A unique and special deck,
This review is from: The Transparent Tarot (Misc. Supplies)
The Transparent is literally a new perspective on the tarot, taking it into three dimensions and adding a whole new world of possibilities for interpretation. Well done Emily, first for thinking up such an amazing concept, and then executing it so beautifully.
The deck is simply but elegantly packaged with a plain white cloth and the book is well written and well produced. The deck itself is pretty much regular size for tarot cards, but probably requires slightly more careful handling to preserve the finish. The artwork is simple and pared down - it's only when you see the cards in combination that the startling potential of this deck begins to reveal itself.
This is a new frontier for the tarot. I was lucky enough to witness the Transparent Tarot taking shape online at Aeclectic Tarot Forum and it's wonderful to see such an innovative idea finding its way into the marketplace. With so many tarot publishers retreading old ideas or playing it safe, I'm glad that Schiffer have taken a chance on the TT.
