I really, really like the book. It's not a typical Lenormand LWB, it's chunky and it includes reverse meanings, which is not traditional Lenormand. It also includes Gypsy meanings, and different spreads. So I presume their aim was to truly do an Oracle deck, not just straight Lenormand. In this I feel they have succeeded.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
The cards are very nice. I think they are larger then the usual Lenormand styled cards. These are about the size of a Tarot card. They have the card inserts and the watercolor paintings. It also comes with a booklet of instructions, in English, that give the definitions as well as two layouts.
The main reason I subtracted one star, is that the spreads/layouts offered in the simple book are not very practical. The first spread you are to do on New Years Day... so it's a spread you'll use once a year? If you had 2 spreads to give your readers, why would you pick that one? The other spread is more useful. However, the books definitions of the cards also seemed to waiver what I read from other authorities on Lenormand.
Another reason, I took off a star... if your style is to use direction of the card (i.e. man faces woman, man faces away from woman) to influence the meaning - this deck will be frustrating. The man and woman cards both face the same direction. So they will never face each other. Likewise the clouds are not split light on the left, dark on the right. So if you go by a card bordering the light side, you'll either have to infer left = light or not using that method of meaning.
I think if you are new to Lenormand (like me) this is a great card set. It looks beautiful and has a great feel to it. But you'll need to follow the advice from another source then the accompanied book most likely.
I noticed the book does card reversals... I hadn't heard of that before from other Lenormand teachers. In fact it seems almost alone on the matter.
At any rate, it's a great deck. There are so few to actually find easily obtainable in the states. This one you can get via Amazon Prime, and it looks great.
Since they are so large, it does mean you would need a very large area to lay out a Grand Tableau. However, if you have the space to do so, then these cards can come in handy - especially if you are the sort who also likes to read the House cards in a GT. The large size of these cards actually works out well to be the "house cards" in a GT while a more normal-sized deck of Lenormand cards would be shuffled and laid on top for a GT reading. In fact, I used one of the cards in this deck as a tracer onto a piece of fabric to create my own Lenormand GT spread cloth.
Set includes a mini book with 159 pages of instructions, has upright and reversed meanings for each card plus some layouts.
Each card is 3.50 x 4 7/8 inches. book is same dimentions.
The cards are bigger than im used to using, i find the size hard to shuffle.
The artwork i do like alot. I've always been a fan of victorian era art.
Over all nice set and have enjoyed so far. I would recommend. just keep in mind they are large.
This is a second set i had to order. The first set was missing a card but returned to amazon for a replacement with no problem
I know I'm being picky but I'm just calling it like I see it. I'll post photos of what I'm talking about.
