5.0 out of 5 stars Good art, lots of mythology, 18 Jan 2006
ILONACAT (WIRRAL, ENGLAND) - See all my reviews
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Babylonian Tarot (Cards)
This recently-published Tarot is to be commended on several points.
First, it is written by Sandra Tabatha Cicero, a world-renowned Tarot scholar and one of the few people in the world today who really are steeped in the traditions of the Golden Dawn. If this sounds daunting, don't be daunted-the book is intelligently and clearly-written, not patronizing and not obscure, either.
Second, the art work (also by Cicero), is good. The Majors and Minors are in full (but not gaudy) colour and the Minors are not simply pips-they have the symbol on them (e.g. Six of Cups) but also a small picture at the centre of the card. Personally, I find this much more satisfying than the symbol on its own.
Third, the basis of this Tarot deck is the mythology of the ancient Babylonians, so if you enjoy stories, and gods, and monsters, and so on, this will be a real treasure. I approached the deck knowing little of this pantheon-I'm delighted to be extending my knowledge of mythology AND have an attractive and well-thought out Tarot at the same time.
