This Tarot deck is the most beautiful, colourful and readable decks by the very talented Hertz! I have all 3 of her decks and The Faerie Tarot bumped her Vampire Tarot out of its 1st place for me : ).
The images are bursting with colour! Every shade one can imagine. Each suit of the minor arcana follows a season, so each suit has distinct coloura. My favurite is Autumn (Wands)...Hertz captures the melancholy sweetness of Autumn so well. Swords are Winter with gorgeous deep blues and snowflakes. Cups are Spring with scentful flowers and growing life. Pentacles are Summer with all their ripeness and richness. I personally have always followed a different interpertation of the suits and seasons....but Hertz does such a wonderful depiction in the cards that is was no issue at all to awitch and use these cards. I love how every card has a different vibrant colour, but they really compliment each image....you can tell whoever chose the border colours to match up with the scene was doing it with attention and eye for detail.
They are a bit wider and shorter than average size cards, and they shuffle sweetly in your hands. I love this size! The backs are a stunning mix of dark and shaded blues, dusky white and a butter cream yellow. They remind me greatly of French County style!
The minors are each and every one gorgeous. I especially love The High Priestess and the subtly gothic and dark Empress and Emperor pair.
This deck reads very fluidly and intuitively. The images speak clearly and gently....very magical! I've gotten some insightful and amazing readings since I've been using this deck almost everyday for 6 months. It's a firm favourite now! The little white book included is much better than most. She goes into pretty good detail of the scene, detail and symbols of every card and what the arcana might mean or protray as a jumping off point for your intuition.
I absolutely completely love and adore faeries and IMO this the BEST and most beautiful Faerie tarot now available to buy right now! I'm so happy Hertz took her time, love and talent to create this enchanting journey with the fae...thank you!
If you love faeries, more whimsical style Tarots but still want a deep hard hitting reading deck....you will not be disappointed, order with glee = )
