This deck basically reprises the scenes from the Waite deck, but they are re-colored and placed in wide, vari-colored borders. The card names, suit names and court are the same as those in the Rider Waite deck. The Waite scenes have been recolored, and I like the changes made. The colors are somewhat softer and the background colors tend to be a blend of complementary colors, rather than the solid primary colors of the more popular version of the deck. Most of the borders are quite attractive. The colors used generally complement those in the central scene, and the styles are also somewhat evocative of the mood of the scene. The little booklet that comes with this deck begins with a very brief background section. Meanings for each card follow with an upright meaning, an inverted meaning and a brief message. Following the card meanings, "The Diamond Reading Method" is explained in detail. This is a somewhat involved five card spread. I recommend this deck for anyone who likes the Waite deck but wants to try something that looks a bit different. Obviously there is no learning curve involved for those familiar with the Waite deck and some may find the coloring and borders useful in interpreting the cards.
