Tarot of Northern Shadows
The Tarot of Northern Shadows is one deck that likes to use a lot of whitespace on its cards - the edges of each Norse scene are blurred into the large border. It's nice to see fairly life-like looking humans on the cards too.

Tarot of Northern Shadows review by Emily
My Tarot of Northern Shadows came yesterday, and because I canít find much information about this deck I thought I would post on my feelings.
First off it measures 12cm x 7cm, the card stock is good and flexible (if you have the Tarot of the Old Path Ė itís the same in size and quality) Ė The artwork seems to have been done in watercolours, its very good Ė Sylvia Gainsford has captured expressions on close up faces and even eye colour is evident in some of the cards, bodies, animals etc are all in proportion and I canít find a badly illustrated card in the deck. There is some nudity (8 cards altogether) male and female in the Majors but none in the Minors.
