5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifull deck!
The colours used in this deck are beautifull. Although one reviewer had negative feelings about the sky being colours other than blue (?) I think it adds to the ethrealness that the tarot should have. After all, that is what it represents, correct? Being an artist myself, I loved the bold lines and tertiary colours used. Other types of tarot may come and go, but I...

2.0 out of 5 stars There's such a thing as too much color
Although most people would agree that the original Rider-Waite colors are a bit bland, the Albano-Waite solution is actually worse: the colors are bright but often absurd and weird, making the cards clownish, garish and distracting (imagine pea green skies and a completely red Knight of Pentacles). As this is a facsimile, the colors bleed and often obliterate some of...

5.0 out of 5 stars The IMPROVED Waite Deck!!!, 3 Oct 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: Albano-Waite Tarot Deck (Cards)
Most of us learn Tarot reading and symbolism from the classic Rider-Waite deck. At the same time, however, some find the traditional Waite Deck's colors somewhat drab and wanting. Well this deck is the answer to that problem. The colors on the Albano Waite deck are stunning. At the same time it uses what seems to be exactly the same artwork on the traditional Rider-Waite. All the symbols are there and all the details. But the colors are much more intense. If you like Waite symbolism but want better colors this is probably the deck for you. If you could never get into Waite decks because their "bland images" never spoke to you, you must look at this deck! If you are just learning Tarot from books and materials that refer to the Waite deck, this is an ideal version of the deck to start with. ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!

2.0 out of 5 stars There's such a thing as too much color, 28 Oct 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Albano-Waite Tarot Deck (Cards)
Although most people would agree that the original Rider-Waite colors are a bit bland, the Albano-Waite solution is actually worse: the colors are bright but often absurd and weird, making the cards clownish, garish and distracting (imagine pea green skies and a completely red Knight of Pentacles). As this is a facsimile, the colors bleed and often obliterate some of Pamela Colman Smith's details. The dark colors are especially brackish and cheap looking. A few cards have some colorful force to them (The High Priestess is quite striking) but if you're looking for a better version of the Waite-Smith cards, get the beauitful and finely detailed "Universal Waite" deck, with its attractive shades and depths.
