A really beautifully illustrated deck of tarot cards, just such a shame they are so small!!! The size of the cards really doesn't do the pictures justice. Having got that off my chest, the cards are very easy to work with. I have been reading tarot for eighteen years (and am in possession of a number of decks) and these are a real treat to use. The detailed depictions on each card really draws the reader in and are very condusive to insightful, enlightening readings. Would recommend as a secondary deck only, just because of the size and not-so-great quality...I don't think they would stand up to a lifetime of wear and tear!
