Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I own many different Tarot decks and have a few favorites for one reason or another. As soon as I opened this deck, I knew this was going to be one of my favorites. The beautiful watercolor art, the stunning images, the exquisite use of color, and the dreamy look of the deck captured my senses and drew me in immediately. The original artwork and use of imagery brings a wonderful dimension to the standard deck and the accompanying book helps reveal the subtle nuances to each card. Stephanie Pui-Mun Law uses some non-traditional images in some of the depictions. Not all of the Chalices (or Cups) cards have the same image for the Chalices/Cups on each card, which may confuse some but inspire others with insightful interpretations. The book also does not include reversed interpretations, which some may miss if they prefer to read with reversals. I do not believe this takes away from any deck as the cards speak volumes as they are. Perfect for either experienced readers or novices, this deck and book will inspire any reader with its images and meanings.
Very fast shipping, smooth transaction, thank you.
