From the Author
note from the illustrator Lisa Hunt
The unique aspect of Shapeshifter Tarot is that all 81 images were created exclusively for this deck. The illustrator worked closely with the authors to create a series of images that exemplify "oneness" and act as a vehicle of greater understanding. This body of work reflects the artist's deep love of mythology, shapeshifting images and the environment

Sometimes it's very hard to call upon the wisdom of a tarot deck, especially when you are in a fragile point in your life. Sometimes it's easier to just "not know".
The Shapeshifter tarot has guided me over many hurdles with it's brutally honest, in your face, wisdom. How can the cards know just what I am avoiding facing and gently steer me toward resolution?
These cards are insightful and honest and gentle all at the same time. The images are a catalyst for introspection. Very well done indeed!
So, I put it to one side and hoped I would see it again.
Today finally it is in my hands, and the artwork is very beautiful I felt so much love and effort had gone into this and the card you see on the front of the deck, looks to me how spirit should be approachable and safe.
If you want a safe approachable deck this is very good, but it is not all bluffness it does have much info in there which goes a lot deeper.
