Overview

Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti, Barbara Moore

The Traditional Tarot for the 21st Century

Most Tarot decks with really spectacular designs are really just art collections. The Gilded Tarot transcends this limitation by having some of the most strikingly beautiful art on any Tarot deck, yet follows the Rider-Waite-Smith model. The result is a unique deck that any person with some Tarot experience will find instantly familiar and usable. This deck can be used with any Tarot system or book.

You really must see the cards to believe their beauty. The High Priestess dances on water in a translucent dress of stars. She bends backwards in front of a crescent moon, looking like a classic lamp from the 1920s. The Wheel of Fortune shows the zodiacal wheel around a solar center as part of a bizarre, almost alien machine. The Hanging Man follows this machine concept, but he is dressed in brilliant reds and greens.

The colors are deep and intense, almost metallic. They draw you in and will have you staring at the images repeatedly. But this is more than a deck to look at, it's a deck to use! The Gilded Tarot Companion, a full book by Tarot expert Barbara Moore, is included with this deck. It's a complete introduction so that even a beginner can use this deck right away.

If you're tired of the old style of the RWS deck and its imitators, if you're looking for a familiar deck that will take you into the future, this is the deck you want to use.

The Guilded Tarot is indeed a beautiful deck for both novice & expert. However, for those that are insisting that 'Judgment' is misspelled, please do refer to a collegiate dictionary as you will find that both 'Judgement' and 'Judgment' are both acceptable spellings in the English language. No sense in needlessly destroying the deck's image without investigating further.

This deck has very vivid pictures that tell the meaning of the card easily. I am impressed with this deck most of all because it made me feel like I could understand and not feel confused when I did my readings. My other deck was not easy to handle and use every day. This however is. I would recomend this to both beginners and more advanced readers.

What caught my eye first is the beauty of the cards, the detail is amazing! I'm new to the tarot and have enjoyed using these cards to start my new adventure.

This is an absolutely gorgeous deck. I've noticed that others complained of the misspelling of the word 'judgment'. However, this is _not_ misspelled in the book and deck. 'Judgement' is a perfectly valid spelling, and is the preferred British spelling.

I was looking for my first deck about six months ago. I had heard from numerous books and sources, 'Rider-Waite is best for beginners'. However, I wanted something with more beauty and flavor. When I found that the Gilded Tarot was based on the popular deck, I fell in love with it and found it to be my personal deck that all around suits me entirely. The computer generated images might lose some lust under very, very, very close scrutination, but everytime you draw a card, it's like seeing it for the first time. It gives the deck an original feel while still keeping RW symbolism. If you're a beginner who feels insecure about making RW your first deck, the Gilded Tarot gives you a fantastic, easy-to-use alternative.

Very colorful deck that talks to you with minimal reading of the book. Beautiful artwork.

I had never worked with tarot before but I read up on them before I bought a deck, and I wasn't quite ready for the RiderWaite so I bought these.... And they truly are wonderful. The only thing that I saw that was a bit distracting was the misspelling of Judgment, but not everything or everyone is perfect. But other than that, these cards are alluring and beautiful, and I recommend them if you are a beginner and need that pizzazz of vision to jumpstart your journey with the tarot. But after that, definitely buy RiderWaite

I purchased this deck after searching high and low for a great deck. Very colorful and beautiful illustrations. However, to my disappointment the 'Judgment' card is spelled incorrectly...not only on the card, but throughout the entire book as well. Could not believe it and threw all the energy out the door.
