5.0 out of 5 stars Tarot Chiropterrix, 8 Jan 2005
This review is from: Vampire Tarot Deck (Cards)
This is not your standard RWS or Swiss tarot, accept that and we shall get along splendidly. The images often bare little of the traditional symolism which seems to upset one reviewer, however I call that an advantage. It gives one cause to look at the pictures, to examine the personal meanings of each card. Using this deck one cannot simply lay a card and recite it's meaning by rote. I am quite the vampirophile and on this fromt I cannot comlain either, the vampires (or 'bats' as the artist calls them, hence the title of my review) are stylish and unique, yes, but that is no bad thing. The Fool and Magician are particularly superb. The pip cards each have their own style, the Swords all show tormented stone statuary danced around my swords whilst the wands show portraites of vampires. All of the major arcana images are splendidly macarbre from 0, a painted harlequin licking blood from a razor to 21, a vampiress at large in a dormitory of sleeping maids. As for the sun, well, use your imagination, I think you know what it is. Personaly, I'd hang the sun image on my wall if it were large enough.
If you expect to get bad nerws from a reading and your Rider-Waite-Smith just doesn't seem man enough for the job, this is the deck you need.
