These cards are beautiful and different in interpretation. They do no suit a beginner, however I do tend to disagree with the tarot collector negative review. Tarot is about change and differences and as much as recognize this is not a beginners pack, if you let tarot imagery get to you then I am very confused as there are hundreds if not more decks out there.
All in all a reliable tarot deck beautifully drawn.

I always hesitate to write a review because I know that everyone enjoys different things. But, for my own personal taste, I was disappointed in these cards. When I first saw them, I could hardly wait to order. I love working with Fairy tarots, but I have always dreamed of someone doing a tarot based only on the Elves.

I had tried to order the complete kit for this tarot which is supposed to include a book that will 'explain' the stories behind the meanings of these cards. After waiting nearly a month, and then being told it would be at least another month before the entire kit was available, I canceled the first order and simply got the cards. Would I have been happier waiting for the kit? I'm not sure.

I am not an advanced tarot reader, but I have made several sets of tarot cards of my own. When I read through the meanings assigned to the Tarot of the Elves, I was confused. The card meanings are based on stories that I don't know. I quickly realized that, without the story behind the pictures, I was lost.

Also, the pictures were a bit disconcerting to me. There is a lot of blood and death shown in the pictures. Sometimes, as in the suit of Cups, I have a difficult time telling whether the elves on the cards are male or female. Facial expressions on many of the cards seemed frightening or 'creepy'. There were several times when a chill ran up my back while examining the pictures for the first time. All in all, this was not what I had expected to see in an Elven land and I have to admit that it made me sad.

I did try to work with the cards. At first I tried simply drawing one card every morning and using the meaning to help guide my day, but the cards had such depressing meanings that I was uncomfortable doing that. Next I thought I might use the cards from this tarot and simply substitute the meanings that I was more familiar with when reading tarot. But the pictures were so foreign to what I was used to believing about tarot cards that I quickly stopped trying to do that, too!

I think for now I'll put these cards away. They don't 'feel' right to me, but others may really enjoy them. Maybe I'm just not as 'Elvish' as I thought. Maybe that is my problem. I guess I wanted an 'Elven Tarot', not a 'Tarot for Elves'. After having seen these cards, I would not buy them for myself again.

For this still-learning-the-art-of-divination-itself tarot user, a very insightful and useful deck. 8 Oct. 2014
By K.O. - Published on
Format: Cards
In my search of what Tarot is all about and how best to use it in and for my own life, I've come across many different interpretations, philosophies, styles and techniques. I've tried various approaches, with hit and miss success--meaning that I had yet to find the right combination that would allow a reading to 'flow'. Where intellectual understanding and my own intuition-'drawing from the cards'-meld together into a true reading.
It all came together with this deck. The card images themselves were immediately evocative for me. My first reading with these cards was a breeze, and amazing, complete with clarity, insight, eventual understanding of a current circumstance...And now I can't keep my hands off them! I just love their energy. I'm completely delighted by the otherworldly, fantasy approach (FUN!), while at the same time easily absorbed into the underlying (archetypal) stories themselves. Being able to experience through Tarot the process of submerging into a more mystical, 'right-brain' world, absorb the wisdom to be found there, and then reemerge with a new, better-informed outlook is what I've been looking for. I've found a measure of (sort of) these elements in other decks, with some work, but not all of them in one! And so quickly! This deck is the very first time I was able to have a thorough, deep, and completely satisfying Tarot self-reading. I am very, VERY happy with this deck. I've found the one that works for me. And I'm still a beginner!
I also think the creator of this deck did a good job in the 'little white book' that came with the deck itself. Among other things, he explains concisely how this deck came to be, and what he wanted it to be. I find his created world of the elves to be intriguing, and am looking forward to getting the more expansive book at a later date. Most importantly, I think he expresses very well (both in the cards themselves and the little booklet that came with the deck) a wisdom of the Tarot--The Hero's Journey, the journey of the fool...what we all have to go through, in potentially countless ways and forms, sometimes not so pleasant. This deck reflects this beautifully. There's tragedy, treachery, avoidance in seeing/acknowledging these difficult things, and there's redemption. There's rejection, isolation, and there's acceptance. For all of us. Such an inspired deck and I love it!

Very beautifull art work 23 Dec. 2007

I like to purchase tarot decks more because I see them as art than because I work with them in divination. I purchased this one as a gift for a friend and I am very satisfied my purchase. I don't know how it will work as a divination tool but I am sure that my friend will be very satisfied from the beautiful imagery and the strong energy this deck radiates when touched.
Love the artwork! 25 May 2011

Very nice deck but not your traditional tarot deck. Love the artwork but I have not used them too much yet. Vendor was wonderful and the product arrived in excellent condition.
