Just not for me...,
This review is from: Fantastical Tarot Deck (Cards)
I got this deck after seeing some samples of the cards online, which I was really drawn to, but unfortunately when I got the deck itself, it just left me cold.
I just couldn't connect with the images and didn't feel I could read with the cards. Some of the more traditional Tarot archetypes have been re-drawn to fit the style of the deck (e.g. The Empress is cold and gaunt, in comparision to the typical pregnant and glowing...) and I found the new interpretations difficult to work with.
In the end, I gave the deck to a friend, who loved it...!
The idea behind this deck is quite wonderful but I think that the execution just needed a bit more attention. It could have been brilliant, but it just left me disappointed.
On a side note, I found that the gold borders of the cards were quite easy to chip, so they need careful handling.
