The Vespertine Tarot deck is all made digitally and has a uniformly rich fantasy feel. The pip cards are gorgeous, but the humans in the court cards and major arcana look distinctly computer generated.
I have gone to the website for these cards and I have had the pleasure of seeing these cards, appearing before my eyes, on Danielle's website, full of colour and light and seemingly already aware and full of energy. As I look at the images of her unpublished deck, they speak with such details that it surprises me considering I've never been able to touch, shuffle and throw these beautiful works of art.
Normally, I find the wands the most difficult and may I say, somewhat boring (even though they do represent action) cards of any deck. Danielle has brought such light into these cards that for the first time in over 10 years of reading cards, I find myself completely drawn to this suit. The ace, bursting with energy, the detail in the staff, the beauty of the sparks of light dancing around the card.
Her two of swords, at first, made me very uncomfortable, but when I enlarged the card and was able to see the film over her eyes, making her vision blurred, a new depth of meaning came to me.
I am greatly anticipating the publication of this deck and I am hoping to be reading with them in the very near future. This is sure to become one of my most favorite decks.
Danielle is a talented artist and her knowledge of the tarot and dedication to her vision is very obvious to anyone who takes the time to check out this impressive deck.
