About the Author
Anna Franklin has been a witch for thirty years, and a Pagan in her heart for all her life. She has conducted many rituals, handfastings, and sabbat rites. She is the High Priestess of the Hearth of Arianrhod, a coven of the Coranieid Clan, a group of traditional Witches with their roots in the New Forest, and branches in several parts of the UK. She is the author of eighteen books on the Craft, including Midsummer, Lammas (with Paul Mason), and The Fairy Ring. Paul Mason was a Pagan artist, photographer, and illustrator best known for his stunning photomontage images and book jacket designs. He has worked previously with Franklin as the co-author of Lammas.

As always the success of this deck will be determined by such practical factors as the inherent strength of card used (in this case a decent weight) the size of the cards for shuffling (a little large even for a mans pair of hands) and the presentation of the images (great - though we were not keen on such a large border to each card).
It will also be dependent upon the buyers interests in the subject matter of the theme (the Celtic traidition has been well represented in the major arcana of this deck).
In all these areas this deck fairly well ticks all the boxes for me but where it fails BIG time is in the fact that the 15th Arcanum THE DEVIL has been completely removed and replaced with the 16th Arcanaum 'The Tower' in this deck.
Quite frankly with no DEVIL in a deck the whole light/dark balance so enjoyed by most Tarot students has been lost leaving a deck that fails to get to the true depths of Celtic mythology and Pagan tradition.
With no explanation as to why this was done from the authors or publishers it is confusing why they chose to depart from core Tarot philosophy.
This is a deck that has some great strengths and lovely features but which still keeps the race open for the creation of a really good Pagan Tarot.
Please note that the independent assessment of this book has been taken from a review copy kindly supplied by PGUK, London.
