The official BOTA deck is too good to be true! The Case-Parkerendition is cleaner, with less cross-hatching, to facilitate easierhand coloring. I used colored pencils to color my deck, and I am very well pleased with the results, which resemble stained glass in their vivid brilliance and intensity. There is perhaps no better way to ingrain the imagery of the Tarot into one's subconscious mind than to color each card oneself. The personal energy and intent which goes into the creation of one's own unique deck makes for a very powerful and Magickal Tarot indeed! I would heartily recommend this deck to anyone who is serious about learning the Qabalistic symbology of the Tarot as a method of the Western Esoteric Traditions.
