Hit And Miss

This deck is simply called 'Tarot', and I use the title 'Tarot Jonathan Dee' in order to distinguish it from other decks that have the same one-word name. The Major cards have been fashioned after the Rider-Waite Tarot and are slightly crudely drawn. Some of the faces lack expression, whilst The Empress and the Emperor both look rather angry.
The Minor cards are drawn in 'pip' formations, although a few cards in the suit of Wands (two, three, four, five, six) do have extra symbols. What this deck lacks in terms of finesse, is compensated for by the accompanying book. It is an easy read and is well-organised. The written descriptions of the Major cards are very interesting and informative, whilst the information for the four suits is compact, incorporating a single-word prompt for each card.
I have two editions of this deck. This is the one I bought first, and although I didn't realize I was buying the same deck when I got the second edition, I would probably have bought it anyway, as it is 'A Tin of Tarot'.
