5.0 out of 5 stars Mass Market edition of a lovely deck, 14 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Under the Roses Lenormand (Hardcover)
This is a lovely deck which largely follows the Petit Lenormand tradition. The artwork is beautiful: simple, yet attractive. The style is an interestingly modern take on old-fashioned, with dark sepia tones and Victorian-looking clothing and objects. There are plenty of roses in the cards as a wink to the title, which itself is a wink to the Roman phrase “sub rosa”, meaning “confidential”.

The cards have pretty titles along the bottom and give the Lenormand numbering in a small circle in the top left hand corner, and an abbreviated playing card symbol in a square at the bottom right corner - covering all the interpretive bases most Lenormand readers use. The cardstock is of a nice quality, and the size is traditional Bridge size: 5.7cms by 8.9cms or 2.25 inches by 3.5 inches. There is a black border with roses and vines twining around the straight lines that delineate the images, and a graduated cream/brown border around the edges.

The biggest change that has been made from traditional decks is that there are two Lady and two Gentleman cards, one each of European and African descent. However, both versions retain the original numbering. So, you can choose which card to include based on the ethnicity of your client or on personal preference. You can also use either two ladies or two gentlemen if reading for a same-sex couple. Or else leave all four cards in if there are a lot of people involved in the situation. There is also an alternate Child card, to balance the genders.

The changes don’t end there, though. Some of the cards have also been renamed - the Tower becomes the Clock Tower while, the Heart becomes the Locket, a lovely way of treating this image. So, too, the Coffin becomes the Grave - in some ways a clearer, more striking depiction that fits better with modern sensibilities - and the Book becomes the Journal, which I think is my favourite change. It gives that sense of things being hidden, but also of study, really nicely. Finally, the Scythe becomes the Sickle: easier to handle, I guess.

Nevertheless, the cards are fairly clear and easy to read: you can tell what each card is at a glance. There is a lot of charm and a touch of cute to these cards, with their slightly dark tones, yet sweet images. Altogether, this is a very pretty, accessible deck, which will appeal to established Lenormand readers as well as beginners.

5.0 out of 5 stars My 1st deck of Lenormands and i love them., 17 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Under the Roses Lenormand (Hardcover)
My 1st deck of Lenormands and i love them.... When i 1st got them before working with the cards i shuffled and asked what mine and the cards relationship was going to be like, how was we going to get on.

And i pulled the Man + Lady + Lilies.......... I couldnt believe my eyes when i seen the cards i didnt even need to look at the interpretations as i just knew what they were telling me - Lady being me, Man being my spirit guide (my dad) Lilies someone older who's passed away, Lilies can also mean harmony so me and my dad will be working together in harmony.
Perfect !

These are very pretty cards. The colouring is a little subdued, but that is the style of the cards and they are quite easy to read if you have any experience of Lenormand cards.

The information booklet with the cards is minimal, so unconfident readers may want to make sure that they also purchase a guide if they don't own one already.

Very beautiful cards, with gentle, romantic imagery. I do like that it has alternative cards for the Lady, Gentleman and Child.
