Book Description

Sept. 8 2000
Celtic myth and legend, like the Tarot itself, come from a luminous space and provide us with a portal, connecting our everyday lives with the spiritual world. The Celtic Tarots, a synthesis of the mysteries of Celtic lore, the wisdom of the Tarot, and the exquisite art of Gaudenzi and Tenuta, aid in the esoteric art of divination. The illustrations for the Major Arcana are shaped by Celtic myth, legend, and history.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Nicely Done Deck May 13 2004
I ordered this when it first came out and have used it off and on since. This deck does not come with an accompanying book, just a small fold out flyer. This is the reason why I couldn't give it a 5 star rating. A deck like this really does need a thorough book to go with it. The flyer doesn't due the deck justice by not going into much detail in the divinatory meanings, just a word or two, so I think this would be very confusing for someone new to tarot. I'm a professional tarot reader by trade and I would've enjoyed reading more about the symbolism used in the cards.
The cards are slightly firm and have a nice slick lamination which makes them easy to shuffle. The artwork is amazing and this alone makes this deck worth purchasing. The colors used are bold and tend to sway toward the darker end of the color spectrum which I think gives it a more masculine feel than most decks I've seen. Don't get me wrong, I think the ladies will like it too, but men won't be turned off by it since it's definitely not a frilly deck.
While the Celtic Tarots is very pleasing to the eye, it is still a deck of substance. You can tell how much thought went into all of the designs just by looking at each card. Every single one has a distinct story to tell if you open yourself up to them. Overall, I think this is a good deck to have, especially if you love anything Celtic.

4.0 out of 5 stars A GREAT, EVOCATIVE LITTLE DECK Feb. 17 2002
By A Customer
Don't be fooled by the small size of this deck, or the fact that it's a Celtic deck made in Italy or that it doesn't come in a big fancy case; it's a really great deck that I would recommend to anyone interested in an easy-to use deck with a Celtic feel.
The artwork is superb; really well done, other-wordly creatures and people. The pictures almost have a fantasy cartoon look to them. I could see them as illustrations in a Celtic faery tale book. Lots of detail & and great images that are very striking so they help you remember what the individual cards mean. Some of the characters were so intense that I began fantasing about them as if they were characters in a book.
Using these cards in a reading is very easy & fun. I got some really good results with it. If you enjoy Celtic images & are tired of some of the other decks out there that have second-rate artwork, then check this deck out.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! Dec 13 2002
By A Customer
I don't know why this deck is not more well known. I bought it some time ago on av whim (didn't know what it looked like) and boy was I pleasantly surprised! It is a beautiful deck. As far as I know there is no book that goes with it (only a small folded pamphlet that comes in the card box), so that is a negative. I would like a book to help you along with this deck. Also, I wish the cards were bigger because they are so beautiful. each one could be a print to hang on your wall. In using this deck to give readings I have found it to be excellent. People I read for really are amazed at the beauty of the cards and how well the readings go.
GET THIS DECK!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely charming April 12 2005
By Steph - Published on Amazon.com
I've bought this deck following my interest in the Celtic culture and I've found it to be absolutely fantastic.

Pictures may look familiar to those people into cartomancy because they repeat those of the best know Rider Waite deck. Nevertheless this doesn't spoil the fascination of this deck.

Images are carefully drawn and they are soaked with Celtic atmosphere. The Major Arcana depict the Gods of ancient Irish pantheon while the Minor Arcana tell the story of the four populations that inhabitate Ireland according to Celtic Myths: the horrible Phomores, the warrior like Ulaids, the ancient gods Tuatha de Danaan and the chivalrous Fianna.

Since I bought this deck I've been using this only although I have many different decks. In addition, the cards are made of good and sturdy material so they can be used more and more times without getting damaged.

The pack comes with a small leaflet that explains an alternative way to lay down the cards although I prefer using the usual methods.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Celtic Deck Feb. 3 2009
By Angela Knotts - Published on Amazon.com
I absolutely love this tarot deck. It's easy to transport and the pictures are fantastic. If you go to [...], there is a complete description of each card and the celtic stories behind them. (Don't just go by the leaflet that comes with the deck, it doesn't do it justice.) For anyone that feels a connection to the Celtic culture like I do, I would highly recommend this deck.

5.0 out of 5 stars Celttic Taror Deck Sept. 22 2010
By doleary315 - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
If you are into Celtic Mythology or of Celtic Heritage then this is the deck for you. The pictures are true to the Gods and Goddess of a time long gone by. The Artwork is flawless combining both aspects of the Celtic realm and that of traditional 78 card deck. The name of the card and or suite is in Gaelic on the bottom of the card. The English, Spanish, German, French. It is a must have deck to add to any collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whats not to like? Sept. 4 2008
By Richard K. Kostoff - Published on Amazon.com
This deck is somewhat of an anomaly. It is of a high quality design. The cards themselves are sturdy and should hold up for many years of reading. That is the problem. Readablity. I am trying to learn Celtic Mythology, yet this interpretation is not the best source. The major trumps are confusing with little information regarding thier origins. The chariot, which looks like the wheel of fortune, has skulls, I normally reserve for death, which has none. Get my point?

Lo Scarabeo is great at what it does. I have some outstanding decks from them. Usually the cards stand on thier own. This pack does not, as far as the Majors are concerned. Much more research and information should have been provided for the customer. The craftsmanship is great. The final product is confusing. The minor arcana is superb, with the best set of court cards I have ever seen. One more inconsistency of this deck. Perhaps one artist should have designed it.

I am giving the deck 5 stars for effort alone. It is a nice art deck for the collector. As far as using it for divination, there are better packs out there. I will file this under beautiful, but impractical.
