Awesome tarot, though standard size doesn't do it justice, 2 Jun 2010
Tarot itself is beyond awesome. I've been keeping an eye out for the artist's work since 2005, not long after she first started on the project. Her artwork is beautiful -- the colour is rich and blend into each other in subtle shades, the lines are flowing and the curves are just stunning.
However, the printing doesn't do it justice -- the standard size cards are a little too small, and details end up getting lost -- you could see the originals on her website, it's much larger, so it would have been nice if the cards are printed say, at twice the standard sizing.
The book is sufficient for someone who's never done a tarot reading before -- but I'm not planning on using these cards for readings; they're just too beautiful for any wear and tear.
Lastly, Amazon ships this in a normal book cardboard sleeve, but the case itself is not fully filled out, so it WILL get at least a creased corner, or in my case, a whole side squashed. I do hope Amazon takes some care in packaging this in the future -- the case itself is quite pretty as well so it's not that pleasant to receive a squashed case.
