3.0 out of 5 stars OTT but a classic, 16 April 2013
I bought this deck because it is a classic. I was pleased that the cards are the same size and thickness of the original rider waite deck.

I personally think they went a bit over the top with all the symbols and you can say the same with less. I think a bit more attention to artistic beauty could have been paid too, I don't get a lot from the major arcana but an really enjoying looking at and finding joy in the imaging in the lesser arcana.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cool book!, 16 April 2013
I ummmed and arrrrrred about buying this for a while and am very pleased that I did, it's great recommend it totally. Just a shame to support tax dodging Amazon really, but you have to admit they do get the job done.

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit of a let down, 16 April 2013
In my opinion this is a poor reproduction of the original, the characters seem to me not to have the energy and vitality despite the bright colours, the card feels flimsy too.

I will use this deck if I feel I need to see a specific detail that is lost in the original - i.e. it was seeing the snake around the magicians belt which was the real selling point for me, but I can't really see myself using it for readings and would not buy it again.
