'Renowned fantasy artist Stephanie Pui-Mun Law helps you escape into a magical world of fairies and fantasy with her beautiful Tarot pack, which fuses Asian, Celtic and fantasy elements within the Rider-Waite structure.'
--Prediction, July 2010
About the Author
Stephanie Pui-Mun Law (Oakland, California) is a professional artist whose fantasy illustrations have been commissioned by various game and book publishers. Author and illustrator for the book Dreamscapes, her work also regularly appears in the magazines Realms of Fantasy, Cricket, and Cicada. Visit her online at www.shadowscapes.com.In the early 1990s, at a party, someone put a tarot deck in Barbara's hands; she's held on tightly ever since. Tarot provides just enough structure so that we don't get lost as we explore the mysteries, plumb our dark corners, and locate our North Stars. Barbara has been reading and writing for as long as she can remember. She's published a number of books on tarot, including Tarot for Beginners, Tarot Spreads, The Steampunk Tarot, The Gilded Tarot, The Mystic Dreamer Tarot, and Tarot of the Hidden Realm. Writing is solitary work and is relieved by teaching tarot at conferences around the world. Barbara also loves working directly with clients, helping them uncover guidance and insight in the cards.

However, the printing doesn't do it justice -- the standard size cards are a little too small, and details end up getting lost -- you could see the originals on her website, it's much larger, so it would have been nice if the cards are printed say, at twice the standard sizing.
The book is sufficient for someone who's never done a tarot reading before -- but I'm not planning on using these cards for readings; they're just too beautiful for any wear and tear.
Lastly, Amazon ships this in a normal book cardboard sleeve, but the case itself is not fully filled out, so it WILL get at least a creased corner, or in my case, a whole side squashed. I do hope Amazon takes some care in packaging this in the future -- the case itself is quite pretty as well so it's not that pleasant to receive a squashed case.
Please make a revised edition with bigger & better quality cards. With these I feel someone is laughing all the way to the bank, but I doubt it's the artist
On the other negative side, still, when you get the deck, the deck is in a plastic bag, there is no actually bag where you can keep your deck from going all over the box. Again, my Enchanted oracle is the same, you get it in a wrapping and you are basically alone for the storage of the cards. Llewellyn must use the same card stock for all their cards as it does feel a familiar deck that way.
Going to the positives, this is my "fairy tarot deck." and I just adore the artwork, if the cards were the same size roughly as they are in the book, we (he readers) will all be saved from fatigue trying to work with busy cards. The artwork is adorable and so unique. Just a shame Llewellyn have decided to destroy the experience somewhat. I am not buying anymore decks from Llewellyn as I am really disappointed. La Scarabeo yes, Llewellyn no.
I feel sorry for the lovely Ms Law. :(
I must agree, however, with the above reviewer who noted that the colours are fuzzy and the images not very clear...I was very disappointed in this aspect of the deck. I would love to see these cards done in a larger size, in order to show off the amazingly rich detail and the luminous, jewel-like colours that Stephanie used. That having been said, it certainly doesn't detract from the experience of using the cards.Read more ›
