The book also breaks each card down into three aspects, the 'dream' meaning of the card, which gives a literal description of the card itself and the message reflected. The second aspect is the awakening, which gives plain-spoken advice on how to put the message into action in your life, and the third aspect is the enchantment, with gives little rituals/visualizations one can use to further manifest the card's message.
As for the artwork, it is stunning and positive! Even Death looks jaunty, like he's about to break out in a tap dance routine at any moment. The ten of swords is the card I always turn to, to give me an idea of the energy behind a deck. The ten of swords (Ruin) in this deck is represented by a woman laying down the body of a young girl. It is somber as it should be, but depicts an air of resignation and acceptance. Most 10 of swords give me the heebie jeebies, this one I thin is perfect.
The Book is well worded, the cards have beautiful artwork and positive energy, it is my *very* favorite. I usually have something 'negative' to say in a review in the interest of honesty, but I can't think of anything negative about this one!
Another problem (and again, this is for me...as several reviewers have noted, each person has his/her own relationship with different decks) is that with their Victorian-type styling, they're a bit too "modern" for my taste. Anyone like me who connects strongly with mythical/folkloric archetypes may miss the more traditional symbolism that I'm used to in Tarot decks. I think that is the main reason these cards don't "speak" to me like other decks do.
Many of the reviews have mentioned the positive nature of the illustrations, and I have mixed feelings about this. This positivity does make the cards more non-threatening, but sometimes we need strong warnings about possible dire situations that may lie ahead. The Ten of Swords -should- be a frightening card, but the idea is that the cards surrounding it should give advice as to how to avoid or at least lessen the impact of the situation.
I do like the format of the book, although I have to give the same caveat as another reviewer did: Readers should read from the cards, not from the book. However, I think the exercises given in the book do help novice readers to begin to associate the meanings of the cards in their minds.
Overall, most of my problems with this deck come down to personal taste. I can certainly see why the deck has drawn so many good reviews, and again, different decks speak to different people. For me, though, this deck is in my collection merely for the artwork, since for divinatory purposes I just don't connect with it.
