A deck you keep coming back to - beautiful and thoughtful,
This review is from: Victoria Regina Tarot (Paperback)The thing that everyone always tells you first about this deck is that it's black and white - which may sound less lavish than a full colour deck.
In fact one of the many wonderful things about the Victoria Regina is the way in which the intricacy of the images feels both subdued and lush - if you thought you didn't like black and white decks try this one - it will change your mind. It manages to feel delicate and lavish at the same time. The images are fabulously well composed and have a lot of atmosphere about them.
It's also one of those rare decks with a very intelligent sense of humour - it's one of the things I most enjoy about it. The
The book is also GREAT. I use it now as a general tarot book because again, it's intelligent, not too obvious - it doesn't just churn out the formulaic meanings - and it's really well thought through. It can always offer something of value to a reading - and it's a fun way to pick up some history too!
Very warmly recommended - all in all The Victoria Regina is one of my favourites and I think always will be.
- and maybe I should also just add that as a deck designer myself this is a piece of work that I very much respect - it's done with real care, skill and knowledge.
