5.0 out of 5 stars Jane Austen and the Tarot ~ A marriage made in Heaven Sept. 19 2007
By Rashchupkina - Published on Amazon.com
This deck has a very special place in my heart. As soon as I heard my beloved Austen was being paired with my other grand passion, Tarot, I was beside myself with pure excitement! I've had the set now almost 7 months and love it more and more each day. This is the kind of deck that the one pours more attention, study and use into intimately knowing it, it opens up it's secrets and shows you the deepest depths in it's images,intuition and stories.

The match-ups with each card with a story is truly inspired and magical. Wilkes knows her Tarot and Austen. It took someone with this kind of intimate knowledge of both subjects to pull off a creative endeavor such as this. Anything less and it would have collapsed. All the court cards are just as wisely and perfectly chosen....the characters she chose truly "are" the corresponding Tarot royal courts.

The images are just wonderful, so evocative of the books and time period. When I meditate and look closely at a card, I can feel myself within the scene/story. These cards awaken my intution and my imagination can see the before and after of each image, or even create a brand new story. The style is a bit comic book like, but in the best sense and I think lends well to the story/narrative power of the cards. The Majors are done in wonderful vibrant colour and the minors have a kind of sheen in varying shades of the corresponding suits. It's a unique and fascinating idea, but I so wish all the cards were as beautifully coloured as the Majors. I love the backs, very Regency and a soothing blue.

The book in my opinion is a must have, even if you're very knowledgeable about Austen's books, it really brings alive the connections between the cards and each relative story. Wilkes shows her mastery of Tarot with marrying the stories, cards and interpertations. I love the "What would Jane do?" sections at the end. She also includes a short sypnosis of each book, very helpful for jogging any bits if you've forgotten details or have never read any Austen. The colour and cover of the book is whimsical and delightful, reminiscent of marbled/swirled old-fashioned book covers.

This is extremely well done and useable Tarot theme, I get wonderful, intricate readings and insights. It has enriched my life in many ways. It is an excellent deck for storytelling with the Tarot and intuitive narration.

If you love Austen, get this! It just might open the doors to the magical erethral world of Tarot. If you love Austen and Tarot....then it's a given, buy this now! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Such good breeding May 21 2009
By W. Reid - Published on Amazon.com
This is a terrific deck. A great deal of thought went into marrying the aspirational world of Austen to the rich symbolism of tarot. Practical and useful, it's also wise and beautiful. I love bright colours in a deck, and this one is a bit muted for my taste. Nonetheless, this deck will richly repay time spent with it. As a tarot collector with many, many decks, this pack rises to high society. It makes it look easy--but you know it was hard work!

Beautiful deck of cards. Lovely art work. I bought them for my sister who was a member of the Jane Austen Society at one time. I read the cards and think this deck will be suitable for clients dealing with relationship issues.

This is a gift for a friend who likes Austen and Tarot. I'm guessing that she'll be over the moon when she opens it.
