Here she has created various offerings, such as The Transparent Tarot, the Transparent Oracle, and The Tarot of the Sidhe for Schiffer Books. She has also contributed book covers, articles and artwork for several works from Avalonia Books. To date these titles include Towards a Wiccan Circle (Cover), Both Sides of Heaven, (Cover and article- "The Salvation of the Sidhe"), From a Drop of Water (Article- "Nimue: The Archetypal Priestess"), Hekate Her Sacred Fires (Cover, Article- "Painting Hekate" and internal illustrations), and VS.

Avalonia also recently published Gods of the Vikings which features cover art and numerous illustrations by Emily. She is a regular columnist for Mermaids and Mythology magazine and has recently finished putting the finishing touches to Faery Craft, a new faery lifestyle and magical practice book due out from Llewellyn in Autumn 2012.

I've been enamoured of this deck since well before it was published -- I'd study the images on Aeclectic Tarot and wonder what it would be like to actually have the deck in person. They are wonderful --Schiffer (the publisher) did a great job for Emily. They're really big I should say, which is one way they might be good for meditation, as there is more area for the image. The Great Glyph (from John Matthews book _The Sidhe: Wisdom from the Celtic Otherworld) luminously graces the backs of the cards. Now, I am just beginning to sense/feel/understand this deck, having only received it yesterday. Though I have been into Tarot for about 25 years, I've been travelling the faery path for even longer, so I can say straight up that I hold this deck in great reverence, probably more for the fae communication side of it than the tarot side. This is truly a powerful deck, and there is no doubt that Emily was really connected as she did this deck. The reviewer who suggested going slowly with this deck really has a feel for it -- that was my feeling too, immediately. I sensed at once that I could become overwhelmed. As to another reviewer who felt that it wasn't a deck she could read with, it may be -- there are hundreds of decks out there that I just can't imagine reading with, but for me, I get the feeling this won't be one of them. BUT having said that, I realized as soon as I had them in my hands that this deck was made up of many layers. Also, it is intimately, not superficially, connected to the fae or sidhe folk, and for that reason, I'd be wanting to only read with it for others on the path of the faery faith, or use it just for myself. I have other decks that work wonderfully for general readings. This deck has many things to impart to me. I can't wait to begin furthering the relationship!

I decided to write a review because this is one of the best decks I had bought in many years. First, the creation of the art was a natural process not an imposed one. The artist opened herself to the call of art, images flow spontaneously from her heart and her hands obeyed... The colors are strong, almost primary, but they moved the whole of me when I looked at them, they convey a message on their own as if they have a personality. The archetypes spring out of the cards with a unique earthly and warm presence, like if they were part of me. I have a sensation when looking at the cards, like if I had met them before in a dream...

The artist invest the deck with a fresh approach to tarot structure. The suits are reordered in a way that add significance and make sense with the cohesive structure of the deck. If you are a tarot scholar or if you are an experienced reader you will savor the essence of the Sidhe. But if you are a new reader you can read with them too, if you let the cards speak to you, not you imposse other books meanings to the cards. You have to let the unique presence of the Sidhe speak to you. If you are a creative person, sensitive to nature and other realities you will find the deck a precious token with so many uses as your imagination dictate...

The book is another work of art. Full of fine prose, poetry, spreads and even songs. Love the deck!
The cards are more big than usual, strong carton, very manageable.

I obviously have not had the deck very long but I must say it's wonderful. I waited a really long time for the release and I know now it was worth the wait. I have a special connection with the Sidhe, mainly due to reading John Matthews's book "The Sidhe". It helped me make a truely spiritual connection, like no other, through the meditations and other guided learnings.
Anyway purchase this deck if you truely want magick in your life and The Sidhe to guide and teach you.
Thanks Amazon for getting the deck to me so quickly , or was it The Sidhe ?? We'll never know for sure....

I have admired this deck for a long time, looking at the images online. Over many years I have collected many tarot decks for the art, and thought that my day of wanting another deck just wouldn't happen.

I do my readings with a traditional Rider deck, but when I saw this deck I was immediately drawn in. Emily's adaptations are beautiful, and profound; but I honestly felt that the Fae were calling me to work with them! and I don't say that lightly. The imagery and the colors are strong and compelling.

Yes, you could do traditional readings with these cards, but I felt a meditative, almost sacredness coming off these cards. I have never said that about any other deck before! My college age daughter sat thoughtfully, going through each card carefully, totally mesmerized by what was presented. She doesn't read tarot, but knew that these cards were special as well.

They will be my 'private' deck - to work with in a meditative way. I intuitively felt that I was given an invitation to come and learn.

If any reader here, has read Karen Marie Moning's "Fever" trilogy about the Fae, you will definitely connect to these cards.
They are big, which is needed to fully appreciate the artwork, and they are sturdy.
What more can I say? Emily has given the world a very unique and magical deck!
