upon opening it, i was impressed even further, the gate fold design is very luxurious in design and detail, the books in excellent condition, plus the added "post cards" and card prints of Pamela's early concept designs are beautiful.
the deck is beautiful...I have the A. E. Waite Deck, and it's really interesting to compare the two decks together to see the subtle changes and nuances in design...
now...I have two minor "issues" with this set...and I must point out that they are very minor issues at best
1. the cards come with no box...I would have preferred the box/container for the cards...instead what was provided is my next minor issue
2. the pouch to carry the cards in...it's a nylon/organza feel pouch in I must say a gawd awful powder blue colour (a dark green to go with the box colour would have been a better choice)...I'm thinking to look for a nice wooden box to put them in, or a silk pouch that's not ABBA blue (lol)
other than those two very minor niggles, I would highly recommend this deck to anyone looking for a fantastic "variation" of the classic Rider Deck that was designed by Pamela Colman Smith.
I really really like the muted colours. It gives an old time vintage feel.
I really really like the backs of the cards, they are a nice light blue with a simple flower in the middle and Pamela's signature.
The size is perfect and the thickness of the cards is also right on point.
If you are looking for a rider Waite tarot deck and you're not sure which one to choose, I recommend looking at the comparison videos on YouTube. I unfortunately couldn't find the video that helped me but there are quite a few videos that talk about the differences in colour, texture, shine, and print quality. Not to mention decks printed in different decades. ( there are differences!)
Because I like vintage looking things I quite like this deck. I feel like it's also a high quality deck in terms of colour, shape, texture like I mentioned.
The extras that come in the set, the mesh bag, the little postcard sized renderings of her art, I wasn't too thrilled about. They weren't the best quality. But, they are just extras really. I bought the set for the deck itself. And it's my go to tarot deck now :)
