5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, Distinctive and Inspiring, 4 Oct. 2012
This colourful, modern twist on the traditional French Lenormand oracle is a breath of fresh air. Suitable for beginners, it also offers enough depth and substance to satisfy the more experienced reader. The stylish artwork by Bev Speight eschews all the usual woo-woo cliches of oracle and tarot decks, and manages to combine the traditional look of a woodcut with a contemporary (sometimes slightly 60s retro) feel. The book by Liz Dean packs an awful lot into its 64 pages. In full colour and beautifully produced, it gives the basic meaning for each card, plus some interpretations for card combinations (particularly useful for Lenormand virgins like me!)and, best of all, a short fairy tale. The fairy tales are a real bonus and offer a way to work with the cards more deeply; a treasure to help the seasoned reader stretch their interpretive muscles. The Fairy Fortune Cards elegantly square the circle of visual simplicity and symbolic depth.

5.0 out of 5 stars A unique and special deck, 7 Jan. 2009
The Transparent is literally a new perspective on the tarot, taking it into three dimensions and adding a whole new world of possibilities for interpretation. Well done Emily, first for thinking up such an amazing concept, and then executing it so beautifully.

The deck is simply but elegantly packaged with a plain white cloth and the book is well written and well produced. The deck itself is pretty much regular size for tarot cards, but probably requires slightly more careful handling to preserve the finish. The artwork is simple and pared down - it's only when you see the cards in combination that the startling potential of this deck begins to reveal itself.

This is a new frontier for the tarot. I was lucky enough to witness the Transparent Tarot taking shape online at Aeclectic Tarot Forum and it's wonderful to see such an innovative idea finding its way into the marketplace. With so many tarot publishers retreading old ideas or playing it safe, I'm glad that Schiffer have taken a chance on the TT.
