This deck is newly printed (Summer 2008) as a mass market deck: some initial problems with supply seem to have been experienced although in my opinion this shouldn't panic anyone into parting with more than the list price for this deck. Amazon have had supplies both in the UK and in the US although they seem to be coming in fairly small batches at the time of writing and seem to be selling fast.

The Deviant Moon is a highly imaginative and well thought out deck set in a strange world. Both Majors and Minors are fully illustrated and anyone familiar with the Rider-Waite-Smith tradition will find the deck readable straight out of the box. The LWB offers short descriptions and key words specific to the deck. The cards are full of rich detail and this makes for a good reading deck. Some people (not all) find the images in this deck very dark and I would recommend that anyone considering purchase goes to the deck's website beforehand to read more about the deck and to view some of the cards.

It is a great deck and deserves a place in your deck collection. I'm not sure I would recommend it as your only deck since some of the images could be disturbing to some..... but go and have a look at some more cards to decide for yourself.

This deck is quite sick. The artwork is clear and compelling, its the evocative figures that make you feel 'wrong' inside. Its not horrific, gory or bloody, it just weirdly surreal. I bought it to face the 'dark side' as it were, and I am very pleased to own it even though to pick it up makes me feel like I am trying to make myself catch a big ugly spider. I think it has a lot to offer in terms of reading with it and I don't think it turns a reading into negative one but lends more truth to a reading instead.

It is based on the Rider-Waite and easy to read, although not quite as obvious.

The cards are well made, and a bit bigger than usual (taller and slimmer) and come in their own standard box.

As mentioned above, this review is of the second edition of this deck, which was printed in China. Against many expectations, the printing came out better than expected, with brighter, richer colours that are more true to PD's designs. The deck's creator has been selling first-edition decks via his website, and also offers decks wrapped in paper that he covers with his own hand-drawn designs. IMHO, to buy a deck, it's more special to find his website and buy direct from Patrick himself!

Anyway, in sales terms, this deck has been a game-changer, one of the most popular and influential for decades, and as such, does have its detractors. Some people criticise the "dark" symbolism, and say the characters are all in urban surroundings - this completely ignores the fact that all the suit of Wands and many other cards, including the Major Arcana, are in rural locations. Anyone who calls this a nasty, negative or dark deck, can't have seen the Ace of Wands - ot the other Aces for that matter, Temperance, The World, the 3 and 10 of Cups, or the wonderfully passionate Lovers.

When it does want to draw attention to something negative though, it doesn't hesitate to grab you and present you with an image and a feeling than will stay with you far more than any other deck. Many of use who use this deck and compare notes agree that this is a "tough love" deck. If it needs to tell you something straight, it will do so. There's no sugar coating, and no "there are no negative meanings" for the DM. I think of it as the sort of friend who'll support me, but also offer criticism when I need it, and a good kick up the backside if that's best for my own good.

I came to the DM after a good basic grouding in Rider-Waite type decks, and it is very different to those.

This is an amazing book - so much more than any other Tarot book I have seen. Each card comes alive with the story of the characters, and history of how he designed it. The large size does the illustrations justice and its amazing to see the sketches and inspiration as each one developed. For an artist, it's also a great guide on the thinking process and effort that goes into creating something like this. The advice offered and philosophy behind the cards is very rational, pragmatic and solid.

This is the book other Tarot writers need to be afraid of: Patrick has set a near-impossible bar with this book. Physically, it's enormous: a couple of centimetres shorter than a sheet of A4, over an inch thick (not including the covers and weighing in at nearly two kilos. The cover alone shows it means business: heavy embossed boards with the triumphal birth/emergence of the creature from the Six of Wands who appears on the front of the box of the bordered edition (but get the borderless edition: you can see so much more in the borderless deck). It's extensively illustrated throughout with not only the cards, but details, locations used to obtain sample textures used on the cards, and preliminary sketches. The paper is heavy and high quality, so the book "only" runs to 340 pages. As well as an explanation of the card meanings, Patrick gives us an insight into the evolution of the deck from his first sketches for the deck as a teenager.

I'm afraid I couldn't wait and ordered the book direct from Patrick. Also I followed his facebook page, nagging/encouraging him, along with many others, to get the book published. It's been a long wait, but it's been worth it. The detail is stunning, way more than I've seen in any other Tarot book written by the deck's author. Yes, it costs more than either version of the deck, but full page blow-ups of the cards, focus on the minutiae of the deck and Patrick's inimitable writing style... One confession: I bought two copies: one to use, read and refer to and another to sit on the shelf, being beautiful, until such a time comes that the "working" copy has suffered too much wear and tear. And if an electronic version is ever produced, I'll buy that as well.
