a quote by Emerson: "All that Adam had, all that Caesar could, you have and can do...Build, therefore, your own world."
You will love this deck!
Even an amateur of Tarot, like myself, can tell right away that this deck is the real deal.
It is in itself a "Masterpiece", of masterpieces!
Don't hesitate- get it. You won't be disappointed. I've been using it for the past month- each morning I shuffle the deck and pick a card...and it somehow makes the day brighter- no matter what's happening in my life. It allows me to approach the day with a more meaningful and positive outlook, which hey, for $20 dollars- I'd say it's one of the best returns on any investment I've ever made. On weekends, or when I have more time I look at the booklet that the author wrote and I use some of her suggestions as far as lay out...she has made it so easy and approachable! It's just a great way to spend a few minutes with myself- over a leisurely Saturday or Sunday morning coffee. True meaning and wisdom can be hard to find with all of the craziness today- and with the pace of life.
Charlene Livingstone offers some wisdom and happiness to all of us with this deck...it's a treasure and I feel lucky to have discovered it. I never write reviews- but I had to for this deck- I wish the author and publisher great success and will look out for more of the same in the future! :)
As I have confessed before, I am a quotaholic: I am powerless over a good quote. And what better way to have a quote a day to fulfill my quota than the Art of Life Tarot Deck by Charlene Livingstone. This stunning deck combines three of my passions: art, tarot and quotes, but what really impressed me the most was the packaging. The cards come in a box where the lid folds up into a nifty little pop up frame, complete with a clear plastic cover, making this a wonderful accoutrement for your desk or altar.
The Art of Life, recently published by US Games Systems, can be used for traditional tarot readings but for me works best as my daily affirmation. For years it has been my practice to pull a tarot card everyday, and these delightful cards have added a new layer of literature and art appreciation to my life. While the oversized cards were difficult for my small hands to shuffle, they truly do the art and quotes justice, any smaller and details would have been lost. The card backs have a beautiful detail of The Tree of Life by Gustav Klimt.
Developed by Livingstone when her husband was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, she found herself using the tarot as a way to find meaning and comfort rather than a mere hobby. A vivid dream inspired her combine her experiences and sense of purpose to give others a means to also help themselves. She writes in the LWB, "most importantly, I created the Art of Life because I wanted to empower the reader...to give (a) sense of strength, possibility and optimism... To encourage contemplation and for the reader to discover that the answers to life lie within.Read more ›
The deck is beautifully reproduced and the box has an attached pop-up frame which will display one card at a time. Each card also has a quote printed below the painting which is relevant to the meaning of the card, making it easier for those new to tarot to work with the deck. Over-sized and meticulously designed, this deck is a perfect gift for yourself or others, whether you are a tarot enthusiast or not.
