A MUST HAVE FOR FANS OF TAROT AND/OR ALICE
on May 21, 2002
This is my fifth tarot deck and I have to say that I just love it. It's quite clever to design a deck based on the classic "Alice in Wonderland." Would have rated this deck higher except that it does NOT comes with an instruction book, but rather a quick-and-to-the-point pamphlet that truly simplifies the meanings of the cards. If, however, you are versed in the traditional Ryder-Waite deck then you should have no trouble skipping the pamphlet and using your own intuition. The suits have been reconfigured into flamingoes, oysters, hats, and peppermills, which can be quite confusing. Due to the whimsical nature of the card, you might want to use it for more whimsical readings. But, like I said, if you ARE a fan of tarot decks with unusual design you should DEFINITELY get this deck and use it for those "special" occasions.
