"Rosie Bjorkman, Initiator and founder of the Third Jolanda, who is also professor of witchcraft, known in the media as 'nation-witch'. Rosie has written the book "Jolanda, the third book about the tarot and witchcraft". She uses her own deck of cards, which the famous artist Hans Arnold has illustrated."
Don't let the bland yellow box put you off!. This deck is rich in life, colour, detail and symbolism, and not your usual run of the mill symbolism either. Although it keeps to the basic system of Rider-Waite system, it offers unusual symbols instead, conveying the traditional meanings and yet allowing for so much more insight and interpretation. It's a very intriguing and enjoyable deck with a difference!
Good for the beginner with its easy to understand symbolism and great for the experienced reader who is looking for something different.
The cards are larger than normal size, with a good thickness and finish and come in their own box with LWB that gives simple keywords for each card.
All in all, a nice Deck though, but the Cards are quite thin and so are not of the best quality, yet these are not as cheap price-wise as many other Decks of perhaps better quality I've been purchasing lately...
It might not be the most vibrant and colourful Deck out there, but I do find the artwork very appealing.

Now onto what I'm not so fond of. The cards have a bright lilac border, which is okay, but in original Swedish they had a lovely pale grey which suited them a bit better. Just knowing that leaves a bit to be desired for me. The back of each card has a dragonfly image that cannot be reversed! If you like to read reversed meanings like myself, this is a problem. The little white book is terribly translated, very vague and otherwise useless. So I would not suggest this deck as a first one, unless you buy another tarot meanings book with it.
Overall, I bought this because the artwork is very charming. The meanings tend to stick to the Rider Waite tarot which is a positive, too. The card stock quality is in the middle. Not the best, but not the worst. Some reviews on another site state that the colours on this translated version are more vibrant and details can be seen more easily. Unfortunately, this deck isn't one of my favorite decks, but I really wanted it to be.
