Customer Review

on 21 April 2013
I was surprised by this deck.
Not only does it recreate the set of cards that Nostradamus started working on with his son, but it also manages to add a new dimension that almost feels like the i-ching to me.
Each card is linked to a few lines from the original Nostradamus quatrains. So with very spread you get a combination of Nostradamus lines that add a whole new dimension to the Tarot as a system.
I also like the fact that the accompanying book contains both the excellent translations of the quatrains by Caitlin Mattehws, but also the original French/latin lines.
The illustrations have a mediaeval feel to them and contain symbols that are both easily recognisable and very different from other Tarot decks. It feels like going back to the time before the Tarot was created.
This is not a simple 'let's do something with Nostradamus' deck. It actually adds interpretation layers to Nostradamus' work.
But that's what I have come to expect from any deck by John and Caitlin Matthews...
