Format: Paperback
Marie White conceived this deck as a synthesis of the Waite-Smith, Thoth and Marseille decks, but it's so much more. She adds an extra layer of her own, a new way of viewing the images and meanings of the cards.

For instance, the 5 of Cups, normally a card of bitterness and regret, is presented as an 8-legged unicorn, the fountain of life and the two trees in the garden of Eden: the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, and the Tree of Eternal Life. What does this mean? It means that we find heaven within ourselves, and that by eating the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil (so that's "good times and bad times") we come closer to the fountain, to the mythic unicorn, Sleppnir, Odin's mount, and the Tree of Eternal Life.

I'll be the first to admit I'm a very fussy woman, having spent 5 years studying painting and as an artist subsequently, with very rigid ideas about what makes good technical ability, and I have to say that Marie's artwork ticks every box on my checklist and more. Using oil paint to seal the deal, each card is a mini masterpiece in itself, with only a couple of images that didn't quite make it for me.

The only other problem I have with this deck is the stickiness of the surface of the cards that make them hard to shuffle at first, although this becomes slightly easier with use. I'm also worried that the plastic coating of the cards is not permanent and might start peeling off with time, this is a complaint I'm reading a lot about this deck and it would be something that the publishers will want to address in subsequent reprints. That being said, the cards are nice and big and the stock is good, heavy and thick, which gives the cards a icon-like feel which I like a lot.

Although loving this deck on first inspection, along with the equally beautiful book, all enclosed in a stunning magnetic closing box, it took a while to get used to the glossy deck for reading purposes.
Also, the first box had to be returned, due to the deck missing a card, amazon were very quick in posting a replacement, everything is fine. I now love this deck, it is very different, having its own style whilst drawing on the 'Thoth' deck in some of the images I feel. You just have to buy this deck,especially if a collector, however this doesn't mean you'll be lost if you're just becoming proficient. Stunning.

WOW, just WOW, buy it, you'll love it.

Such nice large cards and great presentation which really bring out the paintings and make me want to spend time with them.

Haven't gotten around to reading the book yet, so no comment on that.

I am in love with this Tarot. Works perfectly for me, although they seems too big for my hand. But I learned to hold them in other way, so it is fine.
