If you take this deck straight out of the box and preceed to examine the Major Arcana you will certainly be impressed by the artwork. The tower is a delight in itself. However some of the cards appear to have been created from photgraphs, while this isn't bad in itself. It affects the balance throught the deck, some of the Minor Arcana are very "contenporary" and could almost be from a different deck, this may confuse the begginer. However, this desk should not fall shy of the serious Tarot reader, whcih no doubt will have more than one deck.

A good deck for those that like vibrant colours and lovely pictures. Excellent as a secondary deck once you understand the symbols of a standard deck. A little complicated as a starting deck as some of the symbols are quite advanced.

But there are some that seem unfinished compared to the rest. The major arcana are very polished and complete for the most part. They each have their own wonderful character and symbolism. The Tower happens to be my favorite art of the deck. But some are a little disappointing. Such as the Emporer whose face is very obviously pasted onto a feminine-like body, with out very much attempt to intigrate the photo with the drawing. Some of the minor arcana are also very finished. Most of the pentacles are very pleasing and the five of cups is very vivid and clear about its meaining. However cards such as the the prince of wands are very blurred and undefined. Basically, I notice a pattern that the male figures are generally less finished looking than the female figures. Also many of the mens faces are similar. The king of swords and the Emperor cards have the exact same picture pasted on as the man's face. Even the prince of wands, prince of cups, two of cups, and ten of cups have male faces very similar to eachother. For a deck that seems so diversified otherwise, I would expect less repetition of images. Finally, the booklet is quite well put together, but it is not for beginers. The information, especially on the minor arcana is really sparse.

The Gendron Tarot is bright, full of beauty and detail, with clever and thought provoking use of symbolism through animals, scenery and multi-cultural figures. It isn't as obvious as the traditional Rider-Waite but offers a refreshing, positive and uplifting take on the Rider-Waite symbolism.

The suits have a faint tint over the cards to emphasise their meanings, for example, all the cards in the suit of Cups have a light pink tint.

The Gendron Tarot has a slightly quirky appeal, because the different styles of art don't appear to have been blended together that well. For example, some of the faces appear to have been stuck on to the rest of the picture. Personally I like this effect, it gives the decks character and charm and makes it fun to use and certainly doesn't take away from the meaning. The borders are fairly minimal too, and the backs have a reversible image.

I would say that it would be suited to someone who is already familiar with the Rider-Waite and would be great for someone who is looking for something expansive and uplifting.

The cards are standard sized, strong and highly glossy.
