Buckland Romani Tarot
The Buckland Romani Tarot is based around English gypsies and has expressive and beautiful artwork. The cards are borderless, and give the feeling that you could step into the picture. It isn't a standard Rider-Waite type deck; among other things, suits have been renamed to Koshes, Koros, Bolers and Chivs, (Staves, Cups, Wheels and Knives), and the Magician is shown as a woman. Previously out of print, it's available again from Galde Press.

Buckland Romani Tarot review by Colin Jones
Oh what a joy to look at, to feel, to touch. As soon as I opened the box, this pack spoke to me; spoke to my cultural heritage. This is a tarot pack which includes cards and a book. The cards have imagery taken from the British Rom culture, a culture often ignored. The British Rom community existed for many hundreds of years, but so much of it has now been lost. The western outpost of the Rom people was strong and vibrant and these cards portray that culture. The Buckland family are a well known and respected Romani family in Britain and Raymond Buckland has take this experience with him and draws on it often in his magickal works.
These cards talked to me so easily, brought me into contact with my father, helped me travel further down my road. These are the first cards I have us... read more reviews.
