Review by little_crow
I picked up this deck at a bookstore I worked at
because it was cheap and new. When I took a closer look at
it, I wasn't very happy with it at all.
I like the
decks I buy to either be well-suited to my personality
and needs, so that I can use it in my tarot readings,
or interesting and beautiful, so that it makes an
good addition to my tarot collection (or both). I
thought this deck was neither.
I was disappointed with
the artwork. It consists of images from old paintings
cut and pasted into the symbols of the major arcana. I
thought the cutting and pasting was done pretty sloppily,
and the images are not strong because little thought
must have been given to the meaning of the card. And
even if I did like the artwork, the cards are too big
for my hands to shuffle comfortably.
The book that
came with the deck was actually not that bad,
describing pretty well how to do a tarot reading completely
on the subject of love and relationships using the
major arcana, but I won't be using this deck.
