As soon as I touched the box after opening the outer Amazon packing I felt the cards talking to me, I picked them up and now I can't put them down, I have many decks and this is one of my favourites, the cards are beautifully done, the images easy to understand and the link to the Tarot from the Celtic tarot is also easy to understand, as for the book that is brilliantly done, with the Fool's journey being described at the end of each card, what he has learned etc. A must have deck for anyone, I showed this deck to a friend of mine who does professional tarot readings and she was over the moon with it, in fact she was so over the moon her sister asked me to order one for her for her birthday, the cards are powerful and I am looking forward to doing readings with them. What you say? You have done no readings with them? At this moment in time I am reading through the book to line my thoughts up with the Celtic and Tarot meanings as some of the cards are slightly different, but still a beautiful and powerful deck to have and own.
