    Fantastic Creation

    Ciro Marchetti has created yet another masterpiece in Legacy of the Divine. His first deck, the Gilded Tarot, was beautiful; I thought it was beyond compare until I found Legacy of the Divine. Spectacular artwork and wonderful symbols. Much of the symbolism is based on the Rider-Waite deck, but it is brought to a new and vibrant life here. Not hard to work with, easy to learn. Great for old hands or beginners.

    A Bold & Arresting Use of the Tarot

    Ciro Marchetti possesses a magnificent vision and the artistic talent to render it exquisitely. His Gilded Tarot and Tarot of Dreams are the stuff of legend - beautifully coloured and textured work packed with endlessly fascinating detail and a deliciously retro-futuristic worldview. His latest effort, The Legacy of the Divine Tarot, which has dazzled and stunned in limited release, is now made widely available in an edition by Llewellyn.

    Marchetti's art pulses with action, seductively presaging the animations of the cards that he is preparing for his new website. The cards are produced in a style to show the art to advantage, the art fading in a gradient to the black borders. The words on the cards are minimal, which further focuses the eye on the art. The imagery itself is arresting - machines of superb aesthetic beauty manufacturing wonder in environments of striking intensity, elegant human forms in graceful attitudes, vivid scenes that startle and stir the senses, rich jewels, glowing metals, mysterious luminosity revealing situations fraught with meaning. Vision, vibration and archetype take the Tarot in new directions - inward, outward and beyond.

    The book provides a fascinating back story for the origin of the concept, and the detailed descriptions of the cards and their meanings are written by Marchetti himself as well as RuthAnn and Wald Amberstone (the Tarot School), Leisa ReFalo (the Tarot Connection ), and James Ricklef (Tarot of the Masters) which adds a greater layer of depth and interest. There are spreads and exercises that will enhance both an appreciation of this deck's utility and a shed new light on established Tarot work.

    Marchetti's magnificently rendered vision marks the dawn of a new day in Tarot

    Just as great as the Gilded Tarot!

    Again Marchetti has outdone himself. The Gilded Tarot and The Legacy of the Divine Tarot are among the best that I've ever worked with. I can't wait for his Tarot of Dreams to become available!

    Beautiful Artwork and Excellent Companion Book

    The first thing that attracted me to this deck was the stunning artwork as well as the use of color and symbology. I have several different tarot decks I work with and am always appreciate a deck that speaks to me with its colors and designs. The images are great for messages as well as meditation.

    This deck speaks volumes and would be an excellent addition to anyone's collection or a perfect deck for a beginner to start with. The companion book is very well written and helps guide one thru the deck, spreads, and divination.

    AWESOME

    THis is an amazing tarot set. I know how strange it is to get metaphysical supplys at a Barnes and Noble, but you take what you can get, and I'll tell you, this one is one of the great ones! This set is beautifully made and the pictures are amazing! :) One of my favorite parts was that in the major arcana the Hyrophant is portrayed as Faith instead, to open the meaning up to all faiths and beleif systems! What a wonderful idea! LOVE LOVE LOVE

    Divine Tarot cards and book

    The cards are simply awesome. The first time i opened and saw them they seemed to pull me towards them. Book is useful for understanding and gives information point wise about all cards. But you may need to buy a beginners book for better understanding if u are new to Tarot.

    Legacy of the Divine Tarot

    The images on the cards are exceptional. They have great detail, color and imagination. I love different themes on Tarot cards, and this them is great. The cards are clearly marked, so if you use several different decks of Tarot cards, you will not have any problem in reading these cards. The cards are larger than a standard deck of playing cards. I do prefer Tarot cards that are large, so the size of these cards are the only "con" that I have, but they are the size of most decks.

    Another Masterpiece by Ciro Marchetti

    I so love this deck, it has now become my all-time favorite. The pictures,symbols speak to me. And it has enabled me to give eerily accurate readings. I am an avid tarot enthusiast and long-time psychic. I give these cards a big thumbs up.Everytime I use these cards, I am drawn into the story of the Legacy of the Divine. I like these better than the Gilded Tarot and I am happy with that deck. But the Legacy of the Divine tops that.
