Most visually sumptuous Tarot ever?
on November 3, 2004
This is a commercial printing of a Tarot deck that was first hand-produced, costing hundreds of dollars. Many considered it well worth that cost. It is certainly well worth the present price! This Tarot is visually stunning, with rich colours and crisp fantasy images. Merging computer-generated or enhanced imagery with a pseudo-medieval style, this deck is fully illustrated in the Rider-Waite sense. Every card is a delight, and one can enjoy just looking as much as reading. If there is any downside here, it might be that the images are so lovely they are somewhat distracting. The 78 card deck comes in a shelfbox with an illustrated and nicely thought-out book, useful for near-beginners as well as more advanced Tarot readers. This might not be the very best "first deck" for an absolute beginner, but it should have a place in the collection of every serious Tarot reader or collector. I'm sure glad it in mine!
