, in an altered state.
I should also add here that I am a synesthete, and these really set me off on a loop. They are very noisy....the colors sizzle and shout in powerful voices: piano, trumpet, pipe-organ, percussion- and old-time steam calliope.
The shapes and patterns are rhythmic and full of reprised themes that change key and instrumentation, but never become muddy or indistinct.
As a synesthete, I found myself completely bedazzled- like opening a book and having a brass band suddenly march out of the pages into my living room. I was astonished at first, then amused as if a drum majorette leaned out of a card, popped a cork and poured me a stiff drink.
Kings and Knights shook their hair at me as if they were members of an '80s rock band, and I found myself marching to the bright tones of orange and turquoise right into the Landscape of Mystereum, stepping in time to the Processional March- a shako suddenly towering with plumes on my head, and a kettle drum resounding with every pulse.
I wasn't really sure if I could read clearly with these as of yet, or if I might find myself so carried away by all the brilliant sensory input- colors and shapes so sharp edged I could cut myself on them and never know I bled.
With a certain trepidation I unleashed the riotous characters and landscapes in the deck, and dealt out my first reading.
The potency of the images was penetrating, and produced actual physical sensations. I could hear as well as see the towering chords made by the shapes and colors- and they told me what to say. I could no more miss the point than fall off the earth into the endless sky.
I knocked that reading right out of the ballpark, even though to me it sounded like a commentary on thunder and lightning.
I described tornados and floods and volcanos and hurricanes in a voice clashing with cymbals and tolling with bells.
Fortunately, my client heard a more or less coherent answer to his question, and seemed impressed with the sense of my utterances. I have no idea what I told him, but he went away happy and very impressed. Thank goodness!
If you love strong, vivid contrasts and geometric shapes- with symbols that evoke a world both abstract and surreal, this deck is for you. I think this would appeal to fans of graphic novels, and chess players, to scientists and inventors, to scifi obsessed gamers and futurists.
There are no diaphenous veils or smoky layers of ambiguity here. Shadows announce the absence of light, and light bends around corners to illuminate every nook and cranny.
The mystery of mystereum is not that it keeps things hidden- it's more how it pulls you right in, without hesitation or dissembling. One good long look, and you're sliding into that world at the speed of thought, with answers shouting themselves into your ears, down your throat and out of your mouth.
This is clearly the work of an architect: it's full of tools, landscape elements, arches and clearly defined shapes with hard edges and actinic, saturated hues. Arches hold up the sky and frame the action. Mountains rise out of earth, and sweeps of vivid contrast swirl and capture the reader, until you are drawn irresistibly into the virtual landscapes within.
Whatever delicacy and subtlety of shading is not in the cards is instead present in the soothing back design- a painting that possesses a strangely harmonious combination of linear gradients, and an organic softness of wind and water and dusk-light.

The packaging is very well done, in the classic box style offered by Schiffer- with magnetic closure, satin ribbon, and fitted compartments. There is a well-crafted and comprehensive companion book- also authored by Jordan Hoggard- included in the kit, and the cards are beautifully printed on high quality card stock with a glossy finish.
*I should not here that I did not purchase this deck from Amazon, but received it from the artist for the specific purpose of writing a review.
5.0 out of 5 stars Trippy Tarot Delights 29 Jun 2011
By Nancy Antenucci - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
After receiving my deck and companion book...I would say that Jordan is the beat poet of the tarot tribe. I don't know if the mass will fall under his magical rhythmic prose anymore than contemporary folks did with Jack Kerouac but the impressive thought and originality of this work stands true. The stylistic artwork of the cards are not really my cup of tea but I have found that younger students and clients love love love them. Bravo Jordan!
