5.0 out of 5 stars Retro heaven...., 24 April 2008
This review is from: Morgan Greer Tarot (Cards)
I always loved the Rider Waite 'formula' and structure, but the images are less than inspiring, and most of the re-coloured versions are worse than the standard one. The Morgan Greer deck has everything the Rider Waite has, but it's gorgeous. It has deep, rich, warm colours which seem all the more sumptuous as the cards are borderless, allowing the images to flow together during readings. The 70s imagery is superb- moustaches, strange head-wear and thick, flowing hair on the ladies... it's a piece of retro heaven. It makes me think that if you had a Mum or Aunt who read cards, this would be the deck they'd have! Very comforting. It reads very well indeed, and there are no 'horrid' cards to spoil the deck as with some Tarots! This edition has slightly glossy card, but it's not thickly coated with plastic, and it shuffles very nicely.

Whilst I can see that it's not everyone's cup of tea, indeed some people dislike the very things which I love about it, but for me it's top notch. All the symbolism is there, and the meanings are very obvious if you know the Rider Waite deck already, otherwise it's ideal for learning on. After all these years, yes it does look dated, but in a tarot deck this is not a bad thing, but something to be cherished and enjoyed. It's a real classic, and the fact that it's still in print after all this time should tell you something.
