This Tarot deck is the most beautiful, colourful and readable decks by the very talented Hertz! I have all 3 of her decks and The Faerie Tarot bumped her Vampire Tarot out of its 1st place for me : ).

The images are bursting with colour! Every shade one can imagine. Each suit of the minor arcana follows a season, so each suit has distinct coloura. My favurite is Autumn (Wands)...Hertz captures the melancholy sweetness of Autumn so well. Swords are Winter with gorgeous deep blues and snowflakes. Cups are Spring with scentful flowers and growing life. Pentacles are Summer with all their ripeness and richness. I personally have always followed a different interpertation of the suits and seasons....but Hertz does such a wonderful depiction in the cards that is was no issue at all to awitch and use these cards. I love how every card has a different vibrant colour, but they really compliment each image....you can tell whoever chose the border colours to match up with the scene was doing it with attention and eye for detail.

They are a bit wider and shorter than average size cards, and they shuffle sweetly in your hands. I love this size! The backs are a stunning mix of dark and shaded blues, dusky white and a butter cream yellow. They remind me greatly of French County style!

The minors are each and every one gorgeous. I especially love The High Priestess and the subtly gothic and dark Empress and Emperor pair.

This deck reads very fluidly and intuitively. The images speak clearly and gently....very magical! I've gotten some insightful and amazing readings since I've been using this deck almost everyday for 6 months. It's a firm favourite now! The little white book included is much better than most.

"I devoted much time and pleasure in designing this Tarot deck, which portrays the four seasons. These cards pay homage to nature, its fauna and its flora, my sources of inspiration." - Nathalie Hertz, from the L(ittle) W(hite) B(ook)

The Faerie Tarot is a very special deck for French artist Nathalie Hertz, primarily because her two daughters were born during its creation. In fact, as she was designing The World card for this deck, she was pregnant with her first child. Convinced it was a girl, she painted a wee female fairy amid a delicate orchid for the central image of this favorable card.

Resplendent with bright colors, the Faerie Tarot emanates a soothing, gentle presence, but doesn't shy away from addressing the vagaries and challenges that touch worlds both human and fae. From the impish, playful and proud Devil to the ageless fairy High Priestess crowned with a spangled diadem, the Major Arcana cards speak of wisdom and folly, hope and discouragement, achievement and respite.

The Minor Arcana cards find their home among the four seasons: Cups for Spring, Pentacles for Summer, Wands for Autumn and Swords for Winter. Although the vivid borders lack a definitive color scheme, the cards within each of the four Minor Arcana suits do reflect the hallmarks of their respective season.

The Faerie Tarot Swords show snowy landscapes, while pinecones and fallen leaves pepper the autumnal Wands. Blooming flowers and lush sheaves of wheat adorn the summery Pentacles, as the spring Cups suit sparkles with newness and promise.

Measuring approximately 4 ¼ x 3 ¼ inches, the cards shuffle wonderfully, especially for smaller hands.

I am a first time buyer. This is my first tarot deck and I have to say that I absolutly love it! I searched through literally hundreds of decks online, and after I saw this one I couldn't find another one that I liked that much. So after reading as much as I could about the Faerie Tarot I decided that it was the one for me. I love the colors, and the faeries are so beautifully drawn. There is great detail in every card. I had read that this deck is not recommened for beginners, but the little white book that came with it, was easy for me to understand. All my friends say that Im pretty acurate when I read for them too. It's easy to handle them and they are nice and smooth. This is a great deck and I know that if you buy it, you'll love it too!!!

Exquisite artwork, vibrant colors, beautiful symbolism. I cannot say enough about this deck. It is absolutely stunning. The jewel tones of the cards are just incredible. Not muted at all. SO vivid and beautiful! The talent that went into this deck is just magical. The cardstock is excellent, and the packaging is beautiful...this is my favorite packaging of any deck I have (I have approximately 25 tarot and oracle decks). The deck comes in a regular tuck box with the little white book, and the tuck box "tucks" into a larger box that has a sliding cover. It's just such a treat to open. The cards have rounded edges, and are lovely to hold. They are a bit wider than other "standard" sized tarot decks, and since I have small hands, I do find it most comfortable to shuffle using the "corner shuffle" method. I love absolutely everything about this deck. This deck will be treasured by anyone who loves vivid colors, animal symbolism, and faeries.
