What's Included
Golden Dawn Magical Tarot comes in a typical Llewellyn box: oversized, flimsy and coming apart at the seams upon arrival. When I opened my parcel, I could feel something sliding around inside the box, tore off the outer shrink wrap, and the side of the box (not the top flap) came open because the glue was dried out. I opened the box and the deck slid out onto the table, not in its own tuck box but only wrapped in cellophane, like a pack of cigarettes. I dumped the remaining contents out: a white bit supposedly meant to hold the deck in place, but nothing like the same size or shape as the deck, and a companion book called 'The New Golden Dawn Ritual Tarot'.

The Cards
The cards are not particularly thick nor thin and have a slight lamination with a matte finish. The card back is a borderless black background, with a red cross atop a white pyramid, inside of which is a half sun, which also resembles a cog. Must be some sort of Golden Dawn logo. The fronts of the cards have a white outer border, then elaborate black line borders which echo the Egyptian/Deco style of the Thoth. The cards measure 4.5 x 3 inches (11.5 x 8 cm), and the actual image on each card is 3.25 x 2.75 inches (roughly 8 x 6 cm). So there is a lot of white on the card, which might bother some people. Stacked, the deck is just under 1 inch thick (2.75 cm).

Some of the cards of my particular deck are printed crooked on the card, particularly in the Pentacles suit. This is quite noticeable when examining the deck, but I don't think it will detract when using for actual readings, when the focus locks onto the actual image to the exclusion of all else. It's been my experience that many apparent deal breakers fade into the background during readings.

very pleased with this tarot deck , It is very clear to use although I often supplement it with the rider-waite deck...but the symbolism is excellent and thorough on the major arcana. The minor arcana I find if I use the rider-waite then it assists my visualisation until I get to know it better...a fantiastic deck....I use it for my own readings. For other peoples readings Im using the rider-waite still until I get really familiar with this one. To me this seems to be a very accurate deck , especially when used in conjunction with the book by the Ciceros which is extremely detailed and informative. A must have together with the tarot cards in my opinion. It certainly assists one with readings and interpretations

Summarises a wealth of information. The wee book that accompanies the deck is a concentrated primer and basis for a multitude of workings.

I liked the way this deck comes with a little booklet which fits into an overall casing. As for the cards themselves, some of the designs are innovative and whilst I admit I really like this deck, I found some of the cards garish. I like the way the minor arcana have keywords of meaning at the bottom and the major trumps have their path attributation in terms of the hebrew letters (from the Golden Dawn arrangement). I felt a little let down by the minor arcana as the images are very basic eg 4 of swords only has a picture of literally 4 swords. There seems to be a lesser level of detail on the minor trumps than say the standard Rider-Waite deck. Although, I was impressed when I found most of the cards are painted in the system of the Golden Dawn flashing colours. The booklet which comes with the deck is comprehensive including a GD style ritual for consecrating the cards. The cards also have a distinctively egyptian-flavour and include symbolism from the GD rituals. Interestingly, I detected an undercurrent of Thelemic symbolism in some of the cards too. The deck is good as a divination tool, but it is clear that it is also designed for deeper use of the tarot such as meditation, ritual work etc.

I like this deck and would recommend it especially those into the Golden Dawn.
