I love this tarot deck the artwork is really lovely and the way the cards are presented is aesthetically pleasing. This pack includes a complete 78 card deck plus a reasonable booklet which gives you very basic meanings for the cards (including reversals) and also has some suggestions for spreads.

Things I love about this deck:

* the artwork - clear, very pleasing to the eye, cute.

* the reverse of the cards show a tree with apples on it and is reversible (i.e. you would be able to tell that a card is reversed without having to turn it over).

* uses lovely pastel shades with a touch of vibrant shades to balance the deck and avoids it becoming bland.

* the Devil has a picture of a girl with a red angel on one shoulder and a white angel on the other - a much more toned down image than is used in other decks.

* the Death card depicts a woman looking at a new sapling whilst in the background a fully grown tree has withered and died - no Grim Reapers or skeletons here.

Things that I didn't like so much about these cards:

* PIP CARDS ARE NOT PICTORIAL! Having put so much effort in toning down the more intimidating cards like the Tower, Hanged Man, Death and Devil and making them into less fearful, almost 'cute' cards to encourage the beginner, they then go and make the pip cards just the number of the items itself - i.e. the famous 9 of Swords is just 9 Swords - no women having nightmares or looking anguished. As a beginner how will you intuit the meanings of these cards?

I had become interested in Tarot and wanted a deck of cards so I could learn to do readings for myself. Obviously looking for a set that would be simple and easy to understand. At the time I wanted a tarot deck where I to be able to carry out a reading and look to the guide, as almost like a bible, for the exact interpretation written in the book. The book contains the upright and reversed meanings for each of the cards in the Tarot. Although these descriptions are good for giving a basic interpretation, I was hoping for slightly more descriptive in-depth meanings. On the plus side, the book does show different ways of doing a reading and describes when you might use them.
Unless you're not really that interested in learning to read the Tarot, or if it's for someone young or just want a deck more for the odd-occasional use, then this Tarot set is a good option. The major arcana cards are beautifully illustrated with bright, bold colours and more 'friendly' illustrations on some of the more daunting cards than most decks. Hence why it would be a good choice for younger people. For example, the death card in this deck shows instead, a woman standing next to a blossoming tree and behind her, one that has withered away. Personally, I think it's also a nice reminder, and an easy-to-understand symbolic image of the card's true meaning.
My biggest problem with this deck is that none of the minor arcana cards are pictured, which therefore makes it hard to interpret them and unless you have a good memory, means you then need to look up the meaning in the book. This I've found tends to get a bit annoying after a while.
Also the cards are quite big to handle, and if you have small hands, attempting to shuffle 78 of them isn't easy!

i really liked the tone adopted by the writer in this book - informative but readable and very easy to use. Although other card sets have modern imagery, this is one the best for me, with its strong colors and insightful interpretations.

For a long time I've been meaning to learn to read Tarot cards. With no prior experience and very little knowledge I wanted a deck that was straightforward and an instruction book that would tell me the meaning of the cards, the various types of readings and how to lay a reading. "The Art of Tarot" does just that.

The deck is not frightful and some of the scary cards were toned down, at the same time, the booklet gave a good meaning for each card, giving each of the major arcana keywords to help your learning process. It also has the meaning of the reversed cards, which is so much more than the opposite of upright. Although I can see how it is useful for a beginner to know when a card is reversed before folding it it sort of goes against the premise that you should fold the card as you feel you should. Personally, when I see a reversed card, I tend to leave it reversed. However, this is a beginners' set, it's great to learn and you could always get more professional deck later if you've learnt how to interpret the cards and intend to take Tarot really seriously.

The only downside is that the cards don't come in a velvet pouch but you can keep your deck and booklet in the handy sturdy box.
