I do not even use tarot cards, but the book that comes with this beautiful card deck has become one of my most important reference books on Voodoo and related religions (santeria, etc.). I have referred to it over and over again through the years. It is an amazing work of scholarship and for me, the gorgeous artwork is just a bonus.

I absolutely love this deck and book. It is not a conventional tarot and personally i do not use it as such, but that is my own personal limitation, there is no reason not to use it for normal readings.
I am not ready to share this deck yet and prefer to use it as a learning tool. It is wonderful in this role as there is no need to plan learning. The use of the cards allows you to be guided in learning and the book opens up the understanding of the cards. Excellent starter for the student of Voodoo or Santeria. But if used as a regular tarot I would not recommend it for a beginner unless already familiar with the subject.

The deck is absolutely beautiful, and the book is filled with useful information. Even someone who has studied New Orleans Voodoo will learn something from it. I have used the cards to entertain friends, and used a small portion of the book to write an anthropology paper. Highly recommended.

A spectacular achievement from which eminates the truth, beauty, love, peace, respect and power of the loa from its cards and its pages. An invaluable tool for both the novice and the adept alike.
