The cards are very nice.
Brian Warner
It's a much different style and system but I find it's easier to read in some ways and harder in other.

I was concerned from another reviewer who ordered this deck and got something else. However, I just received my deck today and it's exactly as the one pictured.

The cards are very nice. I think they are larger then the usual Lenormand styled cards. These are about the size of a Tarot card. They have the card inserts and the watercolor paintings. It also comes with a booklet of instructions, in English, that give the definitions as well as two layouts.

The main reason I subtracted one star, is that the spreads/layouts offered in the simple book are not very practical. The first spread you are to do on New Years Day... so it's a spread you'll use once a year? If you had 2 spreads to give your readers, why would you pick that one? The other spread is more useful. However, the books definitions of the cards also seemed to waiver what I read from other authorities on Lenormand.

Another reason, I took off a star... if your style is to use direction of the card (i.e. man faces woman, man faces away from woman) to influence the meaning - this deck will be frustrating. The man and woman cards both face the same direction. So they will never face each other. Likewise the clouds are not split light on the left, dark on the right. So if you go by a card bordering the light side, you'll either have to infer left = light or not using that method of meaning.

I think if you are new to Lenormand (like me) this is a great card set. It looks beautiful and has a great feel to it. But you'll need to follow the advice from another source then the accompanied book most likely.

I noticed the book does card reversals... I hadn't heard of that before from other Lenormand teachers. In fact it seems almost alone on the matter.

At any rate, it's a great deck. There are so few to actually find easily obtainable in the states. This one you can get via Amazon Prime, and it looks great.

Just so we're clear - these are Lenormand cards. They have traditional style artwork on the cards. However, they are HUGE cards for a Lenormand deck. Lenormand cards are typically the same size as Bridge cards or sometimes even Poker cards (although they can be smaller) but they are not generally the size of large tarot cards. That said, the cards read as any other traditional or traditionally-styled Lenormand deck. The large size may be better-suited for someone with failing eyesight or whose hands prefer a larger sized card (I find them difficult to shuffle due to their large size - but I also find many tarot decks difficult to shuffle for the same reason). he card stock is thick so I'm guessing it may be well-wearing. Certainly not flimsy.

Since they are so large, it does mean you would need a very large area to lay out a Grand Tableau. However, if you have the space to do so, then these cards can come in handy - especially if you are the sort who also likes to read the House cards in a GT. The large size of these cards actually works out well to be the "house cards" in a GT while a more normal-sized deck of Lenormand cards would be shuffled and laid on top for a GT reading. In fact, I used one of the cards in this deck as a tracer onto a piece of fabric to create my own Lenormand GT spread cloth.

The cards come nicely boxed.
Set includes a mini book with 159 pages of instructions, has upright and reversed meanings for each card plus some layouts.
Each card is 3.50 x 4 7/8 inches. book is same dimentions.
The cards are bigger than im used to using, i find the size hard to shuffle.
The artwork i do like alot. I've always been a fan of victorian era art.
Over all nice set and have enjoyed so far. I would recommend. just keep in mind they are large.
This is a second set i had to order. The first set was missing a card but returned to amazon for a replacement with no problem

This is my first Lenormand Oracle and I love it. The cards are HUGE, so a little awkward, but the artwork is very clear and pleasant to look at, which I think is very good for a Lenormand, where you don't want to be distracted by thick symbolism you can draw out of the background. I'm learning from the book, "Learning Lenormand," by Marcus Katz and Tali Goodwin, which is a wonderful learning tool, especially for a Tarot reader like myself, who is used to a different system of cartomancy. I recommend this deck.

I am a tarot reader and a cartomancy (regular playing cards) reader. I have had a set of gypsy fortune telling cards as well. I am new to Lenormand cards though. It's a much different style and system but I find it's easier to read in some ways and harder in other. As with any new divination skills will take a bit of time. Since I am highly intuitive already I pick up most quickly. I don't feel it's necessary to memorize the meanings at this point but if I do need to learn more about meanings and combinations not all the meanings in the book or what I would necessarily use. In the book there are meanings for reversed and upright and what the card would mean for each position as well. As a beginner I like having straightforward meanings and card combinations to choose from so I haven't used the book the came with the set too much. Other resources have proved better for me. I love to use this deck for very spiritual based readings and for spirit type communications. The artwork is beautiful to me and I will be buying other lenormand cards on the market because I enjoy this style of reading so far.
