The author/artist, Zach Wong, grew up in Malaysia. He has studied Western and Asian mythology. He now lives in Australia as a graphic designer and illustrator.
First the deck. There are 22 Major Arcana cards. There are four suits: cups, pentacles, swords and wands. Each suit contains 10 numbered cards and four court cards. In this deck, wands are fire, swords are air, pentacles are earth and cups are water. All cards are labeled with their number and their name.
The decks style is self described by the artist as "stained glass". As I went through the deck, I got a feeling of stained glass in some cards, but others were slightly suggestive of the manga style of art. Still others were very definitely Western in influence of both design and meaning. There is an overall Asian influence in his style, and it is refreshing rather than unsettling.
In the Major Arcana, the artist makes this note: Each character in the major arcana wears a mask over his or her face, which is depicted by lines that break the face down into sections. The mask is merely a representation of a "human" relations, similar to that of the mythical gods who stand in human form amongst us to ease our comprehension of the messages they deliver. Again, a refreshing new look at the meanings of the Major Arcana.
I also like the "mirror image" effect the artist used to denote reversal of the cards. This deck needs to be used by someone who uses reverse meanings in their readings. If you look at the Fool, in the upright position you can see the traditional representation.Read more ›
That said, whilst the cards may have been produced on good card stock in earlier years, now.......October 2013...... the card quality now is so flimsy, that holding them in my left hand and leafing through them 1 by1 with my right hand, was sufficient to warp entire deck! So when I did do a first spread, none of the cards laid flat on the table!
Now THAT is appalling quality! So, sadly, I wouldn't even dream of trying to use them as a professional deck.
Which is a sad state of affairs :/
I would happily pay more to have this deck on better quality card stock.....because it really does deserve to be made of better card, it is such a beaufitul deck.
So although I absolutely love the deck, the quality means only 3 stars.
I haven't read the book yet but I am not too hopeful, I figure I'll just use them when I am learning more about reversals than actually doing much reading.
I wouldn't have bought this if I would have picked it up in a shop and had a proper look.
