I first bought this beautiful set of cards with the wise and well-written book about a decade ago. It soon became a firm favourite but I did find the book rather difficult to travel with, it being a hardback. So I am VERY pleased that the cards have now been brought out with a booklet. Having said that, the booklet only offers interpretations of the animals depicted-it doesn't contain the myths-so I would suggest having BOTH this deck (for portability) and the original cards-with-hardback for the deeper work.

The paintings of each animal are breathtaking. All animals depicted are or have been native to the British Isles, except the four dragons (Earth, Air, Water and Fire) which are included, I presume, to add extra depth. The book is written by the Carr-Gomms, both eminent contemporary Druids. They really do know their stuff !

There's nothing fluffy-bunny about these cards or about the book.Both are very grounded in tradition without being stuffy. There is no psychobabble or other annoying jargon.

Drawn to buy these because of the beautiful art work. The booklet accompanying is very valid - giving helpful easily understandable reasons for why this animal or bird is relevant - it's skills or style etc etc. and it is good to have animals that I can connect with too ie British and familiar. Recommended.

I so love the deck. It's upsetting that this one doesn't come with a book like on The Druid Craft, When I purchased The Druid Craft it came with a book, I believe now you can purchase it w/o book but the book is a treasure you need buy the Druid Craft with it's book. The deck is beautifully illustrated!! can't go wrong with your choice if you decide to buy this deck, Next target is WIldWood xxx

These cards have some lovely detail. The British Isles are so full of magic and sacred archeology they are the archetypal soul of the land..these cards connect the ancient art of the ancestors with the native species of the UK, very nicely done. I use these cards for meditations on animal totems as I see the animals as a reflection of my own consciousness.

I already have the book with the cards, however, I wanted to keep the original cards and have a spare set for readings. These cards have excellent artwork but can take a little while to study all of the 'hidden' plants etc... which help define the cards. If you're willing to put in the time to learn these cards they will reward you with accurate readings. A plus with this set is that you have several blank cards so you can draw or glue on pictures of other animals that you yourself feel should be there. All in all an excellent oracle deck.

I have been looking for a set of animal cards and a set of druid cards and this beautifully illustrated set satisfies my interest on both counts. I was a little disappointed in the book and feel there must be more to say about the chosen animals and their significance and would like to learn more. I have read somewhere that there was a much more detailed hard back book. Does anyone know where it can be found? I have used the cards on several occasions and, although they are large to handle, I find them quite revealing even though the book lacks detail.

I love this deck. The art work, the energy. I just wish more thought had gone into how they handle and feel. Very difficult to shuffle and spread, but very worth getting.

This deck is beautifully illustrated. The pictures themselves connect with various myths and legends through the animals in the deck, and for those acquainted with the Ogham there are also references in the artwork to help with deeper interpretation. A lovely deck, but may be better for those with some understanding of Celtic myth and legend to identify with the characteristics and strengths of the individual animals.

A wonderful deck. Beautifully illustrated with clear meanings and interpretations. It fits and combines really well with the Druid Plant Oracle too. It speaks from a deeper place.

I love these cards, the illustrations are beautiful. There is a fair amount of symbolism in each card, not too much to be overwhelmed with it as I've seen in some decks. The booklet that comes in this set gives enough explanation to get you going without overdoing it.

My only issue is the size of the cards, I think they are an A6 size, making it awkward to shuffle. This is however my favourite deck despite of its awkward size.
