Beautiful AND practical!,
This review is from: Golden Tarot (Cards)
This deck is really beautiful, it's a collaged deck, but there is very little to remind you of that when you're using it as it's so well done. It's stunningly presented, much more luxurious than your average deck. Those who dislike plastic laminate and ugly white borders will be thrilled to discover that this deck has neither, plus it has gilt edges, unobtrusive patterned backs and is made from very good quality card. It comes in a very sturdy box, not just a thin tuck box, but a rigid case which also contains the lovely little book which comes with it which, although small, gives a lot more detail than the average Little White Book you get with most decks.
The colours and textures are really wonderful, and those who are already familiar with the Rider Waite Smith deck/ system will be able to read with it straight away with no study required. Being true to the RWS system means it's also ideal for beginners with the added advantage that it's so beautiful, you'll soon learn to read these cards as you won't want to put them down!
It seems to me that there is great variety between the cards, yet the style is continuous throughout the deck. There are so many wonderful little details in it, the animals and creatures, babies playing harps... you just keep on noticing little things every time you look at it. A wonderful deck!
