Format: Hardcover
The Matthews have produced so many books and decks, in some ways this one strikes me as something a bit churned out, a product. I have no idea if this has to do with constraints placed upon Matthews by her publisher, but the companion book feels a bit like someone somewhere suggested, 'Hey, how about a Celtic themed oracle?' and Matthews responded, 'Oh yeah, I can crank that out in my sleep,' and dashed the companion book off by calling upon her formidable knowledge of lore and tradition. OR, it could be that her publishers said, 'Nope, keep it simple, you only get half a page per card.' Hard to say, feels like possibly a combination of things.

What's included
The Celtic Wisdom Oracle comes in a typical Watkins Publishers box, a sturdy, upright box with a lid that slides neatly over the top. Inside, most of the box is filled with cardboard inserts that create compartments to hold an 88-page companion book, a fold-out 'Sun Circle Sheet', and a 40-card oracle deck: 8 'Divine Ancestors' and 32 'Common Ancestors of the Clan'.

The cards
The cards are relatively thin, slightly floppy stock, with a shiny lamination. They are vivid in colouring and have only a very thin white outer border. The rounding on the corners of my particular deck seems quite notchy, I intend to have a go with my 5mm corner rounder to make them feel less squared-off. That is a small matter, though, and most people would likely not notice it. The backs are particularly lovely, a pale green with a light cream Celtic knotwork pattern, borderless.

Each card has a thin, decorative inner border of Celtic design. At the bottom of each card is the title and a small symbol to denote which 'Clan' the card belongs in. There are four: Truth, Honour, Sovereignty and Wisdom.

For some reason I just haven't clicked with this kit.I'm not going to be negative about it,there's nothing really wrong with it,we just don't seem to connect which is a shame and I'm not really sure why-maybe its just an energy thing lol!
The book is well-written,with spreads to try and interpretations for the cards both upright and reversed,along with info on celtic mythology.
The cards themselves are nicely detailed, with pretty colouring and are well-made.
